Rwtxt looks like a nice, simple, markdown-based, easily self-hostable, open-source, personal notes wiki. Nice work! If there are others that more or less match this description (self-hosted, open-source, private notes repository), I'd be interested.
EDIT: grammar hurts
Edit: Not to attack the poster. The poster is following societal convention, basically.
Nice. Wish more of the web was still like this, really...
If I could make one request, refactor the code a bit so that I could import it as a lib and use it on my own configured Go HTTP server. All that code in the main package is not very reusable if, say, I wanted to serve this as a net/http.Handler in a separate path.
Maybe I'll send a PR this weekend :)
Now we'll find out if schollz is receptive :D
I love that feeling when something collaborative is brand new and everyone is testing the waters.
However, if you really want private stuff, use a domain. Someone could still guess the URL of stuff on the public domain.
My own setup is a NextCloud-storage directory hierarchy where I write notes using MDWiki . This lets me continue recording my thoughts even when I'm offline.
I appreciate you sharing your solution too - its very clever!

I was thinking about doing something similar to this recently, but with different names:
Captain's Log and Captains Blog
You'd toggle Captain's Blog, which would forward it on to a configured static page generator and display it for you.
It works great, but watch out for those public pages. It's wide open to spam presently.
It's nice and no frills, though.
In the future I'd just like to replace it with server-side highlighting.
I've reworked my website/blog (vuejs) completely using a similar minimalistic approach.
At least this one works well on text browsers, and pages load fast without the need for a spinner.
Yeah, it's archived now. But it's essentially the same software but doesn't... even credit the concept of wikis in any way? It seems quite bad to not credit wikis in any way here.
Yeah this new service is definitely a wiki.
I do write text, our information is mostly textual. But I need it manageable, organize with file taxonomy, structure taxonomy and full-text/fuzzy search. Something like org-mode. Something that I can post on the web if I like, but certainly not such a limited notebook.
Sorry, IMVHO many create applications just to write them, not to really use them nor to reason about a task they want to solve/automatize efficiently.
