Installation

This is this installation guide for Rojo 0.5.x.

Overview

Rojo has two components:

  • The command line interface (CLI)
  • The Roblox Studio plugin

Info

It's important that your installed version of the plugin and CLI are compatible.

The plugin will show errors in the Roblox Studio output window if there is a version mismatch.

Visual Studio Code Extension

If you use Visual Studio Code, you can install the Rojo VS Code extension, which will install both halves of Rojo for you. It even has a nifty UI to sync files and start/stop the Rojo server!

Installing the CLI

Installing from GitHub

If you're on Windows, there are pre-built binaries available from Rojo's GitHub Releases page.

The Rojo CLI must be run from the command line, like Terminal.app on MacOS or cmd.exe on Windows. It's recommended that you put the Rojo CLI executable on your PATH to make this easier.

Installing from Cargo

If you have Rust installed, the easiest way to get Rojo is with Cargo!

To install the latest 0.5.x release, use:

cargo install rojo

If you're upgrading from a previous version of Rojo, you may need to pass --force to tell Cargo to overwrite your existing version.

Installing the Plugin

Installing from GitHub

The Rojo Roblox Studio plugin is available from Rojo's GitHub Releases page.

Download the attached rbxm file and put it into your Roblox Studio plugins folder. You can find that folder by pressing Plugins Folder from your Plugins toolbar in Roblox Studio:

'Plugins Folder' button in Roblox Studio

Installing from Roblox.com

Visit Rojo's Roblox.com Plugin page in Roblox Studio and press Install.
