    We already had  a wiki on Redmine, but we wanted something more modern, with good support for editing and markdown out of the box. After some research we ended up choosing Outline, partly because it is written in a high-available way. This makes Outline a great service to run on Zerops.

    Wikis are useful for this as it’s easier to collaborate to put documents together and keep them up to date. I had come across outline a while ago, never got a chance to test it out but it seems to match up with your needs.

    Long time onenote user. Although I can’t say it’s exactly like onenote, I have now settled with Outline wiki. https://www.getoutline.com Check it out, once you accept the fact that it doesn’t have internal auth of any sort, it’s pretty good.

    I use https://www.getoutline.com/ for this in my company. Great tool, can be self-hosted but you need to provide some kind of IdP (keycloak or authentik maybe) and - if you want to save attachments - an S3 bucket.
