Over the past 6 or so months I have been working on a new project. It started as a way to dive into Elixir and the Phoenix framework but ended up being (in my opinion) a fully fledged product.

The idea was to provide a hosted documentation service that was simple, affordable and easy to use. During my work on Statusy, I spent a great deal of time trying to find a decent product that 1) didn't cost a ton of money (a lot of options were easily $50+ a month for essentially a static site), 2) didn't require a ton of setup and 3) was mostly hands off. I couldn't find such a product, so I began working on Docuie.

Docuie allows you to create documentation projects as well as pages and headings to create a hierarchy for your users. It has a WYSIWYG editor, supporting both point-and-click style writing and full HTML editing if you wish to take that route. Docuie supports free domains in addition to custom domains on the higher packages. Pricing is based around the features and number of seats you need, the cheapest plan starts at just $10 per month and gives you a fully featured product.

In addition, one thing we did with Statusy that I really enjoyed was offering free service to open source projects, so I will be continuing this with Docuie. If you run an open source project (or a charity of some sort) please reach out to me if you are interested in getting set up on Docuie.

You can view an example of the product through Docuie's own documentation site here:

Thanks for reading, I hope you will give it a shot if you are in the market for a documentation service.
