Blu-Ray video disks have a file structure containing at least a BDMV subdirectory. It may also have other subdirectories like CERTIFICATE.

For example:

 BluRay_Disk
 ├── BDMV
 └── CERTIFICATE

Authoring A Blu-Ray Disk

I have not found an open-source authoring tool that can create menus.

tsMuxeR will build a Blu-Ray directory structure or an ISO file from a MKV file that has properly formatted video and audio tracks in it. See program help for details.

Burning Files To A Blu-Ray Disk

To burn the above sample structure directly to a disk:

Create An ISO Image

To create an ISO image from the above sample structure:

 genisoimage -allow-limited-size -iso-level 3 -udf -l -allow-lowercase -V "Disk Title" -o "bluray.iso" "BluRay_Disk/"

Ripping A Blu-Ray Disk

Use HandBrake (ghb) to extract a video title from a Blu-Ray disk or an ISO image.

Use makemkv to extract Blu-Ray tracks to MKV files.
