Hello.  I am effectively coding-illiterate but I'd like to start assembling a knowledge base of science protocols, methods, techniques etc.

I know there are Wiki's, but I've not found one to install onto a private domain that doesn't require a bit of coding expertise.

I don't like the feel of making it in Google Docs as I don't want one giant word document.

GitHub looks clean but with zero coding experience, I've never made much use of it.

I recently stumbled upon GitBook and Docusaurus and they both look interesting in making clean and easy looking knowledge databases.

How different are they from a traditional wiki? 

Can GitBook be hosted privately, ever, or will all the data always be on "GitHub's" servers?

Thank you, Dakota

Dakota,

https://www.zettlr.com/. Is a great one (it is not just for publications)

Local Wiki (with some options to share and hosting):

For the more text/code editor savvy:

Commercial products with good reputation and free plans:

Not tested but in a similar vein:

There are obviously a lot more, but that should get you started.

Hello, thank you Bjonnh for the comprehensive list.  With zero coding experience some of these things look difficult to implement  I like the look of Logseq, but it honestly looks identical to GitBook.

I'll try to give it a go and see where I end up.
