What is it :question:

Lumin framework is a new framework that completely reimagines what a framework is on Roblox; it’s easy top learn and works greatly for both newer and more professional developers. We stride in supporting professional tooling and a healthy environment that promotes more fun in the developer side of things.

It comes packed with one of the best dynamic networking methods you can find, and a whole lot more. We highly recommend using a single script architecture with Lumin as we find that tey pair very well together. It also promotes the usage of Promises, a practice that is usually overlooked when programming. Promises come with tons of benefits, along with making your game future proof to any unintended side effects.

On the documentation, we have reviews created by real users and tutorials on how to use the framework. From there, you can see if it fits you or not.

GitHub issue:
  • src/Debugger has no file type, so syntax highlighting is disabled

This seems like a lightweight yet solid framework, and I’m glad to see it’s fully type-safe. Is there a page/readme for documentation? I’d like to read the API ref before I use it.

Not right now, but if you look at src/CanaryEngine.lua you can find documentation above each function and type. I am not the best documentation writer, but a website is shipping (probably tomorrow) that will host documentation and tutorials. Thanks for using my framework!

I personally don’t like using frameworks, but this looks pretty promising and I’m probably going to look into it later. Thanks for the resource!

No problem, I’m going to be adding an actual docs site soon. And yes, I felt the way same way about using frameworks when I was a beginner. I always felt they were too complicated and still do. I made CanaryEngine just like any other framework out there, but lightweight, easy to understand, and just overall better without all this weird declaring through the self keyword, which I feel like is being heavily misused. Another great plus is being type safe, as I love Roblox’s intellisense as a beginner and still think it’s an absolute godsend to implement typing.

Just wanted to let all of you know that a plugin for a coming soon to make your experience while using CanaryEngine easier. It will include package creating, lists, and a module to keep track of all packages and to keep intellisense enabled at all times. Hope you’re looking forward to it :eyes:

If this framework is basically just knit but bridgenet and datastore modules, I will actually try this!

The biggest reason what flinged me away from using bridgenet was because it had no support for knit. Thanks.

And, will there be a ts version too? I would also like a Flamework with bridgenet

I would add typescript support, but I have no idea how.

If you know some ts, you can add a .d.ts file and set the types.

I threw together a framework using a modified version of BridgetNet2 that is also very similar to Knit called Flux. You can try it if you want, but the documentation is lacking and its probably full of bugs. I think my ts works for the most part at least.

FluxFrameworkStandAlone@0.0.1.rbxl (309.6 KB)

i prefer a pretty stable framework for this kinda stuff. hopefully youll release it

I’ll try to work on it a little more, but as of right now, BridgeNet2 is not giving a performance increase I would’ve liked. Additionally, it’s missing InvokeFunctions, and the developer of BridgeNet2 doesn’t plan to add it himself.

It’s preffered that you don’t self-advertise on someone else’s post. Please move this to DM’s, thank you.

It’s not self-advertisement, but sure.

Framework Update


The framework has been updated:

  • Added install and uninstall to plugin
  • Added Utility, Benchmark, and Serialize (BlueSerializer by @commitblue) libs to the main module
  • Better NetworkSignal typing
  • Removed intellisense from plugin, it’s sadly impossible
  • A few QOL fixes
  • Add support for checking framework version automatically with GetLatestPackageVersionAsync, it is now an attribute under the main module.
  • Bug fixes

Small update to squeeze in here: Finished docs in 2 hours :partying_face:, now linked in main post.

Any update suggestions? I would like to take in some feedback.

I don’t know if it’s a good suggestion but can you add replicaservice on the framework?

Well, what can ReplicaService do that BridgeNet can’t? I’m not really in for 2 networking systems.
