However, it is quite possible it is not the right tool for you. There are hundreds of wiki-engines out there, and many of them are far more powerful and bristling with features than Monkey Wiki will ever be. I wrote it to fulfil a specific requirement, and the priorities and omissions I have made are deliberate.
Here are some of the cirumstances in which you would not want Monkey Wiki:
- If you envisage your wiki becoming very large (thousands of pages)
- If you require versioned pages available to all users
- If you require page locking for edits (important if it is a busy wiki)
- If you want very rich formatting features - e.g. tables, maths functions, Free Links etc
- If you want built-in access control (though you could easily roll your own in conjunction with Monkey Wiki)
- If you want to extend the wiki software but do not use Python
The sort of situation in which it would be suitable might run something like this:
- You want maximum control over the way the wiki looks - not only with a site-wide boiler-plate, but down to individual pages and actions.
- You want a reasonably well-featured wiki (Site Search, Site Map, Backsearch, Rename etc) but with a slim enough feature-set not to frighten the horses.
- You want the wiki markup itself to be simple - emphasising content rather than frills - so that even non-technical users find it easy.
- You want a wiki-engine to play with and modify - it is written in Python and should be quite easy to understand (though I haven't got around to much code commenting yet)
- You need to install your wiki on a rented virtual server, and have restricted rights on that computer.
- You envisage the wiki being relatively small and quiet (though I run one with well over 1000 pages with no trouble).
- You want all backup pages sent to you as edits are made. (Of course these could be sent to a mailing list of fellow maintainers).
