---++ TWiki is a Web-based collaboration tool * A TWiki site is an easy-to-use, satisfying open communication environment where... * people anywhere on the Internet can meet, * share rich Web text, images, online multimedia, * do it all through a regular Web browser. ---+++ TWiki is written in Perl... TWiki's parsing engine reads a text file, hyperlinks it, and converts it to standard HTML, on the fly. The point is to: * make editing text extremely simple (to see how simple, click on *Edit* link at the bottom of the page) * and to let you find information fast ([[WebSearch][WebSearch]]). In addition to being quick, %WIKITOOLNAME% aspires to the Zen ideals known as WabiSabi. Zen finds beauty in the imperfect and ephemeral. When it comes down to it, that's all you need. %WIKITOOLNAME% is one of many WikiWikiClones; the first Wiki was built by Wiki:WardCummingham, https://c2.com/. ---+++ "TWiki" stands for... * _Wiki wiki_ means "quick" in Hawaiian. They call the shuttle at Honolulu Airport the wiki wiki bus. Which is where the original Wiki Wiki Web got its name. * _TWiki_ is short for _TakeFive Wiki_ . (It was later found that _Twiki_ is the name of a robot in a <a href="https://www.buck-rogers.com/" target="_blank">Buck Rogers</a> TV show from 1979. That's his head.) ---+++ Selected TWiki Topics... * TWikiEnhancementRequests is the place where you can add your enhancement requests. * TWikiPlannedFeatures has a list of planned features for upcoming TWiki versions. * TWikiHistory shows TWiki's implementation history. * TWikiDocumentation is the implementation documentation. * TWikiAdministration tells you how to do administrative stuff, like renaming or deleting a topic. * WikiCulture talks about the unique type of collaboration Wiki systems offer. * WikiReferences has links to articles and books around collaboration and the Wiki technology in particular. <blockquote> *Note:* %WIKITOOLNAME% automatically signs new pages with your WikiName in case %WIKITOOLNAME% is running on an intranet where you log in. In case your %WIKITOOLNAME% installation does not authenticate users, %WIKITOOLNAME% does not know about usernames, and all contributors become Main.TWikiGuest. </blockquote> TWiki is trademarked to Peter Thoeny, originator and lead developer. * TWiki's home is at https://twiki.org/ * Source code is available upon request, see https://twiki.org/download.html * WelcomeGuest is a basic instant guide to TWiki. * This %WIKITOOLNAME% version is *%WIKIVERSION%*.
