  • github-orgmode-tests

    This is a test project where you can explore how github interprets Org-mode files

    I use org-mode, a super-powerful plugin for Emacs (now bundled with Emacs) that provides an amazing list of features, including tagging, outlining, scheduling, todo lists, time-tracking, and much more. It can be used to generate markdown, html, and latex documents, and can be used as a literate programming tool, generating code in a wide variety of languages. All driven by simple, structured, plain text.

  • zotcite

    Vim plugin for integration with Zotero

    I use VimWiki in Markdown format. It is portable and lightweight, but at the same time very versatile. If I need to print some of my notes, I use Pandoc to convert it into a PDF (or other format). I also use it in conjunction with zotcite in order to use my bibliographical database from Zotero inside (Neo)Vim.

  • Gollum

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

  • zim-desktop-wiki

    Zim-wiki, in part because it includes a calendar for journaling, in part because of its plugin architecture, in part because it can export to Markdown, and in part because it's fast.

  • BookStack

    A platform to create documentation/wiki content built with PHP & Laravel

    I switched to BookStack at the start of the year and can recommend it. It has support for markdown and diagrams.

  • CrossLine

    CrossLine is an outliner with sophisticated cross-link capabilities in the tradition of the well-respected Ecco Pro

    Have a look at, an open source cross-platform outliner with true transclusion; it's very fast also with big outlines.

    CLI and local web plain text note‑taking, bookmarking, and archiving with linking, tagging, filtering, search, Git versioning & syncing, Pandoc conversion, + more, in a single portable script.
