The CitiWiki fork was created since we envision substantial code changes will be made to the original WakkaWiki for our research and experimentation. You could take a look at WikiDev to find out more on some of our development details. We plan to make CitiWiki source code available to the general public.
CLiki is a collaborative web authoring system based on the concepts of wiki, but with different, more lisp-friendly Text Formatting rules.
CLiki is a collaborative system: if you have added or edited content on it, please feel free to list yourself as having a relationship to it on our home page.

This Wiki is done using JSP technology, which hopefully makes it very easy to keep up to date, since the content and the presentation are separated. For the administrator it is easy to make your Wiki look any way you want. A custom bean handles the translation of text into HTML. The source code for JSPWiki is available. "
Wikipedia and its sister Wikimedia projects run on the same GPL-ed free software, called MediaWiki or Software Phase III. It was switched from UseModWiki software ("Phase I") to new software, written especially for Wikipedia using the PHP programming language, on January 25, 2002 ("Phase II"), which was replaced by what is now called MediaWiki in June 2002. "
Installation of PhpWiki is as simple as untarring the source distribution. PhpWiki works right out of the box. You will want to make configuration changes later for better performance and permanence, or to run PhpWiki off a relational database like MySQL, mSQL or Postgresql.
pikipiki is a cooperative authoring system for the web. It is written in Python, with a strong emphasis on small, simple code: the current version is about 580 lines of commented code."
Their website documents Pikie Pikie and is itself an example of such a collaborative hypertext environment as it is driven by the development version of Pikie Pikie."

'Among other things, TWiki eases one of the concerns about classic Wiki, which is that the radically egalitarian "edit this page" scheme leaves no change log. TWiki includes powerful revision support. Every change leaves a footprint, and you can follow these easily and effectively.' (Jon Udell)"
Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.
Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.
Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users."
