Technical Documentation Writing

Knowledge are generated throughout the entire life cycle of your project. From problem discovery to product delivery, your project is forged through many insightful chats and many decisions made. Too often you find your notes all over the place yet you cannot locate the specific detail you need. The project is an entirety, so should your documentation be. HackMD is the only tool you need for technical documentation.


Documentation IS conversation. It is a conversation between you and your colleagues and the future you. Create the document when and where the conversation happens. Record all discussions and pivots while the idea flows and resonates.

Context Captured

Add context to your points instantly with PDFs, images, and videos. With automatic save, every bit of editing is captured and everyone’s contribution is attributed to their names. Easily revert back to previous edition if needed.

Native Markdown

If you write in markdown, why change for your tools? With HackMD, all your writings would be in markdown and portable to any platform. No more jammed formatting when copy-paste. You can even “write” flow charts, math formulae, and graphviz!

Knowledge Net

Your projects are built on top of each others. A single piece of knowledge could be relevant to many projects. Documentation shouldn’t be siloed into nested folders. Collect related notes into a book with HackMD Book Mode. Read documents like reading a story, not panning for gold.

Technical Sharing and Presentation

Knowledge won’t last until it is written. Written knowledge are meant to be shared. HackMD helps you do sharing right, not only documentation but also presentation. HackMD removes the overheads and hassles so you could share and learn more, and more often. Whether you are the one presenting, or the one taking notes, or even the event organizer, we got your back covered.

Turn Notes into Slides

Create slides with ease in HackMD. Just add some dividers and you’re good to go on stage. HackMD features a presenter view with timer and deck overview. Customize theme and animations in markdown. Skip some branched slides when time is running out!

Better Conference

Note taking at conferences should be a shared effort. The event organizer could simply create a book with notes for each workshop, and everyone could share their notes. Notes can also embed slides, recordings, and pictures. Archive the whole conference experience in HackMD.

Questions Polling

Have a question for the speaker? Don’t pass microphone around in the 21st century. Write down your questions in the embedded disqus forum and know that the speaker will read your questions with clarity. Extend the workshop online so the connection lasts forever.
