One of the nicest LaTeX examples I have seen is the Microtype documentation.

The .dtx file is available here and I have been trying to recreate a document looking like this. Unfortunately it's not super clear to me how to recreate a similar document from the .dtx file.

I am using

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{ltxdoc}

which is straight from the .dtx file. Is that the package from the original .tex file?

I'm also interested in recreating the color scheme and margin notes!

The ltxdoc class is the standard LaTeX documentation class. The microtype documentation just extends this class via a number of macros defined in the preamble. Copy everything from the preamble to emulate the looks of the documentation package.

\documentclass{ltxdoc}
   copy up to line 647
\begin{document}

You can then remove carefully any definitions you might not want that are specific to the microtype documentation.
