Features

  • It's just Markdown — write your technical documentation in plain Markdown – no need to know HTML, JavaScript, or CSS. Material for MkDocs will do the heavy lifting and convert your writing to a beautiful and functional website.

  • Responsive by design — built from the ground up to work on all sorts of devices – from mobile phones to widescreens. The underlying fluid layout will always adapt perfectly to the available screen space.

  • Static, yet searchable — almost magically, your technical documentation website will be searchable without any further ado. Material for MkDocs comes with built-in search – no server needed – that will instantly answer your users' queries.

  • Many configuration options — change the color palette, font families, language, icons, favicon and logo. Add a source repository link, links to your social profiles, Google Analytics and Disqus - all with a few lines of code.

  • Truly international — thanks to many contributors, Material for MkDocs includes translations for more than 40 languages and offers full native RTL (right-to-left) support for languages such as Arabic, Persian (Farsi) and Hebrew.

  • Accessible — Material for MkDocs provides extensible keyboard navigation and semantic markup including role attributes and landmarks. Furthermore, the layout is entirely based on

    rem
    values, respecting the user's default font size.
  • Beyond GitHub Markdown — integrates natively with Python Markdown Extensions, offering additional elements like callouts, tabbed content containers, mathematical formulas, critic markup, task lists, and emojis.

  • Modern architecture — Material for MkDocs's underlying codebase is built with TypeScript, RxJS, and SCSS, and is compiled with Webpack, bringing excellent possibilities for theme extension and customization.

Material for MkDocs uses the sponsorware release strategy, which means that new features are first exclusively released to sponsors as part of Material for MkDocs Insiders. Read on to learn how sponsorship works, and how you can become a sponsor.
