Hey,

the server that hosts robofab.com has to be retired.

I will move the documentation as it is to a new host.

I think most users are now using the git version and I've been told even the FontLabs can use it so I intend to kill http://download.robofab.com

I don't have time to rebuild documentation for the current FL Fab and NoneLab Fab.

Any comments?
Erik

Hi Eric,
The easiest thing to do if you want to keep a backup: Copy/Pasting and saving as .md files in some github folder.

Cheers,
Pablo

If you create a gh-pages branch of the Github robofab repo, you could put the entire static HTML docs there and have it instantly accessible as http://robofab.github.io/ — and even configure the robofab.com DNS to use that. Basically, the gh-pages branch of Github is a free webhosting service for static html.

hi Erik,

I've ported the RoboFab Docs to Sphinx some time ago, see:

http://robodocs.info/roboFabDocs/source/index.html

groeten, Gustavo

Hi Gustavo,

I've linked to the site, thanks.

But note that the robofab.org server is going away. That means that all these download links will be unavailable:
http://www.robodocs.info/roboFabDocs/source/intro/download.html
I really don't want to continue to host them, it's old junk for old FontLab, no one needs them.

Thanks!
Erik

hello Erik,

I've removed the download links from the docs, and tweaked the installation notes accordingly:

https://github.com/roboDocs/roboFabDocs/blob/master/source/intro/download.rst
https://github.com/roboDocs/roboFabDocs/blob/master/source/intro/install.rst

There's now also a RoboFab Docs RoboFont extension, with the original colourful theme:

https://github.com/roboDocs/roboFabDocsExtension

I hope to update RoboDocs.info later this week.

please let me know if you find any errors.

all the best, Gustavo
