API per functionality

For a list of common ROS repositories, see the ROS GitHub Organizations.

ROS supports several Client Libraries, though the main supported libraries are C++ roscpp and rospy. There are also numerous ROS stacks and packages that provide higher-level functionality. Support for higher-level functionality in various languages is summarized below.
