Both front and back ends of docsify are suitable for use, no nodejs or any other runtime/compilation tools are needed, only html + markdown

Thank you for your feedback.
Regarding the search, can you provide more information?
I wonder how the default search feature manages a large index (1k pages or more).

Currently I have not used docsify to build a large online document (the company has its own wiki system), but the largest online document I have built using it is zhuyanxue.liuli.moe/#/, which contains 404 files , 32878 words, no major problems have been encountered in the search

In addition, you don’t seem to mention hexo/hugo. As far as I know, the official website of vue.js is built using hexo

Noted.
I will try hexo/hugo - Ty!
The Lighthouse score for Docsify looks a little bit lower than MkDocs (just run it on your deployment).
Any tweaks to improve the score?

Performance is difficult to become a decisive factor in most application scenarios, especially in this era when hardware is worthless. . .

I'm ok with accessing and consume good documentation rendered by a SPA but Google is the bad guy in this equation.
Anyway, .. this is not a show stopper, for me at least, to use Docsify.

Thanks again for your time!
