Wiki.js is an open source wiki application that provides excellent Markdown support. I’ve been impressed by the quality of this free software and recommend it to anyone interested in a wiki for personal or team use. Wiki.js is easy to use and provides a number of powerful configuration options, including the ability to enable Pandoc for converting between markup formats, like AsciiDoc, and settings for enabling and disabling various Markdown formatting options. It works well out of the box and rivals many propriety software offerings.
This is a web-based application that requires a database, so installation could be a bit of a headache depending on your familiarity with command line utilities. That said, this is an open source project with fantastic documentation and support. If you run into problems, you could probably file a GitHub issue or swing by the Wiki.js Slack workspace.
