Fix some minor quirks in the LinuxServer.io docs
The current documents might end up confusing people and are not
completely accessible. This minor fixes should clear up the situation
and add alt texts to all badges, explain the links at the end of the
docs, and list LinuxServer.io in the supported provider section of the

Some reasoning on the change in the listing:
Since we maintain an own container image which is for sure kept updated
on release, this is our first listing, as well as general solutions that
are build on that image, like the K8s integration.

The next listings are integrated provides which allow self-hosting, like
Cloudron and I also consider LinuxServer.io as this kind of providers.
Which try to enable people to run CodiMD on their own hardware or rented
servers in a very easy way, but by using their own images.

As third category I would look at hosted offers, like Heroku, which are
not completely SaaS but far enough away from the self-hostability that
I consider them as an own category. PaaS-based solutions are not as
FOSS-style as we want our setups to be, but of course still supported.

Finally the manual setup. We keep it down here, because we support it,
but don't recommend it in general. It's hard to upgrade and can cause
problems when dependencies are not correctly updated or people don't run
the db migrations.

#CodiMD on matrix.org build status version POEditor Mastodon

CodiMD lets you create real-time collaborative markdown notes. You can test-drive it by visiting our CodiMD demo server.

It is inspired by Hackpad, Etherpad and similar collaborative editors. This project originated with the team at HackMD and now forked into its own organisation. A longer writeup can be read in the history doc.

CodiMD 1.3.2 with its feature demonstration page open

Installation / Upgrading

You can run CodiMD in a number of ways, and we created setup instructions for all of these:

If you do not wish to run your own setup, you can find a commercial offering at https://hackmd.io. This is not the same codebase as this one, but it is a very similar project.


Theres two main ways to configure your CodiMD instance: Config file or environment variables. You can choose what works best for you.

CodiMD can integrate with

  • facebook, twitter, github, gitlab, mattermost, dropbox, google, ldap, saml and oauth2 for login
  • imgur, s3, minio, azure for image/attachment storage (files can also be local!)
  • dropbox for export and import

More info about that can be found in the configuration docs above.
