Building Docs For NuGet Packages With VSTS And GitHub Pages

May 27, 2017

This is one of those questions that gets asked every week or so - I want to build documentation for my package the same way docs.microsoft.com does, but on my own server/cluster. While today we do not provide the entire infrastructure as a single open-source entity (but you can certainly read up on what we do behind the scenes), I thought I would write a short guide on how you can document your own NuGet packages and then publish the documentation on GitHub pages.
