What technologies does Atlassian use to publish its developer documentation?

I really like this: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/DOCS/Atlassian+Plugin+SDK+Commands

I've been struggling to figure out how to export (via standcastle) Visual Studio-generated coding content and publish it to our Confluence wiki. Given that the content must be indexed, it looks like we can't use Confluence modules for posting this type of developer information.

Hallo Taryn

I'm glad you like that page. :) It's manually-created documentation. The site is a Confluence site, using the Zen Foundation theme.

Confluence content is indexed, so it is searchable. It's also accessible to Google and other external search engines, if your site is configured to be open to anonymous access.

The reference documentation generated from the (Java) code is not stored on the wiki. It's HTML, themed to have the same look and feel as the wiki-based documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/static/javadoc/confluence/4.2.4/reference/packages.html

Cheers, Sarah
