Hosting your developer documentation just got easier. Today we’re announcing that all Corilla users have access to forever free hosting of unlimited documentation. And that includes the free tiers too 🙌
Why we’re making this change is surprisingly simple. It’s needed. Like many developers and technical writers I spent years living under the delusion of “just spinning it up myself”. This was originally a necessity — we’re not shy in voicing our frustration that the major technical writing products on the market are stagnant to the point of irrelevance.
I shudder to think of how many project hours my teams in the past have burned setting up (let alone maintaining) publishing workflows. We justify this of course because we like to tinker — especially those of us with design and developer backgrounds. But the hard questions that need to be asked are:
Is spending time building documentation and publishing tools really helping our users solve their problems?
Could we be speaking to users instead? Getting feedback from the support teams? Working through the user journeys with the UX team?
The answer is often uncomfortable but simple. It’s time to get back to writing.
The legacy of the in-house era was shattered for me when I started to think about the cost and complexity of internal productions. The rise of the SaaS model brought a certain painful reality: if we’re spending anything more than one hour a month on building and maintaining our documentation toolchain, we’re actually costing the company more money than using a dedicated SaaS product.
And one of the best things about using a SaaS product is that it keeps on getting better while you keep paying the same price. Something we make easy to track here at Corilla — especially with our transparent public roadmap and release notes.
Extending our free hosting policy to companies and projects on the free tier makes sense — especially after moving our knowledge base into open beta and a full pricing update. You get the world’s best collaborative content management tool under active development and we get the chance to show you enough value that you will grow your company with us through the various pricing tiers.
Are you a SaaS company looking to publish your user documentation? A small team wanting an internal knowledge base built around collaboration. We’ve got you.
A solo project needing robust documentation? A startup needing to get a head-start on managing all that content and information with pre-configured templates? A team needing help doing something with that legacy collection of content? Yeah we’ve got you too.
So here we go. Get started on Corilla today.
