Description

What is Gatsby?

Transform plain text into dynamic blogs and websites using the latest web technologies. A React.js static site generator. Supports Markdown, HTML, and React.js pages out of the box. Easy to add support for additional files types. Leverages React's component model and React Router's "nested component hierarchy" to make templating incredibly powerful and intuitive.

What is Cactus?

Cactus makes setting up a website look easy. Choose a template for a blog, portfolio or single page and Cactus generates all files and folders to get you on your way.

What is DocGen?

DocGen is a command-line documentation tool for software products. It takes plain text or CommonMark (Markdown) as input, and generates both a static website and a PDF copy.
