Developing applications

Development of Wii homebrew applications is both fun and challenging. If you want to develop homebrew for the Wii, you will need some tools.



  • If you would like to create a page for your application while developing it, create it in your user namespace and link to it on the List of homebrew applications (in development) page. You can move it to the article namespace when it is released.
  • It is strongly recommended to create icon.png and meta.xml files for your application to make it compatible with the Homebrew Channel.
  • When your application is ready to be released, you can create a page for your application in the article namespace. Make sure to add the {{infobox homebrewapp}} template and fill it in as much as you can.
  • If you would like, you can host your application here on wiibrew by uploading it. Otherwise, you can upload it somewhere else and link to it. Please avoid sites like Rapidshare, as they are slow and a hassle to download from.
