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 DocPad?

Empower your website frontends with layouts, meta-data, pre-processors (markdown, jade, coffeescript, etc.), partials, skeletons, file watching, querying, and an amazing plugin system. DocPad will streamline your web development process allowing you to craft full-featured websites quicker than ever before.

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.
