  • Designed to unify both customer-facing and internal documentation
  • Organization through labels, spaces and categories

It's built with Golang + EmberJS and compiled down to a single executable binary that is available for Linux, Windows and Mac.

All you need to provide is your database -- PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server or any MySQL variant.
