TWiki - Open Source Enterprise Wiki Platform for Download

TWiki is a flexible, powerful, and easy to use enterprise wiki, enterprise collaboration platform and knowledge management system. It is a Structured Wiki, typically used to run a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, or any other groupware tool, on an intranet or on the internet. TWiki looks and feels like a normal Intranet or Internet web site. However it also has a Edit link at the bottom of every topic (web page), everybody can change a topic or add content by just using a browser.

Web content can be created collaboratively by using just a browser. Users without programming skills can create web applications. Developers can extend the functionality of TWiki with Plugins. TWiki fosters information flow within an organization; lets distributed teams work together seamlessly and productively; and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content.

TWiki is GPLed software. The Perl CGI source code, templates and documentation is available for free.

Requirements: Perl CGI Supported Server
Demo: http://twiki.org/

  • Actually, few days ago I tried to look into this wiki, and the one major setback was the complexity of install. It required way advanced (to me) knowledge of shell account, command lines, and configuration. Alternative is to look for a hosted Twiki, but that doesn’t help those who want to host themselves. I chose PBWiki right now for my team….for the time-being.

  • Interesting article…thanks for this. And yes would gladly share it to my colleagues.

  • I myself have found that most of the wiki based softwares are very complex to both install and manage for the average person.

    What we need is a Microsoft OneNote style wiki program that works just as simply as it does.

    Just my two cents worth
