  • Twelve Amazing Free Hugo Documentation Themes
    14 projects | dev.to | 16 May 2022
    DocuAPI is a multilingual API documentation theme for Hugo created and maintained by Bjørn Erik Pedersen, the lead maintainer and co-creator of Hugo itself. It’s built on top of the Slate API docs generator, which itself was inspired by Stripe’s and PayPal’s API docs. The JavaScript section of DocuAPI has been rewritten from Jquery to AlpineJS.​​​​​​

    If you are going to use Slate from the console you need to install it, along with all its prerequisites, as described here. In Ubuntu you can execute the commands:

  • What would you like to see Stripe improve on iOS?

    I'm using Slate right now which is a common recommendation for Stripe-like documentation, but obviously it's not the same.
  • Favorite API Documentation UI/UX

    While not as visually impressive with flashy graphics and UI elements, Twilio's documentation has similar Stripe vibes as I believe it's built on Slate which is about as close to Stripe's framework as you can get. I like the theme used[4] in the code sample section as it's a nice break from the standard colors and it's easy on the eyes.
  • Best toolset/workflow for prototyping and iterating an API?
    6 projects | reddit.com/r/node | 18 May 2021
    That's about the API design and specification. Now let's turn our attention to API UIs for visualisation and interaction. API UIs are useful for other people to easily understand your API. Again, quite a variety of choices in this area, but the most common are Swagger UI and Redoc. Lots of frameworks and tools will allow you to render the Swagger or Redoc UI of an OpenAPI spec from the specification document, such as Swagger's editor. And if you're comfortable enough with JavaScript, you can do the rendering yourself using the npm package. A fancier UI is Slate. I don't know whether Slate will automatically generate code samples in every popular language, but it does allow you to write the samples yourself. There're various tools that render a Slate UI from an OpenAPI specification. I believe Postman also allows you to generate a fancy UI.
  • Best platform for writing api docs?

    For API-specific docs I use Slate as I like the code sample section off to the right. I converted our previous severely lacking Swagger setup to a full-featured framework with Slate that has significantly reduced the number of support emails regarding API questions.
  • 21 tools to document your Python project

    Slate and friends. The next step towards a more controlled evolution of the API documentation is a tool like Slate and the API documentation in git. It's still text that you need to write manually in Markdown, but Slate provides a structure, a slick renderer, and lets you publish your API as an independent website.
