Megadoc is a documentation generator that is able to scan and analyze documentation found in different sources and present them in a coherent UI. Example sources include source-files like JavaScript or Lua modules, Markdown documents, and Ruby on Rails APIs.


  • Write anywhere: docs may live inside the main codebase (in the form of comment blocks) or outside (like text or markdown files) - the tool shouldn't care.
  • Aggregate, linkable docs: the ability to inter-link documents regardless of the source, like pointing to a JavaScript module from a Markdown article.
  • Simple deployment model: .html files that require no webserver to power, so that one can easily host the docs anywhere (like on GitHub Pages, a local browser session, or any static server.)

Getting started
