Project Building

Argon allows you to build your project into Roblox binary (rbxl / rbxm) or XML (rbxlx / rbxmx) file. This is extremely useful when:

  • You want to build you own plugin or model
  • You want to share your project with others
  • You want to publish your project to Roblox or just open it in Roblox Studio

To build your project you have to run Argon Build command:

  • Read more here if you use CLI
  • Read more here if you use VS Code

When building plugin you can make it reload automatically every time you update its code and see how it changes in Roblox Studio in real time! To do that make sure:

  • you have Reload plugins on file changed setting enabled in Roblox Studio > File > Studio Settings > Directories
  • you use --plugin option (CLI) or Build plugin setting (VS Code)
