We believe that comprehensive documentation is a key part of enabling Creators to make great content on Roblox. This is why we have been investing a lot of time and energy into overhauling everything around the documentation you see on Roblox today, whether that be Luau/Engine API reference, tutorials, guides, or anything in between.
We’re excited to announce the open beta of a new resource - the Docs Site! Today, this holds all of the Engine API reference, as well as newly categorized guides. As the Docs team continues to migrate the longer-form content from Developer Hub over to the new Docs Site, you will find that the DevHub is slowly deprecated, and eventually entirely replaced.
Internally, the documentation authoring pipeline has been overhauled as well, which makes it easier for Roblox Staff to fully document the features they release. Eventually, we plan to enable community-sourced suggestions as well.
This is a major milestone in our efforts to provide great documentation but is definitely not the end of the road. We’re continuing to invest in documentation, as well as the new Docs Site. This will include comprehensive documentation for Open Cloud APIs, improved search, and more. As we progress through the Beta, we will be focusing on QoL improvements as well.
We can’t wait to hear what you think!
The Creator Resources team
Why is the Docs Site hosted on create.roblox.com/docs?
- A big initiative for us right now is to unify the different resources we offer Creators so that it’s easier to navigate between them. This includes pulling them into a shared domain, and we can’t wait to talk more about unification in the future!
What’s happening to the Developer Hub?
- Right now, it will continue to be accessible. The Engine API will no longer be updated on the Developer Hub, however, so it is recommended that you use Docs Site to look at the API reference. We will start forwarding DevHub links over the next few months, and eventually deprecate the Developer Hub entirely.
