How is Doctave different from ReadMe?
ReadMe is a well-established documentation platform. If you want a WYSIWYG experience and cloud based management, it's a great option.
But for technical teams, it may not be the best option.
ReadMe is not built for docs-as-code. If you want to manage your documentation using a modern Git-based collaboration workflow, ReadMe falls short.
With Doctave, you get the best of both worlds.
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.
With Doctave you get preview environments automatically for each change, and can release your documentation from CI/CD.
Doctave is designed for engineering teams that want to employ docs-as-code for world-class technical documentation.
Analytics and Feedback

Markdown and OpenAPI support
Doctave supports Markdown for written guides, and OpenAPI for API reference documentation.

Markdown is no DITA. But with Doctave, you can create reusable and parameterized snippets of Markdown content.
Doctave uses the Liquid template language, which lets you create both Markdown and HTML partials that can be reused across your project.
Version your documentation in Git branches, like your code!
Doctave’s hosting platform can deploy each version independently.
Your docs are dark mode enabled by default and default to the reader’s preference automatically.
