Organizing and finding docs

With Swimm, information is easy to find. You can organize and find your docs in a few ways:

Right in your IDE​

With Swimm’s IDE plugins, developers read documentation inside their IDE and no longer have to switch contexts to an external place to find documentation.


Folders allow you to create a hierarchy, by grouping related documents or playlists. Every doc, playlist and folder in the repository can have a parent folder.

A Swimm Playlist is just what it sounds like: a collection of documents, links, videos, Markdown files, and images stored as a Playlist collection in a particular order.

Learn more about Playlists.


You can put tags on each doc, and then filter the tags in your repos to quickly find relevant documents. Tags can be assigned to local drafts, as well as docs that have been committed to the repo. When a tag is created, it can be used across all of your workspace repositories.

Doc tags filter

Use Ctrl + K or CMD + K to search across all repositories in your workspace.

This document is automatically kept up to date using Swimm.
