I saw scroll viewport which looks like a great app, but is only available on the server version of confluence. - https://www.atlassian.com/blog/add-ons/5-real-life-examples-beautiful-technical-documentation
We use the Cloud version, does anybody know of any other great apps which can also be used to create looking online documentation for customers?
I've seen this discussion but doesn't give many options: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Questions/Scroll-Versions-for-cloud-hosted-Confluence/qaq-p/31458
Hi @Adam Smith ,
Scroll Viewport is still only available for Server or Data Center, but a Cloud alternative here would be Scroll Documents, which you can use to create a public library for your documents and even multi-page documents.
It's more lightweight on the customization end, but offers a lot of benefits for the authoring side of things like versioning, a great diffing feature, and an integration with our Exporter apps. Here’s a blog post that outlines this solution, with a couple examples of live public sites and libraries to take a look at.
If you have any questions, we'd be happy to help or show you a demo of the app. Just get in touch with us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pode nos informar a diferença entre o Scroll Documents e o Refined Spaces for Confluence? Não está muito claro.
Precisamos publicar alguns documentos para clientes externos e gostaríamos que esses documentos tivessem nossas customizações.
Qual seria o melhor modelo?
Scroll Documents is geared more toward the versioning, management and change tracking of your documentation in Confluence, whereas Refined Spaces is about theming the content.
If you're looking to cut down on apps, you can still publish your documents publicly with Scroll Documents where readers can see and read documents from the Library like this example here. As you can see, you can add a custom cover image to each document and you are able to read the whole document (multiple Confluence pages) at once.
But since it's not a theming app, teams like ThinkTilt have added Refined Spaces in order to offer an experience that doesn't look and feel like Confluence.
As my colleagues have stated here, Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud is coming soon, so that could potentially be a solution for you as well if you're looking for something even more customizable.
Hi @Adam Smith
You might be interested in hearing that we are currently looking to bring Scroll Viewport to Confluence Cloud customers.
I know your post is a few years old now, but if it’s still relevant we would love to hear more about your use case. Even if you have already moved on to implement a different solution, we'd be interested in learning more about the current way you are bringing documentation to your customers and chat about ways to improve this.
If you're interested, we would like to take 1 hour of your time and explore some these questions with you. Just send us an email to email@example.com (subject: Viewport Cloud Interview) and we will find a time that suits you.
Thanks for your interest! Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud will be available in a few weeks from now. You can sign up for updates here and we'll notify you with the release date: https://www.k15t.com/software/scroll-viewport/scroll-viewport-for-confluence-cloud
I only know of this alternative for Cloud: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/instant-websites/cloud/overview.

I hope I was able to help.
If you were thinking of using Scroll Viewport for Cloud and are concerned about indexing of your documents, I just wanted to note here that the Viewport site you generate with our app is hosted by us as a static site, so the indexing performs considerably better than a raw Confluence page that you make public to the web.
If you still wanted to download, alter and upload the Viewport site to a different domain: This is currently not possible on Confluence Cloud, but is something we have on our radar. I'm always happy to discuss details and find out more about your requirements in that space. You can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deployed and then added long lifetime cloudfront CDN. Performance is amazing, typical page loads around 10 ms per article. Required mappings below. Only less nice factor is that not all paths are below the chosen prefix ('kb' in this case), so you can add at most one environment in this easy way.
We are happy to announce that configuring your own custom domains is now part of the feature set that Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud ships with.
Using a custom domain for your Viewport site is a great way to further customise and make the Help Center really look and feel yours.
