5 great Jekyll documentation themes
02 June 2018
We’ve found the top 5 Jekyll themes for you to use for documentation, support and knowledge-base websites. Here they are:
Docs has everything you need to create a modern, clean documentation site. It works great out of the box, or as a solid base from which to style and match your brand – the design is really beautiful and minimal, and it includes some sleek animations. Definitely one of the best Jekyll documentation themes we’ve seen so far!
If you’re looking for something with a more bold design, then check out Desk – it helps you easily create a documentation site, with a good search feature and a clean, modern design. The organisation of this theme a particular strong point.
If you need something free, then Carte is a good place to start. It’s built specifically for API documentation and lets you create a really well organised site.
We recently added Doks to the directory, and it’s still one of our favorites. It has a really beautiful design and is made specifically for project documentation sites.
Documenter is a Jekyll site template for all kinds of digital product authors. You can make your support forum, documentation site or any knowledge base website by using it. It works great for a wide variety of support sites – and you could hide some of the sections you don’t need easily enough. Nice!
