I'm looking for a wiki package to power a small, private wiki I'm wanting to set up on my home server (Linux). I'd prefer something that is written in Python, but ultimately I need to have Markdown support. Any suggestions?

Give a look at MoinMoin and it's Markdown Parser.

There's more wiki engines written in Python Wiki: https://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonWikiEngines

Thanks. Looking at that page, Markdoc looks like my cup of tea. Unfortunately it's abandoned. Does anyone know if there any viable alternatives (even if they aren't in Python)? –  NOP Jul 29 '14 at 9:50
If you want something simple, there's DokuWiki with it's Markdown Plugin, but it's written in PHP –  dvm Jul 29 '14 at 11:56

MDWiki might meet your needs.

MDwiki is a CMS/Wiki completely built in HTML5/Javascript and runs 100% on the client. No special software installation or server side processing is required. Just upload the mdwiki.html shipped with MDwiki into the same directory as your markdown files and you are good to go!

It's under active development and seems worth a look. It doesn't (appear to) have any automatic indexing but other that it's meeting my needs.
