  • silverbullet

    The hackable notebook

  • not exactly what you want but have a look at generates an editable website from .md files. all files are listed with ctrl+k (or click on the icon), has a login, though I use basic auth from my webserver, and layout is simple and nice.

  • Gollum

    A simple, Git-powered wiki with a sweet API and local frontend.

  • 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.

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.

  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

  • In your case, I would recommend a static site generator such as Jekyll or Hugo. Fair warning: it will not work out of the box (unless you find a theme that exactly matches what you want) but it should be easy to set up assuming you have even the smallest bit of coding/web dev experience.

  • obsidian-releases

    Community plugins list, theme list, and releases of Obsidian.

  • Trilium Notes

    Build your personal knowledge base with Trilium Notes

  • I using Trilium as my personal knowlege.

  • wikmd

    A file based wiki that uses markdown

  • The other one I've been meaning to look at is wikimd, which looks like it might be prettier, but Gollum is working fine for me still.

  • Outline

    The fastest knowledge base for growing teams. Beautiful, realtime collaborative, feature packed, and markdown compatible.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
