Authentication and authorization.
What we like: Provides user signup, login, and role-based authorization flows. Supports social logins, SSO, SAML, multi-tenancy & passwordless login methods. SDKs for most languages & tech stacks, with REST APIs for everything else. Can integrate with API gateways like Kong and AWS API Gateway. Can be self-hosted or cloud hosted.
What we don't like: WebAuthn and passkeys are only available in more expensive plans. Default UI looks a bit dated, so you will want to customize it.
✦ Disclosure: All reviews are editorially independent and partners must meet our selection criteria.
What we like: Send things into the pastebin via SSH and get a shareable web URL. No signup required - uses your SSH key. Viewer supports syntax highlighting and markdown parsing. SSH in for a full terminal UI to manage snippets. Each snippet can be set to private with an expiring URL. Can also be self hosted.
What we don't like: Can’t search the snippets once they’re uploaded.Review permalink
What we like: Write your docs using MDX and React and store them in Git. Layers a nicely designed web UI with dark mode, search & SEO optimization on top. Supports a range of common components like code, callouts, cards, tables, snippets. Includes API documentation from specs like OpenAPI. Has a local dev CLI.
What we don't like: Limited customization options - makes everyone’s docs look the same.Review permalink
