A modern, lightweight and powerful wiki app built on NodeJS

STABLE v1.x version

This repository is for the 2.0 BETA of Wiki.js.
It is highly recommended to use the 1.x version until a stable version of 2.0 is released. An easy and quick upgrade path will be provided to migrate from 1.x to 2.0.

👉 Go to version 1.x instead 👈

Version 2.0 should NOT be used in production! Once again, please use 1.x for now!

🚧 UNSTABLE v2.0 BETA version

This version is for testing and development purposes only! It is not ready for production and is still missing critical features. You cannot migrate 1.x data at this time!


Wiki.js is an open source project that has been made possible due to the generous contributions by community backers. If you are interested in supporting this project, please consider becoming a patron or donating to our OpenCollective.
