How is Doctave different?

Fully-featured documentation platform

Swagger UI is the original OpenAPI documentation solution that paved the way for other tools.

Doctave is a more modern approach to OpenAPI documentation, giving you a experience expected by today's developers.

Doctave also supports Markdown documentation, which means you don't need to wrangle multiple tools for your docs — Doctave is all you need.

If you want a fully-featured documentation platform, Doctave is a great choice.

You can document your API with OpenAPI specifications in the same tool as your Markdown docs.

Doctave makes collaboration a breeze by integrating with your software engineering workflow, and your readers will love your modern documentation site.

Open-source option

When should you use
Swagger UI?

Swagger UI can be embedded into other projects, which makes it a good option when you have an existing site and want to extend it with OpenAPI specifications.

It also has backwards compatibility with OpenAPI 2.0, unlike Doctave.
