The easier and faster way to use git-wiki is the "skeleton" method.
You don't need to install anything locally!
Simply fork/clone skeleton repo or click on "Use this template" button to create your copy of the skeleton project.
Edit _config.yml and other pages as you need and then deploy it on github/gitlab pages.
Done! now wait that your page will be published and you're ready to wiki!
- Improvements in the cooperative aspect: forks, pull-requests and roles.
- You can customize your wiki as you want with style sheets and even changing the layout. (see customization section below)
