Discussion on: What are you using for your documentation?

Confluence has been for a long time, a lot of people are using it and it has all kind of information.

Maybe a little more about what we are trying to achieve (or at least some of the most important pieces) so that it can be more understandable why Confluence is not the best thing for us:

  • We would like to have the news docs in more structured way which will be more related to the project itself, not having everything in there.
  • From our backend we got JSON API documentation which is going to be presented in the new docs in a prettier way than JSON format.
  • We want to have some kind of integration with our components in Storybook.

This being the case, Confluence doesn’t seem like the best place to put everything. And I believe it is not possible to have all of the needed things in there to be honest.
