Outside of Swift, I use RetypeApp and they have a lot of inbuilt functionality. You can then generate your output directory on build, and use those HTML files as is.

Retype is the nicest one I’ve come across in my search! Has a built in table of contents, pretty easy to create (entirely using markdown) and great support for emojis, math, containers, multi tab info panels, and proper dropdown panels.

I recently set up something with https://retype.com/ and it's quite good.
Retype: A self-hosted and free alternative to gitbook
BookStack looks interesting, but certainly one massive advantage Retype has is just installation. I can have Retype installed, my website built, and running in a browser in a 10 seconds.
With Retype, your content source are simple Markdown `.md` text files. BookStack stores your data in a database, and in order to host a website you need a PHP webserver, Maria DB, etc.
A Retype generated website can be hosted for free using GitHub Pages. The retype.com website is hosted on GitHub Pages, see https://github.com/retypeapp/retype.
Hope this helps.
One will want to be aware of the licensing for this: https://github.com/retypeapp/retype/blob/v2.2.0/LICENSE.md
"Free" as in beer, it seems
Retype builds directly off Markdown files, which you can store anywhere, including GitHub. The retype.com website is built directly from a GitHub repo, see https://github.com/retypeapp/retype
The retype.com website is also hosted on GitHub Pages. Any change that is committed to the GitHub repo will trigger the website to be rebuilt by Retype using GitHub Actions, see https://retype.com/hosting/github-pages/.
Hope this helps clarify that Retype is even more tightly integrated with GitHub, or any other source management system. You have complete control and ownership of your source content files.
While gitbook does wrap the branching/merging process in a UI that is digestible by non-developers, Retype is far more powerful because you actually use GitHub (or GitLab). You have the full power of GitHub, including branching, pull-requests, issues, reviews, automation, authentication, and everything else.
For example, here's the repo for the retype.com website, see https://github.com/retypeapp/retype
The entire website is built from simple Markdown text files.
