I prefer to keep the documentation colocated; this ensures that the documentation is correct for any given commit, and makes deploying it much easier. I don't know if another static site generator will be able to overcome the home team advantage of GitHub Pages, for all Jekyll wouldn't be my first choice of framework.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
