Show HN: Gitdocs a Platform for Documentation
1 point by dbetteridge 9 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 6 comments
Hi HN!

During lockdown i've been working on building Gitdocs


It offers a simple interface for extracting your documentation from git (github/azure devops currently supported) and making them easily shareable outside your immediate team or organisation.

Still in very early beta, so I'm looking for feedback and suggestions for improvement alongside why this might be a terrible idea.

Be gentle as its currently running on a small VPS

Future plans include pdf and html export functionality and search.


- There will be bugs -

Clicked App, and then the back button icon which does not work as expected. Keeps trying to load https://gitdocs.page/login. Home button works. 77.0.1 (64-bit)

All I see is some screenshots and that's about it. Where is the info, the content that tells me more? I'm I missing something?

That's my bad on the first one, you should now see an error page asking you to login when clicking App and logged-out. Hitting back will take you back to the homepage.

For the second, there should be some intro text. But proper copy is on my TODO list

An unexpected error has occurred :-/

Can I ask what steps you took and arrived at the error?

I've tried to cover bases with tests where I can but i'm sure i've missed some

Just open the link in Firefox, a flash of text "a document sharing ... ", then it's gone and the error message displays. I've enabled js for the site.

Thanks! I'll take another look.

Which version of Firefox?

Ive tested using 78.0b9 (64-bit) Developer edition and 77.0.1 (64-bit) and not seeing the same.
