Fully-featured documentation platform

How is Doctave different?

Docusaurus can be a great choice to build a documentation site in for many teams.

But it isn't for everyone.

Docusaurus expects you to have a solid understanding of JavaScript/React in order to properly configure and customise it. You have to manage hosting yourself. You also have to set up integrations for search, analytics, and user feedback.

Docusaurus also does not support OpenAPI documentation without additional plugins.

With Doctave, everything is built in.

No need to configure Algolia or Google Tag Manager. Get the benefits of a Git-based docs-as-code workflow, without configuring hosting and plugins yourself.
