Docsify – documentation site generator

Docsify is a documentation site generator.

Unlike GitBook, it does not generate static HTML files. Instead, it smartly loads and parses your Markdown files and displays them as a website.

Docsify is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • No statically built HTML files.
  • Simple and lightweight.
  • Smart full-text search plugin.
  • Multiple themes.
  • Deploy files to GitHub Pages, GitLab Pages or VPS.
  • Extends Markdown syntax to make your documents more readable.
  • Allows Vue content to be added directly to you markdown pages. This can greatly simplify working with data and adding reactivity to your site.
  • Useful plugin API.
  • Offline mode.
  • Compatible with IE11.
  • Supports Server-Side Rendering (SSR).
  • Support embedded files. You can embed these files as video, audio, iframes, or code blocks, and even Markdown files can even be embedded directly into the document.
