This is Elnode's Wiki. It is based on the {{{creole}}} wiki language
and is written completely in EmacsLisp.
+== What does it do? ==
+It does syntax coloring:
+##! emacs-lisp
+(defun elnode-wiki-handler (httpcon wikiroot)
+ "A low level handler for Wiki operations.
+Send the Wiki page requested, which must be a file existing under
+the WIKIROOT, back to the HTTPCON.
+Update operations are protected by authentication."
+ (elnode-method httpcon
+ (GET
+ (elnode-docroot-for wikiroot
+ with target-path
+ on httpcon
+ do
+ (if (equal target-path (expand-file-name (concat wikiroot "/")))
+ (elnode-wiki-page httpcon (concat wikiroot "/index.creole"))
+ (elnode-wiki-page httpcon target-path))))
+ (elnode-with-auth httpcon 'elnode-wiki-auth

+ (if (not (elnode-http-param httpcon "preview"))
+ ;; A save request in which case save the new text and then
+ ;; send the wiki text.

+ ;; Might be a preview request in which case send back the WIKI
+ ;; text that's been sent.
+ (with-temp-file "/tmp/preview"
+ (insert text))
+ (elnode-wiki-send httpcon "/tmp/preview" path)))))))
+It does links, for example to
+[[|Emacs Creole]] which is
+the Wiki render engine used to display pages.
+It does all the normal Wiki things like headings and lists.
+You can also do some special Emacs things, like org-mode tables:
+| Date | Amount | Description |
+| 2011-11-15 | 100.15 | Expensive lunch out |
+| 2011-11-18 | 7.30 | Dry cleaning |
+| 2011-11-21 | 22.50 | Takeaway curry |
+| | 129.95 | |
+#+TBLFM: @5$2=vsum(@I..@II)
+and lisp callouts:
+ (mapconcat
+ (lambda (s)
+ (format "* %s" s))
+ '("which" "eval" "lisp" "and" "render" "the" "results")
+ "\n")
+== Authentication ==
+By default, the Wiki uses an authentication database in the Emacs
+instance running Elnode and the Wiki server.
+If you want to add a user to the Wiki so you can edit pages you can do this in Emacs:
+M-x elnode-auth-user-add
+and it will ask you for a username and a password. The user will be
+stored in a persistent database.
+== Where the Wiki pages are ==
+By default the Elnode Wiki stores files in your {{{~/.emacs.d}}}
+directory which is actually defined by the variable
+{{{user-emacs-directory}}} in Emacs.
+There is normally a directory {{{elnode}}} in that directory which
+contains directories for the Web server document root and the Wiki.
+The location of the Wiki files can be configured though, try:
+M-x customize-variable [RET] elnode-wikiserver-wikiroot
+== More customization ==
+There are many other things in Elnode's Wiki that can be customized,
+including the header and footer. Use:
+M-x customize-group [RET] elnode-wikiserver [RET]
+There is more to do with the Elnode Wiki server because there is so
+much that Emacs can do.
