    We’re scratching our own itch by making all developer documentation a joy to use!

    Everyone has felt the pains of poor developer documentation. It causes headaches for makers and users, and this frustration is what ultimately led us to build ReadMe. In fact, the company started when our founder, Gregory Koberger, was retreating in Costa Rica. He was supposed to be building another company with his friends, but kept finding himself reimplementing ReadMe’s functionality whenever he had to write documentation. This was in 2014… and we’ve been building ever since.

    We love what we do because it’s so much more than just docs. We’re providing tools for teams to create and manage beautiful documentation with ease. We give customers the ability to login their users via JWT, we support custom variables to create personalized guides, and we have an interactive API Explorer, which allows users to try out APIs in the browser (check out our demo site!).

    Documentation edits normally take days to push through, but companies can push out updates in seconds using ReadMe. Technical writers don’t need to learn how to use XML data models or make GitHub pull requests to author content anymore - they can simply make edits in our dash and save. For larger companies with stricter review processes, we have the suggested edits workflow to iterate on updates and deploy when they’re ready.
