Read the Docs: Documentation Simplified
Read the Docs simplifies software documentation by building, versioning, and hosting of your docs, automatically. Think of it as Continuous Documentation.
Never out of sync 🔄
Whenever you push code to your favorite version control system, whether that is Git, Mercurial, Bazaar, or Subversion, Read the Docs will automatically build your docs so your code and documentation are always up-to-date. Read more about VCS Integrations.
Multiple versions 🗂️
Read the Docs can host and build multiple versions of your docs so having a 1.0 version of your docs and a 2.0 version of your docs is as easy as having a separate branch or tag in your version control system. Read more about Versioned Documentation.
