I'm after an application that I can use to store information.

  • It must be opensource
  • preferably written in PHP for easy manipulation
  • for a single user, so ACLs are unneccessary
  • preferably use Markdown
  • preferably database-less, storing the content as files
  • allow the creation of books/guides (grouped pages) as well as single pages
  • allow the content to be searchable
  • preferably live preview
  • extensionable with a plugin system
  • installable on a Linux server
  • preferably without excessive user login / profile functionality as this isn't needed
  • As a single user, does it actually need to be server based, or would a standalone software like OpenOffice do the trick for you? – Marcel Aug 28 '17 at 12:50
  • @Marcel yes, I want to be able to access it from various devices. – user3791372 Aug 28 '17 at 14:07

DokuWiki sounds like a good candidate:

  • opensource
  • written in PHP
  • intended for private use, small to medium companies
  • Markdown support as plugin
  • no database required
  • searchable
  • preview available
  • extensionable with a plugin system
  • installable on a Linux server
  • creation of books/guides (grouped pages) as well as single pages - not sure

Maybe worth a look. Also, if you are curious, check out WikiMatrix to have a look at the available wikis.
