Discussion 2: Dokuwiki

Pierre Spring Podcast

This is a discussion recorded at the FrOSCamp Zürich in September 2010. Andreas Gohr and Anika Henke talked about the beginnings of DokuWiki and what differentiates it from other wikis.

I myself have used DokuWiki quite a lot. I feel like it’s the wiki that best suits my needs. As the name indicates, DokuWiki has put a focus at documenting things. I’ve use it to collect snippets of code over the years, to organize my travels, to write down ideas, ect. It’s the perfect digital notebook.

DokuWiki is very, very lightweight and has well thought event system in it’s core. This makes it super easy to modify pretty much any part of the wiki using a plugin. There is a massive amount of great plugins available on the DokuWiki Plugins Page.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve tried to write a WYSIWYG plugin for DokuWiki. A project I’ve never quite completed until recently. If you’re interested in trying it out, you could fork it on GitHub. It still needs a lot of work, so why not get involved?

Be sure to listen to the podcast and try out DokuWiki. It’s clean and simple! You will love it!
