Docs.ros2.org is being retired

As part of an ongoing effort to centralize the ROS 2 documentation, we are going to retire the site https://docs.ros2.org . The content that is hosted there will be (some already has been) moved to https://docs.ros.org .

Early next week we’ll switch the DNS entry that points to docs.ros2.org to point to another host. Redirects have been setup so that any bookmarks or links to https://docs.ros2.org should continue to work. There will be a bit of downtime on docs.ros2.org when we do the switch, but it should be less than 24 hours.

I’ll update this thread once the DNS switch happens. If you notice any problems accessing https://docs.ros2.org (or https://docs.ros.org) after the switch, please reply to this thread and we will look into it.

I am so excited.

OK, the initial move has been done. Any of the top-level content that used to be hosted on docs.ros2.org is now hosted on docs.ros.org, and redirects should happen automatically. We are still hosting the older API documentation on docs.ros2.org for now, but that will also eventually be moved.

If you see any trouble with docs.ros2.org, please respond to this thread and we’ll look into it.

For a better user experience, shouldn’t we put an index page at the root of https://docs.ros.org/ directing users to the various content? Right now it just empties to a single folder called “en”

Yes, absolutely. It’s on my TODO list before we go live with the transition of https://index.ros.org/doc/ros2 over to https://docs.ros.org (which is the next step in the plan). I have to figure out how that page should look since docs.ros.org serves both ROS 1 and ROS 2 now.

It’s actually quite convenient to be able to browse the different directories on that host.

Could that access perhaps be kept possible?
