This is my personal wiki. At first it should only serve as a memory aid. The contributions are therefore mostly informal and contain simple enumerations of tips. Also, the documents are initially still rather a loose collection. Also, not everything will be published. Let's see where the project goes.
So far, I've captured my knowledge in text files (ending .txt) and stored them in a directory structure organized by topics in a shared folder on my NAS. So really rudimentary. This was always important to me, so that the information is accessible independent of the technical tool. So independent of the operating system of the computer and its possibilities to display the content. This form was sufficient for many years. But longer texts became confusing without the possibility to highlight chapters and headings. Tables were not possible. And screenshots were not possible at all. So something better was needed.
Working with the version control system Git I got to know Markdown files (extension .md). With this, everything I had been missing in my text files was possible. And this with a relatively simple markup language. So the transition to Markdown seemed to me to be the least onerous. I then experimented with it for some time. MkDocs can additionally manage the Markdown files. This seemed to me to be a good solution because it does not require a database and the texts themselves remain independent of any software. In the end, however, I was not satisfied with MkDocs and Visual Code because the path from input to readable text is too cumbersome.
Professionally, I work a lot with Confluence. There I quickly got used to the comfort of a Wysiwyg interface. Once you understand how it works, you can use it to write and format large texts fluently. Even highly structured documentation can be managed reliably. However, Confluence is a commercial product and therefore closed source. Somehow, I always have the uneasy feeling that I am not in control of my data.
And so I continued to search for a wiki software that would work for me. The shortlist included the good old Doku-Wiki, the extensive Mediawiki, and the modern Wiki.js. Doku-Wiki is known to have many advantages. However, it seems a bit outdated and, in my opinion, is no longer being developed further. Mediawiki seems to be much too extensive for my purposes. So the choice went to Wikis.js.
