📚 node [[wiki]]


Has this to say about WikiJS:

Can be linked to a Git repo and do round trip, but the database is the main DB, with sync to/from Git being done at intervals via single committer ID. That said, it is “Docker ready” using NodeJS and is actively maintained.

Which is not quite true. The DB is essentially a cache. The single committer is true.

My notes:

Wikis are tree-based tools for representing hierarchies of information.

This personal wiki is the one I maintain. Others refer to personal wikis as Digital Gardens, Brain Dumps, or Personal Libraries.

The source of this wiki can be found at https://github.com/jakeisnt/wiki



I needed a way to better organize my ideas. Administering structure to my data was a good way to do this, and org-mode provides a good facility for this. Further, the constraints administered by the website motivate me to better organize my notes as they're visible to the public; without this structure the notes won't even render properly.


I'd like my notes to be easily visible to anyone. It allows me to easily share my thoughts and perspectives with friends or colleagues.


This portal also enables recruiters or future collaborators to learn more about me, my skills and my interests. Perhaps I can build a following, inspire someone, or find an interesting job opportunity if someone stumbles upon this wiki.


  • https://years.cblgh.org/ Briefly summarize what you've done each month and year! This is excellent for reflection, learning and growth. It can be easily contrasted with goals. I think that doing this on a monthly basis would be much more helpful than yearly; perhaps I could introduce some tags to the wiki that would help catalogue this.

  • https://www.brendanschlagel.com/2017/11/05/canonize-creating-personal-canon-template/ :: Add a personal canon; catalogue the things that have had the most impact on you. This could be difficult but it's worth goingthrough the effort! Would be great to do some justice to each thing that's inspired you.

  • https://phse.net/values/ :: Cataloguing a list of values on the website seems incredibly value for myself or for others. These ideas are definitely admirable. (Making connections with other people has a higher return than making good work, it seems!)


The design of this wiki has gone through multiple phases.

I started with a Hugo template, adding browsing features in multiple panes to the site, but Hugo proved to be too complex of a tool to sustainably use in the long term.

The current iteration of this site is generated with a Pandoc-based tool I've written myself, as I felt I wanted more customizability. Eventually, I'd like to generate multiple front-ends for the website -- so that visitors can view it as a wiki, as a traditional blog, a series of journals, or something in between -- depending on how they view the website.


I've taken inspiration from several others who maintain wikis.

  • Tommy Morrissfirst introduced me to the idea with his personal (private) wiki.

  • Jethrohas easily accessible articles and templates that I've made use of to put this together.

  • 100 Rabbitspublish all of their notes and information in a custom wiki framework. Logseqis a really cool tool for maintaining a personal knowledge basin that syncs effortlessly with GitHub. https://github.com/kormyen/memex

working with the garage door up:: why we should learn with wikis in the open.

weakty wiki

  • site map!

  • related tags!

  • backlinks!

  • resoures!

  • activity graph for research or projects! i love how this wiki looks and feels uses PARAmethod of organizing information and a feed! god this shit is so good and a table of contents but everything is hidden out of the way! IBM plex mono is almost there - but not quite

hypothesis a margin with conversations anywhere on the web! i cannot stress how cool this is, particularly the trick with the sidebar https://dreamwiki.sixey.es/welcome.dream/ <button class="pull-url" value="https://dreamwiki.sixey.es/welcome.dream/">pull</button> http://mindforger.com/: markdown-powered wiki software

concrete plan

learn to build small software! a wiki is the best way to do this.

  • write a basic org-mode parser in ANSI C and C++ supports links, #+title, nested bullets, etc. fairly simple to start.

  • with inspiration from devine's wiki, integrate this parser into a service that parses things out to html, also written in ANSI C

  • continue to rewrite in rust and other languages, like zig perhaps, for fun and to learn more programming

  • experiment with a file format other than org under the hood; something with an equivalent level of expression but much simpler [i don't use most of the features of org here anyways; org feels like it's doing too much as a file format, and i use different subsets of the format in different ways]

    • would be cool to use a babel-adjacent technology to be able to convert to file formats compatible with other platforms on the fly.


