I'm struggling to find any documentation for lightroom classic API. There used to be LUA documentation that is no longer accessible. most of the links redirect to the console

https://developer.adobe.com/console/home

and the docs are nowhere there. What am I missing? can someone point me to the LUA lightroom api docs?

thank you!

...and then click Lightroom Classic > View Downloads:

Then click "Download (7.5 MB)", not "Documentation":

In the downloaded SDK, the Programmers Guide (which is very good, though dated) is in the subfolder Manual > Lightroom Classic SDK Guide.pdf.  

 

The API reference documentation is rooted in the subfolder API Reference > index.htm.

 

Adobe makes finding the docs much harder than it needs to be.

right. I missed the entry at the very top of the page. I was only looking at this one on the main page that took me back in a loop.

thank you.

"right. I missed the entry at the very top of the page. I was only looking at this one on the main page that took me back in a loop."

 

I detest developer.adobe.com -- I go there a couple times a year to grab the latest SDK, forget about the precise path to the SDK, and end up going in a loop too.  Too much HTML eye candy and too little thought about making the information accessible.
