I want to contribute to Spawning Tool!

Awesome! Spawning Tool is intended to be a tool for the community, so I hope you find it useful. The primary way to contribute is to create and publish great build orders! If you're interested in getting marked as a featured contributor, email us and we'll go from there.

If you have technical skills, there are a few levels you can help at:

  • If you're interested in the nitty-gritty of basic replay data structures, check out sc2reader, an open source project that is at the heart of Spawning Tool.
  • If you're interested in playing around with the build order data and commands and such, check out spawningtool, the open source project that extracts some details out of sc2reader. There are definitely issues to address there.
  • If you're interested in helping out with the website itself, contact us at

I have a project that needs StarCraft replay data. Can I get access to that?

Definitely! Just contact us via email, and we can figure out how we can send over the data in a usable format for you. We can't give server or direct database access, but we can generate dumps or provide replays

Do I have to pay anything to use the Spawning Tool?

Currently, no. Feel free to upload replays and poke around with the data however you like. If you're a tournament organizer and want to include the data in your casts, go for it. Let us know at if there's anything we can do to help out.
