Getting Started

The docs.page project reads files directly from your GitHub repository. To get started:

  1. Create a docs directory to any public GitHub repository.
  2. Create an index.mdx file.
  3. Add some Markdown content.
  4. View your documentation.

The documentation is available by providing the repositories owner and name after the domain:

// https://github.com/acme/awesome-project

Using our CLI tool#

To make setting up docs.page with your project as smooth and as seemless as possible, we've added a small CLI tool, @docs.page/init .

If you have node and npm installed locally you can cd to the root of your project and run the command

npx @docs.page/init

This will add a docs.json, a docs directory, and a couple of mdx files to get you started.

From there you can preview your documentation by visiting docs.page/preview, and selecting your root directory for preview.

Once you're happy with your documentation you can push changes to your Github repository and your documentation site will be ready to visit!

Working with Markdown#

The project supports rendering all GitHub-flavored Markdown.

Under the hood, MDX is enabled which allows the use of Custom Components. Each Markdown page also supports Frontmatter, allowing you to customize the metadata of each specific page.

Configuring your documentation#

By default, docs.page will render a single page with default configuration options. Although there is nothing wrong with this, you can further enhance the functionality of the generated documentation by creating a docs.json file at the root of your repository:

  "name": "Awesome Project",
  "theme": "#ab47bc",
  "favicon": "/assets/favicon.ico",
  "logo": "https://mycdn.com/awesome-logo.png",
  "docsearch": {
    "appId": "...",
    "apiKey": "...",
    "indexName": "..."

Once committed, docs.page will first read the configuration and update the website. To learn more about the available configuration options, view the documentation.
