I am new to HTC vive and would like to develop application for it. However, I must have missed something as it is unclear for me where to start.
For Oculus, I just downloaded their SDK and went through the samples and that got me start going (The documents in their web site are quite good).
For HTC Vive, I am a bit confused. My understanding is that I need to become a steam VR developer. I went to the SteamVR developer portal and it seems to suggest to use the OpenVR SDK. I followed the link to the github page. Is this the API that developers use to access HTC vive? I know that it supposes to encapulate the hardware underneath(be it HTC or Oculus). However, for whatever the reason, it doesn't quite click for me.
I would really like to know what is the offical SDK for application development for HTC Vive?
Thanks in advance!!!

You can start here: https://developer.viveport.com/
There you will find the necessary resources and links.
Are you developing using Unity or Unreal Engine 4 or other?
