There are many alternatives listed here, but an in-depth comparison is needed in order to properly determine which one(s) fulfil the needed features best.

I've went ahead and created a spreadsheet in which people shall list the differences and the pros & cons of each, with respect to the community's needs (i.e. this is not a place to say X is better than Y just to say that Y sucks).

Feel free to comment on the document or here if you have any questions regarding the way of doing this comparison.

How do you put new content in the Wiki ? Update the page manually or do an export of some sort ?

Also, how to bring notes on cells in there ? I guess a list of "A2: blah" would do the job.

Someone's comment on another issue pointed out this useful link:

Thanks, I'll put that as a resource (and also use it to complete the document).

@Serphentas re: Wiki
You edit the page manually; you're given a chance to make a "commit message" when you save changes and there is a revision history where you can compare & then revert changes

@Serphentas re: notes into wiki, I think emb edding the page might accomplish that, or perhaps there's a convenient way to export them?

@bderiso We can export to PDF like so: GitHub alternatives - comparison - Sheet1.pdf

There's also ODS which we can easily edit. I think exporting to both formats is the way to go, so that we can easily view on the go (PDF) and easily edit the document (ODS).

What do you think ?

I really like working with markdown tables, but it started to get a bit unwieldy with the amount of info, so I assumed nobody else would want to mess with it.

I think the system you've set-up works well for now.

That means the PDF+ODS export ?
