Annotation of wikisrc/wiki/todo/choose_wiki_software.mdwn, revision 1.2

1.1       wiki        1: Requirements for an official NetBSD wiki:
                      3: * **UI:** pleasant web editing with preview and diff
                      4: * **appearance:** customizable with CSS and templates
                      5: * **access control:** publicly readable, editable by developers only, an area readable by developers only
                      6: * **web authentication:** Kerberos
                      7: * **implementation language:** not PHP
                      8: * **revision control:** yes, preferably not something homegrown, even more preferably CVS
                      9: * **page rendering strategy:** compiles static pages that can be mirrored
                     11: Before selecting [ikiwiki](, I evaluated the following:
                     13: [[!table data="""
                     14: Software|Language|Versioning|Comments
                     15: [Sputnik](|Lua|git or filesystem|looks cool
                     16: [Foswiki](|Perl|RCS|fork of TWiki, complex install docs, complex software, checkered security history
                     17: [Kwiki](|Perl|don't remember|old version was so-so, the ambitious rewrite never happened
                     18: [MojoMojo](|Perl|SQL|featureful
                     19: [MoinMoin](|Python|filesystem| 
                     20: """]]
                     22: In my opinion, ikiwiki is the best fit: written in Perl, with a simple web UI and several ways of restricting access, it not only renders arbitrary hierarchies of static pages, but also is designed to be used in concert with a variety of external revision control systems.
