  • otterwiki

    A minimalstic wiki powered by python, markdown and git.

  • Can't think of anything that meets all the criteria, there's always some compromise, which might just be the way it is. For example I could 'self-host' otterwiki or wiki.js on a VPS for a pretty small monthly fee, which I could also use for other stuff that doesn't make sense for a home lab, but then I also need to deal with security since it's hosted on the internet. Or I could self-host and just accept that there's risk of it not being available when my wife needs it or if I die suddenly.

  • Wiki.js

    Wiki.js | A modern and powerful wiki app built on Node.js

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • commonmark-spec

    CommonMark spec, with reference implementations in C and JavaScript

  • BookStack dev here. There's no specific "import" option but you can use the Markdown editor in BookStack and paste in your Markdown content there. The API is essentially just an endpoint to accept the same kind of data, for of course you could automate against the API for batch import. One thing to keep in mind is that BookStack markdown support is fairly tightly scoped to (commonmark + tables + tasklists), although HTML within MD is supported.

  • Gollum

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