About MkDocs

MkDocs is a fast, simple and downright gorgeous static site generator that’s geared towards building project documentation. Documentation source files are written in Markdown, and configured with a single YAML configuration file.

MkDocs builds completely static HTML sites that you can host on GitHub pages, Amazon S3, or anywhere else you choose. There’s a stack of good looking themes available for MkDocs. The built-in dev-server allows you to preview your documentation as you’re writing it. It will even auto-reload and refresh your browser whenever you save your changes. Get your project documentation looking just the way you want it by customizing the theme and/or installing some plugins.
