Setup

If you're a NetBSD developer, you can commit to wikisrc. No setup. No web browser needed. For in-browser editing, just set a password first.

If you're not a NetBSD developer, tell us your OpenID.

Wikitext

Text is formatted in Markdown, with WikiLink and directive extensions. When editing in a browser, help is always available via a link below the textarea. Various templates are available as well.

To see what Markdown does with your input, there is Dingus (it's an external site) which also has a nice cheat-sheet for the Markdown-syntax.

Feel free to use the graphic chart as an example for your page. You are not forced to follow its layout, but it can help you to quickly design pages so that they look better integrated with the rest of the wiki.

To practice, you can play in the SandBox.

Your first page

If you're a developer, create a users page for yourself. It's your personal wiki space, and also lets you sign your discussion posts like so. --schmonz

What next

Write whatever you like, wherever you like. It's a wiki! Have fun. :-)
