    Sigil vs GitBook opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Sigil is still a legitimate alternative to GitBook, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Gitbook doesnt do what it says in the description, they are not open source anymore and they changed their product, so the similarities are not there.
