Put Your Pen to the Paper
Write documentation alongside your code, reflecting changes to your code with updates to your documentation. Tight coupling of code and docs lowers the bar for developers and technical writers to maintain documentation.
Read the Docs provides the ability to write prose documentation that links to referential or API documentation, including other projects hosted in your organization, or open source projects hosted on readthedocs.org.
- reStructuredText support
- Markdown support
- Sphinx generated documentation
Your documentation is rebuilt with each new commit to your repository. We consider this Continuous Documentation. It allows for process to be added to your development workflow to ensure your documentation is consistently receiving the attention it deserves.
Documentation is hosted by each version or branch of your software, so that your documentation always reflects the software you support. Your documentation can now evolve alongside your software.
- Pull from Github
- Pull from Bitbucket

Documentation You'll Use
Great documentation exists at the intersection of collecting and sharing information. Having the right tools can facilitate writing, which is the first step to increasing the value of your documentation. When you have documentation worth reading, it's still important to have the correct tools to find and use what your wrote.
With all your documentation in one spot, information can link projects together and everything is searchable and easily discoverable.
