      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.
