Self-Hosted Spotlight: Quartz

Meet Quartz, a digital garden (collection of notes and ideas organized by associations) based on the static site generator Hugo. Quartz provides an easy-to-use framework for documenting ideas (via Markdown) and connecting them through automatic backlinks, link previews, and local/global graphs (for visualized discovery). It supports LaTeX for scientific and mathematical documentation, togglable light and dark modes, and a string of integrations and features inspired by the popular notetaking application Obsidian.

Installation options include Docker or forking the GitHub repository and hosting it directly on GitHub Pages.
