the aesthetic certainly leaves something to be desired O_O

I guess it's just personal preference but Java has always been my favorite. I don't need a fancy design and word clouds etc. Furthermore, the Java documentation has a very high level of completeness, consistency, and all-around quality.

Cool one with readily usable code snippets & data, esp if you are logged in: https://apidocs.chargebee.com/docs/api/subscriptions?lang=cu...

ooo I like this. definitely going to be building usable code snippets customized for logged-in users! thanks!!

Stripe's is pretty clean and easy to follow: https://stripe.com/docs

Also I like Mailgun's: http://documentation.mailgun.net/

Totally agree.

Github's is great: http://developer.github.com/v3/

python official docs and flask docs

Mathematica's documentation. It has live editable examples built in similar to the man pages.
