Generate Doc Sites From Text With Lumentis And Claude AI

Effortlessly generate comprehensive documentation sites from texts with Lumentis and Claude 3 models.

Lumentis is an open-source node.js package that uses Claude 3 models to transform your text-based content into beautiful, informative, and well-organized documentation sites.

What’s really cool is that Lumentis gives you control over the process. You can choose different AI models depending on your needs and budget, change or restart the process at any time, and even review and edit the generated outlines before the AI gets to work on the detailed pages.

How to use it:

1. Grab Lumentis from GitHub and install it using bun install.

git clone
cd lumentis
bun install
bun run run

2. Run Lumentis in an empty directory.

npx lumentis

3. Pick an AI model for meta inference. Choose from Claude 3 models with varying capabilities and costs.

  • Claude 3 Opus: inputTokensPerM: 15; outputTokensPerM: 75
  • Claude 3 Sonnet: inputTokensPerM: 3; utputTokensPerM: 15
  • Claude 3 Haiku: inputTokensPerM: 0.25; utputTokensPerM: 1.25

4. Drag and drop your transcript, document, notes, or any text content into the interface.

10. Here are some example doc sites generated by Lumentis:

  1. The Feynman Lectures on Physics – taken from the 5 hour Feynman Lectures, this is Sonnet doing the hard work for 72 cents, and Haiku writing it out for 38 cents.
  2. Designing Frictionless Interfaces for Google – Mustafa Kurtuldu gave a wonderful talk on design and UX I wish more people would watch. Now you can read it. (Do still watch it) but this is Haiku doing the whole thing for less than 8 (not eighty) cents!
  3. How the AI in Spiderman 2 works – from something that’s been on my list for a long time. Opus took about $3.80 to do the whole thing.
  4. Sam Altman and Lex Friedman on GPT-5 – Sam and Lex had a conversation recently. Here’s Opus doing the hard work for $2.3, and Sonnet doing the rest for $2.5. This is the expensive option.
  5. Self-Discover in DSPy with Chris Dossman – an interesting conversation between Chris Dossman and Weviate about DSPy and structured reasoning, one of the core concepts behind the framework. Eugene splurged something like $25 on this because he wanted to see how Lumentis would do at its best.

Is Lumentis free to use?

Lumentis itself is free to use. However, accessing the AI models requires an Anthropic API key, which may incur costs depending on your usage.
