MkDocs is a fast, simple and downright gorgeous static site generator that's geared towards building project documentation. Documentation source files are written in Markdown, and configured with a single YAML configuration file.


  • Host anywhere: MkDocs builds completely static HTML sites that you can host on GitHub pages, Amazon S3, or anywhere else you choose.
  • Great themes available: There's a stack of good looking themes available for MkDocs. Choose between the built in themes: mkdocs and readthedocs, select one of the 3rd party themes in the MkDocs wiki, or build your own.
  • Preview your site as you work: The built-in dev-server allows you to preview your documentation as you're writing it. It will even auto-reload and refresh your browser whenever you save your changes.
  • Easy to customize: Get your project documentation looking just the way you want it by customizing the theme.

To install MkDocs, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install mkdocs

To upgrade MkDocs, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
