Archbee vs. Readme: What's right for me?

Great question! We think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer from Joe Pettersson - CTO @

We've moved to Archbee from ReadMe recently due to constraints in ReadMe's product and the challenges of scaling it commercially in our model. The big challenges were inherent to how usage scales in their platform.

For example, they see a 'project' as one single set of cohesive documentation and build a UX/UI to facilitate that. It means you need multiple projects for multiple documentation projects. In simple terms, everything in a project is intended to be 'one thing.'

Projects are so distinct and separated that they are hard to maintain at scale (lots of repetition, no setting, or customization sharing). And, if you need the full customization options, you must pay $400 a month for each project.

This is unique to our model, but it's why we've left. Archbee has some (not all) of the same limitations, but they don't charge us $400 a month for each project!
