mmmWiki - Wiki Engine/Software (and online filesystem)
Most characteristic features (whether good or bad)
- No distributed management (like mediawiki). More like: one (1) "dictatorial" administrator can decide whether a page should be visible resp editable by others. The admin has total control and can detect any edit on multiple sites and can easily revert any edit.
- Is this non-democratic? No I don't think so, since it is supposed to be easy to set up a new wiki, visitors (editors) who feels misunderstood or rebuffed should be able to set up their own wiki or blog (or write their opinion in the comments).
- One might say that this software is a bigger threat (competitor) to blogs/blog-software than to mediaWiki.
- Running on Node.js
- Database: mongodb, (Unmaintained version with Mysql and Neo4j also exist (Neo4j requires more RAM))
- Mediawiki-style syntax. See also: What wiki syntax to use
Features also found on MediaWiki
"Selling points" (The good stuff)
- Smooth fast editing/updating. (Especially for the admin)
- Multiple wikis (domains, (namespaces)) on a single implementation.
- Pretty much all the page is left to the designer of the page, no forced left-column etc. If you really want a left-column then see more at Multicolumn wiki
- Admin tools. The button to enter the admin tools () is hidden by default. To toggle its appearance: open and close the editView (click ✎ then backing) 3 times within 10 seconds.
- Elaborate File manager (Page/image lists)
- Backing up: Upload/download all pages/images/meta-data to your local computer as files packed in zip-folders.
- Embed monitoring with iframes on your favorite page: Monitor multiple wikis
- Read/write access can be set on each page.
- When renaming a page or image, the wiki texts of the parents are scanned for links / image-urls and renamed.
"Drawbacks" (The bad stuff)
- No user accounts, only two hardcoded passwords:
- "admin-read password", for reading read-protected pages.
- "admin-write password" for doing administrative things (like writing to write protected pages).
- No nested templates (No templates in the templates)
- No text search.
- Chrome OK
- Firefox OK
- Opera OK
- Safari: OK
- UC Browser: Read only (last tested 2017)
The app itself usually requires between 50-100 MB after running for a while.
The database and operating system (linux) also requires some memory of course.
The mongodb version should be able to run on 512MB
The mysql version can run on 512MB if you tweak the mysql a bit (google how to run mysql with little ram)
The neo4j version can run on 1GB ram (but probably not on 512MB)
- External links of different kinds: http://example.com , mylink.
- Internal links: blabla
- Interwiki links. Ex: oak, oak
- Tables. See also: tables in nested lists
- Image examples
- Image gallery (with slide show).
- Templates: HELLO WORLD
- The iframe-tag can be used if the "Allow others to edit this page"-checkbox is unclicked;
- nowiki - tag (no wikitranslation + encoding of html special characters (
- The video-tag can be used. Ex: Video
- Two trailing spaces (before a newline) inserts a
<p/>-tag (similar to GFM)
