Wiki software with collaborative real-time editor

I'm looking for a Wiki software, knowledge base tool or something similar with the following features: * reading access for users without account can be configured * collaborative real-time editor for the content * basic wiki features like categories, markup or WYSIWYG, search bar etc. Open source is preferred but not a must. Especially the real time editor gives me headaches. The only software i know which has all these features is Confluence, but as i said i would prefer free software. Confluence also has tons of features which are useless for my usecase. Any other ideas?

    Slite

    The note app for teams

    Laure Albouy made this product
    Sounds like Slite could be an interesting alternative for you: real-time editor, read-only permissions & light-weight wiki features (WYSIWYG, note linking etc) — and it's all user-friendly and beautiful :)

      We've been using Slite for a few months and it finally solved our long research for the perfect knowledge sharing app :)

      The adoption by our team was impressive, and Slite makes our knowledge management a breeze

      We've been using Slite for few months, and we can't be more happy. Best benefit is that it's a perfect way to improve transparency inside our team and to onboard new teammates!

    Nuclino

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    It's basically a free, lightweight alternative to Confluence. Does the same job but faster and without the unnecessary clutter.

      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!

    I'd take a look at GitBook. It might cover most of your needs: - Made for documentation - Open source - Collaborative (desktop and web editor) - You're able to create categories (and use them as navigation) - Searchbar, markup... Here is an example: https://frontendmasters.com/book...

      If you have a project that entails many chapters or is organized in an outline format, this is super-helpful. I love Git Book. Totally underrated software.

      I used GitBook to collaborate with other authors on my book quite related to the subject, Docs Like Code (https://docslikecode.com). I loved the ebook output but for print I had to use additional tools.

    Corilla

    Collaborative documentation for software teams

    That's pretty much the use case we created Corilla to solve. We were technical writers and developers at Red Hat struggling with this same problem, and built a collaborative editor for our distributed colleagues, adding in version control, a unique "collections" mode, and even private and publish documentation hosting. All bundled to help you just get back to writing. We have plans to open source but are in the process of releasing a new kbase first. Always willing to help out Product Hunt family in the meantime.
