    I have discovered Bookstack for myself. You can sort all your documentations and have a nice overview.

  • memos

    A lightweight, self-hosted memo hub. Open Source and Free forever.

    i am not able to write/maintain a wiki that i enjoy coming back to so i use memos now and organize everything with hashtags.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • snippet-box

    Snippet Box is a simple self-hosted app for organizing your code snippets. It allows you to easily create, edit, browse and manage your snippets in various languages.

    I'm a big fan of Bookstack, but for saving commands I use Snippet-Box.

  • wikmd

    A file based wiki that uses markdown


  • Publii

    Publii is a desktop-based CMS for Windows, Mac and Linux that makes creating static websites fast and hassle-free, even for beginners.

    I've also just started to look at Publii as a website creation tool as a replacement but it dies lack security for multi-user use :-(

  • MkDocs

    Project documentation with Markdown.

    I tried most of the above mentioned and settled down with MkDocs for its simplicity. It produces static web pages so you can easily host it with any web server.

  • obsidian-releases

    So not opensource but free and not really a wiki but a note app ( you said you want one, so that's why I am mentioning it ) ->
