jsdoc vs Wiki.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe jsdoc as "An API documentation generator for JavaScript". JSDoc 3 is an API documentation generator for JavaScript, similar to JavaDoc or PHPDoc. You add documentation comments directly to your source code, right along side the code itself. The JSDoc Tool will scan your source code, and generate a complete HTML documentation website for you. On the other hand, Wiki.js is detailed as "A wiki engine running on Node.js and written in JavaScript". It is an open source, modern and powerful wiki app based on Node.js, Git, and Markdown. It runs on the flamingly fast Node.js engine and is optimized to conserve CPU resources.

jsdoc and Wiki.js can be primarily classified as "Documentation as a Service &" tools.

Some of the features offered by jsdoc are:

  • Up and running easily

- Command line interface
