A tour to my Zettelkasten note clusters

I mentioned this in another comment, but you should check out tiddlywiki with the mind map plugin
Getting images imported via drag and drop nicely sorted into date-based folders on Node.js
1 project | reddit.com/r/TiddlyWiki5 | 9 Jan 2022
As most of you probably know, it is possible to drag and drop images into the editor since TW 5.2.0 (for those who don't check out the neat video at https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5/pull/5699). I'm now looking to have these images automagically stored in a specific folder based on the current year to keep things under control.
What is this tag filtering feature called and why do so few apps have it?
1 project | reddit.com/r/PKMS | 6 Jan 2022
You can do this fairly easily with a macro in Tiddlywiki. There are even “versions” of Tiddlywiki that behave like Roam that are free if you like that format.
Current state of world-building software?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/rpg | 3 Jan 2022
I use Obsidian portal for my public/player-facing side of my game and a tiddly wiki for the GM side. This lets me link to things that probably shouldn't go up on a public-facing website due to copyright as well as keep offline backups, but write things in Tiddly Wiki then cut-and-paste it into OP. The formatting differences between the two are annoying, but minor

I already posted a suggestion, but you might actually have better luck with TiddlyWiki, essentially a free personal Wikipedia, plus the Speech-to-Text plugin. It seems like you can make your own custom commands, and players can view it from Google Drive with the Google Drive plugin.
E-lab notebook options

I have a labarchives account through my institute so I use that for the most part. But I've also had tiddlywiki recommended by a lecturer and I think it has some useful features, plus it's also free.
A whole website and a single HTML file

This reminds me a bit of TiddlyWiki, minus the whole "you can edit the file using the file itself" part.14 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 23 Dec 2021
Well, TiddlyWiki has been going it for 17(!) years. It's a very mature, polished, and extensible engine for wikis, blogs, and personal knwledge bases.
The entire thing (including the editor!) is a single .html file. By default, even images are embedded.
For my ADHD Wiki, a resource that talks about ADHD with a copious amounts of relatable memes intertwined with the text, I chose to just use images in the same directory instead of embedding them; so you might need to do some work to download that page (I think File -> Save as.. can give you a readable static version on some browsers).
Anyway, somewhat surprising that people are stumbling into how much you can do with just one well-crafted .html file. Look ma, no node.js, no (no)SQL database, no nothing except for one file for one website (and that file isn't even that large, given what TiddlyWiki allows you to do).
TiddlyWiki can be run on node.js, but I don't see much reason to. If I want to make changes, I use the built-in editor, and then the "Save..." button generates me the .html of the updated version. Save it over the old one, upload over ftp, done. No deployment process to speak of.
And, at that, the feature set rivals (and, at times, exceeds) that of, say, Wikipedia.
(And for math nerds: it supports LaTeX via a KaTeX plugin. Maybe you can't copy-paste your entire thesis, but it's pretty damn close to real-time full-featured LaTeX).
Show HN: BookStack – An open source wiki platform and alternative to Confluence

Not sure if this fully fits your needs but you might want to look at Wiki.js. You can self host it, has WYSIWYG editor available. I'm not associated, just use it for some time.
My Personal Note Taking Journey
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Jan 2022
It could be worth looking at Wiki.js (https://js.wiki/). It's not perfect, but I started using a self hosted instance recently and it has worked out ok so far. With markdown and git sync it doesn't feel like I'm stuck if I want to move on to something else in the future, or if I want to do some automation/scripting with the contents.

Is it possible to create a website that uses MediaWiki and also can be hosted on a personal computer?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2 Dec 2021
I don't mean to be nosy, but Mediawiki is a very good platform for megaprojects that need to scale to millions of users. For small homey wikis there are way simpler options. I was considering running a self hosted wiki at work for a bit, and did some research and this is what, IMHO, suited our profile better: https://js.wiki/

Wiki JS fits and works well for documentation repos and other knowledge base collections.

wiki.js is used by some giant companies. Their website, counterintuitively, is https://js.wiki
