I’ve been searching out the perfect wiki engine lately, and while I have been lucky enough to have settled on DokuWiki because it’s simple, pretty and works… except that it’s really not all that pretty once you try putting anything other than technical documentation into it. I’m actually trying to run a whole website from within DokuWiki. It’s working very well, has reduced my webmaster duties a lot because I can hand out user accounts and don’t have to fiddle with repetitive HTML at all anymore… but it’s really pissing off the form-before-function people. So I’ve found WiClear which is really good looking but has a pretty crappy wiki engine inside.
And so off to add templating to DokuWiki… Bug #104.
