As the efforts of the GitBook team are focused on the GitBook.com platform, the CLI is no longer under active development.
All content supported by the CLI are mostly supported by our GitBook.com / GitHub integration.
Content hosted on the legacy.gitbook.com will continue working until further notice. For differences with the new vesion, check out our documentation.
Complete documentation is available at toolchain.gitbook.com.
GitBook can be used either on your computer for building local books or on legacy.gitbook.com for hosting them. To get started, check out the installation instructions in the documentation.
GitBook can be used to create book, public documentation, enterprise manual, thesis, research papers, etc.
You can find a list of real-world examples in the documentation.