  • figure out the best way to do project management. learn more about the mailing list strategy adn see how that compares to a TODO.org approach that I've been using in a few of my projects to take notes and ideas.

  • build hyper specific tools to interact with my wiki in different ways to enforce certain ways of integrating with it: adding a new idea, journal entry, or something similar for example. emacs is a nice interface and should be worked on, but it shouldn't be the only one. small, portable .sh scripts could be fun to experiment with here.

Wiki is an editable website, usually public. Related: [[digital garden]], something like a private wiki.

A wiki needs a [[wiki engine]] to work. Some people say wikis are dying, see [[wiki necrolog]].

Wikis are important, a lot of stuff I do is wiki-related.

В июле 2015 Джон Льюис и Ферран Тьюфан создали новую вики-ферму — Miraheze. При помощи краудфандинга и персональных инвестиций Miraheze официально был запущен в августе 2015. За несколько лет проект сильно вырос, чтобы стать одной из крупнейших и самых узнаваемых вики-ферм, предлагающих MediaWiki. Несмотря на успех и эволюцию, один аспект Miraheze не изменился — формальное существование. В ноябре 2019 Miraheze был зарегистрирован в Великобритании в качестве некоммерческой организации как Miraheze Limited.

I like wikis. I develop and maintain wiki engines (the software), and I run wikis (various sites, including this one). Whenever I dabble in new protocols like Gopher, Gemini, or Spartan, and whenever start using a particular markup language some more, I think about how one would integrate all this into a wiki.

=> https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2020-06-15_Why_Wiki%E2%80%BD | Alex Schroeder: 2020-06-15 Why Wiki‽

The effort required to maintain a wiki is worth it, to me, because we have a viable alternative to the isolation of self-hosting, and the surrender to value-extracting corporations. Doing things together, achieving things together, is important to teach the new generation of people coming online, it is important to teach ourselves that resistance is not futile, resistance is not a struggle, resistance to the machine is the simple act of having fun and building things together.

=> https://felix.plesoianu.ro/blog/where-to-wiki.html | Felix Rambles: Where to, wiki?

Wait, I know: it's simply too easy for me to open a text file and add a couple of lines. So easy in fact, I have little reason to bother with a wiki. No wonder many developers use one big Org Mode file for the purpose. As for the less technical of us, they'll want rich text, and I can't even blame them.

But plain text files can't bring together communities. No, not even if you put them up on a software forge. Also, they're kind of banal. That's a good thing usually. Except sometimes you want them cool. And Org Mode is much too linear.

A wiki solves all these problems and more. It would be nice if I could recapture that spirit. Timely, too: over on the Community Wiki, they seem to think the medium is due for a revival, if it hasn't started already.

Observable is an approachable programming environment for data visualization, or really, almost anything you can imagine in Javascript. With the frame plugin, a wiki page is also a programming environment. Here we share one example integrating the two. We hope to encourage other examples.

Little Outliner is an easy to learn, entry-level outliner that runs in a web browser.

It's written in JavaScript. You must have JS turned on in the browser to be able to use it.

=> http://sdi.thoughtstorms.info/?p=1450 | The Lower-Case Mistake

The mistake is that wiki page names are obviously CamelCased for readability. A convention I like very much and continue to use. But I decided to make the file-names all lower-case. In other words, I throw away the capitalization of the name.

I don't want to throw the old ones away wholesale. It's not that they aren't interesting, or sometimes very informative. But somehow the weighting is wrong. We need ways for older ideas to naturally recede and not be "deleted" but gradually overwritten / swamped by the newer stuff.

    • it could also be something [[wiki]] based -- the idea of reading from git repositories as a simple distributed base is compatible with that, and why I started the Agora based on this emergent standard.
