Particle Documentation System

Hi Everyone,

Particle uses Metalsmith to generate its documentation site from the markdown-based source files on Github. I’m interested in how this works, because other open source projects could follow suit for their own documentation.


  • Does Particle host the Metalsmith application on Github pages or Heroku or some other site?
  • Or, how can I replicate this?

The Metalsmith Github issues page shows that their documentation isn’t developed enough to help new users.
