For years I’ve worked at places where we just needed a simple to use, searchable, unobtrusive, no-nonsense, collaborative and free place to dump documentation. The first thing that comes to mind is a Wiki but for some reason I can never find anything that "checks all the boxes". Hopefully you'll find this one does for you.
- TightWiki is a .netcore ASP MVC razor WIKI written in C# that sits on top of a SQL Server database.
- Play with the latest dev build at http://TightWiki.com/. If you want to edit, you can signup using google auth or native TightWiki login.
- Or check out the full wiki documentation to learn about the engine functionality.
- Also be sure to check out the screenshots below the feature list...
