I happy with my only Squeak solution for a personal/sharing swiki.
But people on external to Smalltalk world uses another tools.
 Some exploration show React is popular this days so searching some not
complicate wiki made with it.
I was able to made with https://docusaurus.io/en/
It uses .md files for serving to web.
How you convert http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak to lots of .md ?
Not so easy
I found https://pandoc.org/  which seems a wonderful tool to have
But unlucky us only works with utf-8  and not ISO-8859-1

curl --silent http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1 | pandoc --from html --to
markdown_strict -o 1.md
UTF-8 decoding error in - at byte offset 7466 (92).
The input must be a UTF-8 encoded text.

Some more work and pandoc -f html -t markdown 1.html -o 1.md made a readable
Still have some to rip, but is usable
I dedicate the week end to have the complete .md documents.
Feedback ?
