Interactive AI-Powered Docs for Developers

With the newest improvements in AI (namely GPT-4), we might not have to read long and boring documents or blog posts anymore.

Meme of there are no docs, only AI interaction

With the implementation of ChatGPT directly into documentation pages, we'll be able to have personalized and specific conversations with documentation, allowing us to speed up our learning and coding processes. And with loads of interactive buttons to copy prompts or the whole context of documentation pages, our lives as developers are about to get a whole lot easier.

Same thing but video

Watch my YouTube video about how AI can improve docs, wikipedias and Company Knowledge Base pages.


One example could be a button in the developer documentation that allows users to copy and paste a specific prepared context for the ChatGPT prompt, making it easier to find the information they need.

Another example could be a button to copy and paste a specially prepared, minified version of the whole main examples and docs that will fit into the prompt context window, saving users valuable time and effort.

By adopting this approach, documentation can be created in a format that fits text and code models, making it easier for users to engage with the content and achieve their development goals.


And it's not just about convenience - the new BYOK (Bring Your Own Key) standard is on the horizon, making AI apps and demos more accessible and cost-effective.

With this new standard, we won't have to worry about expensive and energy-hungry AI. We can simply bring our own keys to the party and enjoy the benefits of interactive and personalized documentation without breaking the bank for the website owner.
