Apologies if this question was answered in the vod and I missed it but…

Will it at some point be possible to use bullet without building anything from source? I think this is a major barrier to usage by the community. Bullet is fast and once it’s fully integrated it will have several advantages over dart, but I for one would not be willing to build from source (difficult getting every version of every from-source dependency correct, across the different development envs I use).

Definitely! Once the Bullet PR is merged, we’re going to release debs for it. After installing the debs, users will be able to use it with

ign gazebo --physics-engine ignition-physics-bullet-plugin
