Vimwiki immediately comes to my mind. It has nice syntax highlighting in
Vim; supports most common markup such as bold, italic, 6 (?) levels of
headers, quotes, lists, code blocks etc; It also supports linking to
other pages, to external pages, to pages in other wiki's, to files etc.
Vimwiki supports multiple syntaxes (default, markup, wikipedia). When
using the default syntax you can easily export the entire wiki to HTML.
It also let's you use your custom html template for that.
I have been using vimwiki for a few years now to take notes and I really
like how easy it is. Although I don't export to HTML, since I always
read it in Vim.
