Decisions about VuePress

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose VuePress in their tech stack.

Nikolaj Ivancic
Needs advice

I want to build a documentation tool - functionally equivalent to MkDocs. The initial choice ought to be VuePress - but I know of at least one respectable developer who started with VuePress and switched to Nuxt.js. A rich set of "themes" is a plus and all documents ought to be in Markdown.

Any opinions?
