Not free but open-source and I thought quite an interesting alternative for documentation sites for those that like Ghost:
And some other interesting related themes from the same author:
Couple be an option for those that prefer markdown, like Ghost and not found satisfaction with other Wiki/Documentation platforms.
@jdaviescoates Sure, personally I happen to like Ghost a lot for it's maturity and just-works setup, where there's nothing really to go wrong given there's no plugins, and a reasonable theme can cover presentation style needs.
I can imagine onboarding to multiple Ghost instances a little easier for training than a bunch of different apps. Just a left-field option for those looking for something for documentation, knowledgebase, sub-domain sites etc.
I'll always prefer anything that uses markdown interpreters for content, just less to go wrong and good for formatting consistency without worrying about cleaning copy/paste html etc.
@robi My understanding of these platforms is that the plugins & themes inherit the licence of the parent platform?
Personally, as a user, I don't care for whether source-code is publicly published or not, just that, as a paying customer in good faith, that we can review, fork and adapt it to needs if necessary, and that there's nothing obfuscated or compiled without the source available. So, maybe my definition of open-source differs, I have no idea, just that I term it as the opposite to closed-source software with usage restrictions.
Frankly, if anyone puts artificial limitations on any software we rely on, we go to whatever lengths it takes to decompile and remove those for our own usage, since we're not reselling, and simply knowingly invalidating support and warranties to ensure our ongoing bought & paid-for usage.
Anyone that complies and obfuscates source-code we rely on for business deserves to have it decompiled as far as I'm concerned for unnecessarily wasting our time. Thankfully, it's quite rare though.
@robi We actually did this for all the translation stuff we did with Wordpress. Took a developer 2 months of recreating variable names from numbers and other gymnastics but the end result was a vastly superior system and now open-sourced publicly for those that can find it.
I won't name names as the WP plugin world is full of hype exceeding quality but I see value in usage and support, the should be as free as the free code we were fortunate enough to be able to build on in the first instance.
There's not a person on the planet that doesn't benefit in some way from free open-source code, so I just see it as a social contract and love to step outside with anyone that interfere's with progress
That's not OSS
I think in regards to this Docuhub theme you are correct. I don't see anything about it being open source and so am confused as to why @marcusquinn described it as such.
But with regards to things like StudioPress themes IncSub plugins etc, it's perfectly feasible (and in the WordPress world very common) for people to charge for open source programs. There is nothing in the definitions of Free Software nor Open Source definitions that says you can't do this.
