Project documentation with Markdown

PyPI Version Build Status Coverage Status

MkDocs is a fast, simple and downright gorgeous static site generator that's geared towards building project documentation. Documentation source files are written in Markdown, and configured with a single YAML configuration file. It is designed to be easy to use and can be extended with third-party themes, plugins, and Markdown extensions.

Please see the Documentation for an introductory tutorial and a full user guide.


  • Build static HTML files from Markdown files.
  • Use Plugins and Markdown Extensions to enhance MkDocs.
  • Use the built-in themes, third party themes or create your own.
  • Publish your documentation anywhere that static files can be served.
  • Much more!
