Follow me on twitter. I share quick tips, my reading list and also about free workshop and webinars around web and mobile development everyday.

Every engineering team face problem of where to maintain documentation once team grows. We at Jobbatical faced similar problem and finally comes to a working solution.

What is Docusaurus?

Docusaurus is an open source by facebook. It is written in React and easily extended to create similar documents like react docs.

How it helps

  • Centralized documentation for your team
  • Easy setup, better readability and linking (same as React docs ❤️)
  • Versioning is easy with multiple contributors
  • Markdown support to create content
  • Built using React (can be extended based on need)
  • Document search (algolia is also supported for more advanced search capabilities)
# Getting started
npm install --global docusaurus-init
cd documentation-folder

Hope this helps if someone is looking for better centralized documentation need for the company or development team in general 😇
