    wikiJs is a really nice wiki-style solution for markdown docs

    I used for document conversions.

  • Klotho

    AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]. Build cloud backends with Infrastructure-from-Code (IfC), a revolutionary technique for generating and updating cloud infrastructure. Try IfC with AWS and Klotho now (Now open-source)

  • Joplin

    Joplin - an open source note taking and to-do application with synchronisation capabilities for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS.

    The license for Joplin server specifically excludes any sort of commercial or for-profit use for the self-hosted server.

  • obsidian-releases

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

    It may not be exactly what you want but if you use a tool like obsidian then you could do well with just having all your notes in a CVS of some kind (eg git).

  • Docusaurus

    Easy to maintain open source documentation websites. is a pretty good solution for hosting content relevant to the team. You can even integrate search functionality.

  • Outline

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

    If you are looking for a knowledge base type of thing maybe try Outline, under the hood is all markdown, you can import md by just drag and drop the files

  • mdBook

    Create book from markdown files. Like Gitbook but implemented in Rust

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • obsidian-git

    Backup your vault with git

    The formula Obsidian + Obsidian-git suits for me. Maybe also for OP.
