Looking for an online knowledge management tool. I need only very simple functionality:

  • add articles (free text or w/simple markup);
  • tag articles;
  • full-text search over KB.

Is there a online option to do so?

P.S. It's for my personal use, so no need for access restrictions (it's all private for me, like Trello private boards).

    "online option" suggests that it should be a hosted Web app, is that correct? Do you need access restriction? Do you have a budget?

  • With access restriction I mean if the content shold be publicly available or only behind a login. If I understand your edit correctly, you do want to restrict access, right? (though I don’t know Trello, so maybe there it’s public?) -- And what about my first question? (it should be a Web app hosted by someone else, is that right?)

I recommend DokuWiki since it's perfect for small projects but highly versatile and expandable with plugins, above that it's open source and doesn't require a database.

You can either run it on a server or on your desktop – or both and sync it by using the Synchronization Plugin.

DokuWiki is out there since 2004, actively maintained by its main-developer and has quite a large community and I think it's safe to say that it will be around for a very long time…
