Hi Francois,

  You can check out the Chimera source code (SVN) as described under the “source code” link on the Chimera download page.

	http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/sourcecode.html <http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/sourcecode.html>

You can also browse source files on our developer web site (linked from the Chimera page documentation index):

	http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/trac/chimera/browser <http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/trac/chimera/browser>

We have talked about moving ChimeraX our next generation version of Chimera to GitHub, maybe Chimera source could be moved too.  But it could be a lot of work and given all the other things we are working on we have not yet been sufficiently motivated to do it.  When ChimeraX APIs are stable the move to GitHub to get more outside developers will be worth the effort.
