Hi Solomon.

I did not contribute to Rockbox wiki so far, so by all means feel free
to give more weight to opinions of those who did…

I finally dug into starting my new webpage with a static site generator
and I have chosen Hugo. It is blazing fast. But it also has been
challenging to get some things about the them I created from scratch
just as I wanted them to be.

I also worked with and know Dokuwiki. It appeared to be pretty light
weight and flexible to me. Back then when I last used it, due to missing
database, renaming a page could break links, but maybe that has been
fixed by now.

I believe both can work. And I agree something like Dokuwiki would mean
a lower entry bar.
