You may know of the new, open source, vocal server VocPrez , well a new version of it is now in production for the Geological Survey of Queensland delivering 60+ vocabularies: https://vocabs.gsq.digital/vocabulary/ . VocPrez can deliver vocabs sources from a number of sources - files, RVA, a SPARQL endpoint etc. and it can be themed to match an organisation’s branding. Work on VocPrez is on-going so if you need a vocab server, check it out!
Some of you may know about the ontology documentation tool pyLODE . Like VocPrez, it is based on the recently updated open source Python RDF manipulation library RDFlib . pyLODE has been used to document a number of Australian government ontologies, such as AGRIF .
pyLODE now has the abilities to:
* document a SKOS vocab like it does ontologies - by producing static HTML. e.g.s at 
* extract a SKOS hierarchy from an ontology, e.g.s at 6
You may find these features helpful when designing SKOS vocabs as you can “see” them and their metadata this way, without needing to use a vocab server. See the pyLODE documentation on profiles  for how to do this.
