Vuepress – minimalistic Vue-powered static site generator

VuePress is composed of two parts: a minimalistic static site generator with a Vue-powered theming system and Plugin API, and a default theme optimized for writing technical documentation. It was created to support the documentation needs of Vue’s own sub projects.

Each page generated by VuePress has its own pre-rendered static HTML, providing great loading performance and is SEO-friendly. Yet, once the page is loaded, Vue takes over the static content and turns it into a full Single-Page Application (SPA). Extra pages are fetched on demand as the user navigates around the site.

VuePress is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Minimal setup with markdown-centered project structure helps you focus on writing.
  • Vue-powered – enjoy the dev experience of Vue + webpack, use Vue components in markdown, and develop custom themes with Vue.
  • Generates pre-rendered static HTML for each page, and runs as an SPA once a page is loaded.
  • Built-in Markdown extensions
  • Default theme:
    • Responsive layout.
    • Optional Homepage.
    • Simple out-of-the-box header-based search.
    • Algolia Search.
    • Customizable navbar and sidebar.
    • Auto-generated GitHub link and page edit links.
    • PWA: Popup UI to refresh contents.
    • Last Updated.
    • Multi-Language Support.
  • Plugins:
    • Powerful Plugin API.
    • Blog Plugin.
    • Search Plugin.
