Build Status

Sausagewiki is a simple, self-contained wiki engine.

Features

Some features of Sausagewiki, in no particular order:

  • Simple to install and run, no runtime dependencies
  • Reasonable to back up, there is only one data file
  • Can be reverse proxied behind any path without configuration
  • Snappy, light resource usage
  • Markdown syntax
  • Full text search
  • Responsive design: fits different screens as well as print
  • Progressive enhancement: works with or without JavaScript
  • Works with external authentication

Install and run

Sausagewiki aims to be simple to get up and running. It is distributed as a single independent executable for Linux:

  1. Download the latest build of sausagewiki.tar.xz from https://github.com/maghoff/sausagewiki/releases/latest
  2. Decompress: tar Jxf sausagewiki.tar.xz, it decompresses to the single Linux executable sausagewiki
  3. Run: ./sausagewiki wiki.db

For a more permanent installation, you could install Sausagewiki as a systemd service.

Alternative installation methods include the following:

Build from source with cargo build --release, producing the binary as target/release/sausagewiki. This requires you to have a working installation of rust.

Install with Homebrew on OS X/macOS: brew install --HEAD https://raw.githubusercontent.com/maghoff/sausagewiki/master/deploy/sausagewiki.rb (Some users are hitting rust issue #39870 with this brew formula, even though it is supposed to have been fixed)

Command line arguments

USAGE:
    sausagewiki [FLAGS] [OPTIONS] <DATABASE>

FLAGS:
    -h, --help              Prints help information
        --trust-identity    Trust the value in the X-Identity header to be an authenticated username.
                            This only makes sense when Sausagewiki runs behind a reverse proxy which
                            sets this header.
    -V, --version           Prints version information

OPTIONS:
    -a, --address <address>    Sets the IP address to bind to [default: 127.0.0.1]
    -p, --port <port>          Sets the listening port [default: 8080]

ARGS:
    <DATABASE>    Sets the database file to use

Sausagewiki will create an SQLite database file with the filename given in the DATABASE parameter and open an HTTP server bound to the configured address, <address>:<port>.
