Read the Docs: documentation simplified
Read the Docs simplifies software documentation by building, versioning, and hosting of your docs, automatically. This enables many “docs like code” workflows, keeping your code & documentation as close as possible.
- Never out of sync 🔄
Whenever you push code to your favorite version control system, whether that is Git or Mercurial, Read the Docs will automatically build your docs so your code and documentation are always up-to-date. Read more about Continuous Documentation Deployment.
- 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.
- Open Source and User Focused 💓

Read the Docs Community hosts documentation for over 100,000 large and small open source projects, in almost every human and computer language.
