5 great Jekyll documentation themes

We’ve found the top 5 Jekyll themes for you to use for documentation, support and knowledge-base websites. Here they are:



Responsive documentation Jekyll theme

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!



Knowledge base & FAQ Jekyll theme

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.



An API documentation theme

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.



Project documentation Jekyll theme

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.



Support, knowledgebase + documentation theme

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!
