How RA Documentation Works

This RetroAchievements Documentation project puts together the guides, tutorials, tips and tricks about RetroAchievements development and any other interesting information for the community.

Before this project started the knowledge about cheevos development was scattered in several forum posts at, making the learning experience harder for a novice developer. This project started by converting material from those forum posts to here, but ordered in a somewhat more coherent sequence.

The RetroAchievements Documentation is divided into two parts:

  1. RetroAchievements wiki
  2. RetroAchievements docs

The wiki is where these documents are created and edited. Anyone (with a github account) is able to edit the wiki's content. Then, if you have something to share, please edit the wiki!

The RetroAchievements docs website has (almost) the same content as the wiki, but with a more pleasant look. The content of this website is generated by its maintainers using the wiki's content as input.

When a change is made in the wiki this change is NOT instantaneously reflected in the docs. The conversion is performed by a maintainer from time to time.
