Create living style guides using Markdown or React


Catalog lets you create beautiful living style guides quickly and easily.

Content is written in Markdown so you can focus on documenting your components.

The standalone version is completely dependency free, making it trivial to integrate Catalog into your application.

Catalog can also be directly integrated into a React app to document components directly.

Read Catalog's documentation (built with Catalog!) to find out more.

Will be available once v2.0.0 is released. In the meanwhile you can use the prerelease builds.
