Software documentation that doesn’t suck.
Presidium is a software documentation management system for Agile teams and their users, made from the stuff software engineers love.

Presidium is built from the tools you already use, such as GitHub or Bitbucket for content management, Markdown for content markup, Jekyll to generate static sites, a sprinkling of Javascript for dynamic menus, and an extensible approach for ingesting existing content from Swagger, Javadoc, JSDoc...with more to come.

If you're a software engineer, you already know how to use Presidium.
