Docs is the product that contains our documentation.

Surprising, isn't it?

Public Oath

  1. The documentation is located at:


  1. Docs is a static site built with Docusaurus, JavaScript, Graphviz, and Markdown.
  2. At build time, we generate search indexes to leverage search functionality through Algolia, and transform the .dot source files into SVG format using Graphviz.
  3. Once built, its static content is deployed to an S3 bucket on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
  4. All of the media content (images, videos, etc) is stored (and served from) Cloudinary.
  5. The domain's registrar is Cloudflare, which also proxies incoming traffic from the users through the Cloudflare network (CDN, Firewall, etc), and caches the content for some time using Page Rules. Before a request is returned to the user, a Cloudflare Worker adds HTTP security headers like the Content-Security-Policy. In top of this, we have a few redirections from doc to docs, just in case a user forgets the s.
  6. In order to allow developers to test their changes, an ephemeral environment is deployed from their Git branch into<branch>. So that they can check that everything is OK before opening a Merge Request on GitLab.
