Dux (/dʌks, dʊks/; plural: ducēs)

Dux is a converter from markdown to ready to deploy websites for documentation.

It is built to lead people easily through your documentation

The idea came from the fact that I always wanted a simple consistent design for my documentation. And when I saw that services like gitbook and more were changing to become payed services. I thought why not design my own.

Markdown makes documentation writting very easy and simple and this can also be used for simple documentation.

Things To Know

  • Each left menu item is equivalent to a .md file
  • The syntax highlight for inline code is js
  • If there is no Code Block design uses one main column
  • Generates a one page website in: duxOutput


A simple command line will let you convert your directory into a beautiful documentation website.

npm start <projectName> <projectDirectory>


npm start DuxApi md

You can also install the npm package globally:

npm install -g dux-documentation

You can then execute Dux with:

dux <projectName> <projectDirectory>
