Came across this self-hosted wiki tool the other day, I’m really into it. I believe it’s a conceptual derivative of @neauoire’s Oscean (which is amazing but over my head).
The engine is called Purity, by Victor/vi/V-OS, and uses .txt files, which are then parsed and rendered in a standard HTML/CSS format. You can ‘automatically’ interlink files using a markdownesque convention of symbols and brackets in the middle of text. So writing #[music] in the middle of a sentence would automatically create a link to music.txt, if that file/page exists.
I’ve been using it to put together a personal wiki / commonplace book, really enjoying it’s slight esotericism and constraints as a way to drill into the connective tissues between different ideas (wiki style).
Here’s an excerpted summary, from the readme.md:
Text files written in the appropriate format are parsed through Purity 's multi-layered parser into PHP objects called
artifacts . Each
artifact corresponds to a page, and once populated, is parsed into its html counterpart.
In short, Purity is a single-template content management system, made for (me, but also) programmers / people minimally experienced in web dev who:
- Don’t want to deal with creating their own parsing system.
- Want to create a wiki-site / have a consistent page layout.
- Want to use a lightweight, simple system.
- Want to retain control over how things look and behave.
Recommend giving it a spin!
