How is Doctave different from Docusaurus?

Docusaurus is a great choice for getting started with docs-as-code quickly, but has some important downsides:

In Docusaurus, versioning has to be done in one workspace, leading to duplicate content and build times that can grow to over 30 minutes in large projects. Docusaurus does not have native OpenAPI support, causing many companies to host their API references on separate domains entirely.

Doctave is a lightning-fast documentation generator and hosting platform all in one

Doctave's documentation sites look clean and modern out of the box, with analytics, user feedback, Markdown and OpenAPI support built in.

You can add Doctave to your CI/CD pipeline with one line, and Doctave will create preview environments automatically for each change.

No more slow builds, buggy plugins, or broken development environments.
