What is BookStack?

It is a simple, self-hosted, easy-to-use platform for organising and storing information. It provides a pleasant and simple out-of-the-box experience. New users to an instance should find the experience intuitive and only basic word-processing skills should be required to get involved in creating content on BookStack. The platform should provide advanced power features to those that desire it but they should not interfere with the core simple user experience.
BookStack is a tool in the Knowledge Management category of a tech stack.
BookStack is an open source tool with 11.9K GitHub stars and 1.6K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to BookStack's open source repository on GitHub
