    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    If you are looking for something lightweight, Nuclino would be a great option. It's fast and minimalist and allows you to structure your documentation in a much more organized way, using a kanban board or a mind map for example. It's also free.

      Excellent product which is on the right track. In my view the pricing is too high for this stage with 5 Euro/user/ month. G Suite costs 4 euro for it's vast service portfolio. For us a price point at 1 or 2 Euro would feel comfortable.

    • Nuclino definitely deserves to be as popular as Slack and Trello. Like Slack and Trello, Nuclino focuses on one task and does a brilliant job at it. I really hope this stays actively maintained!

    We use Quip at Product Hunt. The UX is clean and it does a better job of making it easy to organize docs and spreadsheets into folders, imo.

    If you need only text editing then try Dropbox Paper. It's lighter, you can create more complex layouts and embed any type of files (including music).

      Use Paper to manage technical stuff and my team, and love it. Just the right number of features, document crosslinking and image embedding fits my needs exactly, and works for quick notes or longer documents.

      Its a great tool for starters, For teams I do not recommend. there are lots of apps that do the same, even google docs is more intelligible when collaborating and working with. But we already have OneNote, Evernote, Word Online, with lots of features way ahead Paper.
