I've used DokuWiki for 10 years or so for some simple ongoing personal wikis. It's brilliant and I still recommend it to friends who ask for a tool like it.
Separately, I've always taken various notes in plain text file form not wishing to "complicate" things with a wiki. Recently a colleague introduced me to Markdown (https://www.markdownguide.org/cheat-sheet/
) and I converted some recent notes to it's simple syntax. As a next step I wanted to render the documents and used Pandoc (https://pandoc.org
) to generate html from multiple files but I was quickly frustrated by the "no joined together" approach of Markdown and the countless uncoordinated forks/add-ons to address these and other issues. I then read about AsciiDoc (https://asciidoctor.org/docs/what-is-asciidoc/
) & reStructuredText (http://www.sphinx-doc.org/en/master/usage/restructuredtext/basics.html
) as alternatives to Markdown. But as I read about them I thought to myself that's just more markup like DokuWiki uses, why don't I just use DokuWiki markup instead!
So, can I have a collection of DokuWiki formatted text documents that I can render together* without having DokuWiki itself installed?
*let's say be able to build a table of contents from multiple DokuWiki formatted files and to be able to consistently regenerate them to the same html
I searched for similar ideas but I found no mention. It does not sound such a crazy idea to me? :-)
or maybe I should just use Textile (https://txstyle.org/
All comments welcomed.
