Read the Docs

Create, host, and browse documentation.

What is this place?

Read the Docs hosts documentation, making it fully searchable and easy to find. You can import your docs using any major version control system, including Mercurial, Git, Subversion, and Bazaar. We support webhooks so your docs get built when you commit code. There's also support for versioning so you can build docs from tags and branches of your code in your repository.

Hosting documentation is free and simple, read our guide to get started!

Read the Docs is community supported. It depends on users like you to contribute to development, support, and operations. You can learn more about how to contribute in our docs. Thanks so much to our wonderful community team who helps us run the site. Read the Docs wouldn't be possible without them. Please consider joining today, as we always need more contributors to the project.

Read the Docs is funded by the community

Read the Docs is a huge resource that millions of developers rely on for software documentation. It would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, advertisers, and readers like you.

Hosting for the project is graciously provided by Rackspace.
