    There are also many open source generators out there that are worth mentioning: MkDocs and Docusaurus to name a couple popular ones. If you need something more customizable, Jekyll and Hugo are good options. Generic static site generators however tend to add a lot of complexity so we'd recommend going for something more light-weight.
  • Keeping Documentation Debt At Bay & Clients Happy | 2021-09-09
    After jumping from documentation generator to generator, we finally settled on Docusaurus. It introduced a build step again similar to Hugo, but we found that the trade off was worth it, as Docusaurus brought a bunch of really nice features with it. Since everything was just React under the hood that could be customized, we naturally gravitated to it as we already had React experience.

    React.js was created with Docusaurus AFAIK (though I see some Gatsby specific code previously). There is also Docz also powered by Gatsby and supports MDX (both do).
  • My Docusaurus Pros and Cons List | 2021-09-01
    I mention this because I wasn't in my role (or at this company) when the engineers decided to move forward with Docusaurus, a React-based documentation framework. I think the choice they made was reasonable, probably the choice I would have made if I was in their shoes, but not the choice I would have likely made today.
  • Does anyone have reccomendations for a Javascript library to manage our software documentation? More info inside. | 2021-08-31
    There are lots of good solutions here. Docusaurus is one I prefer because the docs are written in markdown, but extensible with React, and can be versioned. However, you have to implement your site within the Docusaurus framework instead of embedding it into an existing site. (I can't find any documentation on inverting things like that, at least.)

    The project aims at creating and deploying a user friendly, interactive and accessible website for PEcAn Project. PEcAn Project's website consisted of html pages, bookdown and pkgdown pages being rendered separately. In this project, all separate sections have been integrated as a consistent, modern website with elegant UI with the help of Docusaurus 2, a static site generator. This project has been created as a part of GSoC'21.
  • Any good site/app to make my documentation? | 2021-07-11
    Docusaurus 2 looks like a got fit. Although it is still beta.

    Ah, that makes sense! We use primarily because dbt uses it as well. :)

    It would be great if we can team up to build an open specification for the metric definitions though.

    Built on Docusaurus I believe, I like's Vector documentation for their use of SVG[1] graphics[2] that help visually describe a lot of their concepts. I like their format for attribute definitions[3] as it's not always easy adding all the specific details elegantly to an attribute and most people just default to an unstyled table.

    The basic functionality that I'm looking for are for people to login and search for topics, view the documentation, check they've read them. Do you guys know of any such system that I can self-host in my system and share with them? I've been looking at sites like and
