PentaBAR: Launch a documentation website in a flash, with Docusaurus

Docusaurus tells a story that mirrors the famous Pareto Principle, the idea that 80% of effects come from 20% of causes. So, along those lines, you can either spend weeks working on a custom documentation solution on top of Gatsby or Next.js, or use this tool and get a good result in a few minutes!

You can think of Docusaurus as a solution somewhat in between “building your own stack” and “using a doc SaaS,” – an open-source tool designed to be used by React developers, technical documentation creators, researchers or any other coders dabbling with open-source libraries.
