Is there any software to create a wiki for personal use? Just to keep track of things I discover so I don’t have to search for hours every time. Some plus are: foss, being able to self host, minimal but appealing interface (it’s ok to write some css), it’s ok if I have to write markdown. Doesn’t strictly have to be all those things at the same time
@SonoMichele I like using Emacs's org mode for that kinda thing.
You can easily like between org files, display images, and bits of code.
I prefer the file based approach as opposed to the web-sight version. It makes it harder to access your personal wiki from any device on your network. But it's one less thing to worry about, and it's as secure as your computer is.
Org mode is the only reason why I have Emacs installed on my computer. Spacemacs makes it easy to do as a vim user.
@SonoMichele I use dokuwiki for this. Easy to self-host, and flat file so no database server needed. There is a plug-in for markdown, but I’ve found it a bit fussy in conjunction with indents for code.
@SonoMichele In Debian I used to use docuwiki for this and stick it on a common machine. It's dead simple to setup and use.
