A static website generator based on Asciidoctor sources.

Project description


KB4IT is a static website generator based on Asciidoctor sources mainly for technical documentation purposes.


  • The main aim is to provide an easy way to write technical documentation.
  • Don’t care about the formatting and focus on the contents.
  • To allow teams to manage their knowledge database easily.
  • Do not depend on third software products like word processors or complex web applications.



  • Writing documentation: Documents must be in Asciidoctor format which is easy to learn.
  • Finding documents: Once a document is converted to html, properties can be browsed. Moreover, property pages have filters and a search entry to filter by title.
  • Publishing your repository: all necessary files are inside a directory. Browse it or copy it to your web server.
  • Serverless: There is no need for a web server. Of course, you can use one if you please.
  • Smart compiling: Only those documents added or modified are compiled.


  • No online editor: At this moment, KB4IT doesn’t include any online editor. You must create or edit your documents with your preferred editor.
  • No dynamic search: KB4IT was developed to be as simple as possible. No dependencies at all excepting Asciidoctor (as text processor and publishing toolchain) and Python (the programming language used).
