Hi there,

 

If you write your API docs manually, you can do that anywhere, from WordPress to GitHub. But it’s often convenient to use a generator – a tool that will automatically populate your documentation pages with code snippets, headers, and sample requests. 

We usually prefer giving a few tips about choosing the tool rather than making a choice for others, so when looking for a generator, pay attention to these features:

  • Latest OpenAPI support
  • Customization capabilities
  • Automatic docs updates
  • Available themes and templates
  • Open source features if you’re on a budget

You can start by reviewing this list of tools loved by API developers:

Hope this helped! We also recommend reading our article on writing good API documentation as it gives some foundational tips.
