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

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

  • wikmd

    A file based wiki that uses markdown


  • Publii

    The most intuitive Static Site CMS designed for SEO-optimized and privacy-focused websites.

    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 :-(

    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.

    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 ) ->
