Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Hermes, an Open Source Document Management System
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 31 Jan 2023
That seems something in the ballpark of my favorite wiki software:
Edit and view pages as a normal markdown wiki. But the backend is just a git repository of markdown files so you can also just use your text editor and git pull/push. Usable by any novice but with the ideal power user interface.
Simple personal knowledgebase

I'm currently using Gollum Wiki in this way. It reads from a git repository, formats the markdown files nicely, and has a limited editor that is useful in a pinch.
What’s the prettiest yet most lightweight self-hosted wiki service out there?
8 projects | /r/selfhosted | 25 Dec 2022
I use Gollum, it's very simple but fits my needs.

Looking for the best self-hosted Markdown notes setup with web acces
8 projects | /r/selfhosted | 13 Nov 2022
Gollum would be an excellent solution. It's a web interface to a directory of markdown (or other formats), backed by git. Easy to sync the plain text files on your own devices (e.g. Syncthing) while still having a public web interface for school/work computers.
Any zk like app that can run on a web server?
5 projects | /r/Zettelkasten | 21 Sep 2022
Gollum could meet the need. Logseq might work as well; here's a potential guide to self-hosting.
Local, Server-Less, OpenSource Wiki?

Simple selfhosted note taking

I use ikiwiki, but I have also seen gollum mentioned here.
Looking for a simple wiki (web, not desktop) that stores backend as markdown files?
9 projects | /r/selfhosted | 10 Jul 2022
Gollum might be something worth looking into. It is basically a clone of the GitHub Wiki pages, built on top of git (so it uses version-controlled flat files as backend).9 projects | /r/selfhosted | 10 Jul 2022
Gollum wiki fits the description, with git and a satisfying look and feel to boot.
TiddlyPWA: putting TiddlyWiki on modern web app steroids
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 26 Jul 2023
TiddlyWiki still works as intended: https://tiddlywiki.com/#GettingStarted but there are so many different clients to run on. Mobile or Desktop ? What OS? What Browser?
This effort https://val.packett.cool/blog/tiddlypwa/ is remarkable as the mobile side of saving is not as robust as on the desktop side of things and there is a scaling limit on performance as the number of tiddlers grows. Also the syncing between tw documents between different desktop/mobile clients can be a challenge with diffing.
Since then I've moved back to plain vanilla vim for a wiki (map gf :tabe ) but tw.html is still good for data other than plain text and TiddlyPWA https://tiddly.packett.cool/ is a great effort to revisit TiddlyWiki again.
Effect of Perceptual Load on Performance Within IDE in People with ADHD Symptoms

You should check out TiddlyWiki as it’s designed around the concept that small linkable notes are the best way to organize.
Be brutally honest: What are the chances of a motivated 50-year-old person in US who have never studied computers to be able not only to teach herself how to code but also to make a bare minimum living?

Why is Trilium so unknown?
2 projects | /r/linux | 23 Jun 2023
Wow...this is nice. I use https://tiddlywiki.com/ and it's great, but there's way more functionality in Trilium.
Ask HN: What's a good, privacy focused bookmark manager?
13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Jun 2023
I would also offer to use a single file wiki such as tiddly wiki. It’s more than a bookmark manager, but it can be edited on the web and even stored in a git forge (like GitHub page).
Upcoming Reddit API Changes and the Future of r/leagueoflinux - Looking for Feedback
5 projects | /r/leagueoflinux | 9 Jun 2023
I think the biggest issue I have with with the alternatives I've looked at so far have been the lack of built-in wiki tools. I currently heavily rely upon the built-in reddit wiki for collecting and documenting everything here, which further complicates the situation. To be fully transparent, my plan was already for the next major iteration of the wiki to be off-site, something akin to a TiddlyWiki or DokuWiki; I've had this in mind for a long time now, including while rewriting the current iteration of the wiki. However, I am nowhere near beginning that project, and certainly wouldn't have anything cobbled together before July 1st. Effectively, wiki tooling is a must-have.
Notebook in html format
2 projects | /r/ADHD_Programmers | 5 Jun 2023
TiddlyWiki is along that same idea but with a wiki setup. You just download a template html and then its yours to do with as you wish. I used it for note taking in school, worked reasonably well.
Is the Zettelkasten method right for me?
2 projects | /r/Zettelkasten | 27 May 2023
And although I have used OneNote at work, I actually prefer using TiddlyWiki, which is a great tool for adopting the Zettelkasten method (and see an associated video).
Come back, c2.com, we still need you
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 15 May 2023
IMO TiddlyWiki is a much better implementation of this UI idea of bite-sized, heavily linked text (card catalog?) with multiple simultaneously visible entries. (No federation and a bizarre storage approach though.)
 https://tiddlywiki.com/ (haven’t looked at the homepage in years, the current one seems kind of awful and not really bite-sized unfortunately).
Is there a "perfect" GTD app?
3 projects | /r/gtd | 13 May 2023
I've personally gone through the entire process to its inevitable conclusion, starting with plain reminders on my phone, moving to text files (infinite customizability! but also very little functionality!), then 2Do and GoodTask for iOS which both had tons of customization options, and finally culminating in basically making my own todo app in TiddlyWiki. I've got an advantage in that I'm a software engineer already so it was a fun experience and not a frustrating one, and I was able to build up a little ecosystem of scripts and hacks around it to flesh it out and integrate it with the other systems and devices in my life.
What are some alternatives?
Wiki.js - Wiki.js | A modern and powerful wiki app built on Node.js
logseq - A local-first, non-linear, outliner notebook for organizing and sharing your personal knowledge base. Use it to organize your todo list, to write your journals, or to record your unique life.
Dokuwiki - The DokuWiki Open Source Wiki Engine
Gitit - A wiki using HAppS, pandoc, and git
