Top 23 JavaScript Documentation Projects

  • GitHub repo docsify

    🃏 A magical documentation site generator.

    Project mention: Recomendations to build a learning platform for a small company? | | 2022-01-11

    After reading your post again and this comment, I don't think Jekyll is the best choice. Something like GitBook, MkDocs, or Docsify would be a better solution as they let you control the organization and flow much better.

  • GitHub repo electron-vue

    An Electron & Vue.js quick start boilerplate with vue-cli scaffolding, common Vue plugins, electron-packager/electron-builder, unit/e2e testing, vue-devtools, and webpack.

    Project mention: Building an Electron App with VueJS and Vite | | 2021-12-15

    It appears electron-vue, the leading Github repository that combines VueJS and Electron hasn't had a commit since April 21, 2021. Prior to the April 21st commits, it hasn't had serious contribution activity since December 3rd, 2019 and before that October 23, 2018.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo JSDoc

    An API documentation generator for JavaScript.

    Project mention: Code for People, Not for Machines - A Glimps into my Newest Book | | 2022-01-18

    Notice how the tooltips generated by the same code differ when a properly formatted comment is added into the mix. This is JavaScript code and the comments are following JSDocs standards. These standards tell you how to format your comments with a structure that a machine can then parse and get useful information out of. You clearly identify things such as variable types and names, return types, descriptions, and more, and then, in our case, the IDE parses it and show an informative tooltip.

    Project mention: API Documentation Made Easy | | 2021-09-08

  • GitHub repo dox

  • GitHub repo Documize

    Modern Confluence alternative designed for internal & external docs, built with Golang + EmberJS (by documize)

    Project mention: Anyone out there using DOCUMIZE? | | 2021-11-17

    The Documize Community Github description states that content PDF export is a feature of the Community+ edition, which is available for download on their download page here as opposed to the Github release builds. If you indeed have more than 10 users, then you can't use Community+, so you won't have the ability to natively export content as PDF.

  • GitHub repo styledocco

    Automatically generate a style guide from your stylesheets.

  • GitHub repo widdershins

    OpenAPI / Swagger, AsyncAPI & Semoasa definitions to (re)Slate compatible markdown (by Mermade)

    Project mention: Ask HN: Is OpenAPI Documentation Superior? | | 2021-03-25

    You can do both. Widdershins converts an OpenAPI definition to the markdown format used by Slatedocs.

  • GitHub repo rabbitmq-website

    RabbitMQ website and documentation guides

  • GitHub repo fastify-swagger

    Swagger documentation generator for Fastify

    Project mention: How do you write your API documentation? Any self-hosted utilities you'd recommend? | | 2021-05-21

    On the Node.js framework side of things, Fastify has support for Swagger with the fastify-swagger plugin.

  • GitHub repo Gitdown

    GitHub markdown preprocessor.

  • GitHub repo generator

    Use your AsyncAPI definition to generate literally anything. Markdown documentation, Node.js code, HTML documentation, anything!

    Project mention: Getting Started with CloudEvents and AsyncAPI | | 2021-09-16

    This can be improved and extended overtime, especially because of the way the generator is designed, enabling extensibility so we can have templates for many other languages that support more protocols, etc. For example, there is only a NATS generator for .NET Core... but perhaps in the future there could be more protocols supported for .NET Core and examples built for Azure 😃.

  • GitHub repo documentation
