# Welcome to Gitit!
-Gitit is a [Wiki] written in [Haskell]. [HAppS] is used for the web

+Gitit is a wiki program written in Haskell. It uses [HAppS][] for the
+web server and [pandoc][] for markup processing. Pages and uploaded
+files are stored in a [git][] or [darcs][] repository and may be modified either
+by using the VCS's command-line tools or through the wiki's web interface.
+By default, pandoc's extended version of markdown is used as a markup language,
+but reStructuredText can also be used. Pages can be exported in a
+number of different formats, including LaTeX, RTF, OpenOffice ODT, and
+MediaWiki markup. Gitit can be configured to display TeX math (using
+[jsMath][]) and highlighted source code (using [highlighting-kate][]).
You can edit this page by double-clicking on it, or by clicking on the
"edit" tab at the top of the screen.
