If you have a project that entails many chapters or is organized in an outline format, this is super-helpful. I love Git Book. Totally underrated software.

Pros:

Open Source, easy to use, minimal UI, perfect tool for what it's meant to be used for. Lightweight.

Cons:

Hard to think of any. It's under-rated.

Totally love the new version of GitBook. It makes writing my first book so easy and fun. I wish more people will adopt GitBook.

Pros:

Great user experience (fast and responsive), feature-full (code snippets, search bar)

Cons:

The concept of "spaces" is somewhat confusing.

Developer Experience Manager

I used GitBook to collaborate with other authors on my book quite related to the subject, Docs Like Code (https://docslikecode.com). I loved the ebook output but for print I had to use additional tools.

Pros:

Lets authors use a development-like workflow

Cons:

Some of the plugins were outdated or unmaintained; PDF was not print-ready to my specifications.

Copywriter
Why is this insanely slow? Basic actions such as copy/paste take 3-5 seconds. I've cleared cookies and that helps temporarily. The problem is that it wants to autosave/sync every second, I think.
