WiGit: A Git-based Wiki

About

WiGit is a simple Wiki written in PHP, using Git as a backend for tracking changes. Besides Git, this wiki makes use of Textile for marking up text.

Features

  • Very simple and light
  • Easily customizable using themes
  • Extensive syntax for marking up text (using Textile)
  • Full history tracking support
  • Basic support for users/authors, by using the HTTP authentication headers to extract the user.
  • Support for pretty URLs (using URL rewriting)

Requirements

  • Webserver
  • PHP 5.3.2
  • Git

Installation

  • Put the WiGit dir in some place where the webserver can find it
  • Make sure there's a data subdir, and that it is writable by the webserver
  • Optionally: In directory etc copy config.php.sample to config.php, and edit config.php to reflect your local settings
  • Surf to the wigit URL, and you should start by editing the front page

For URL rewriting, change the script_url to be the base URL prefix (as is shown in the config file), and add the necessary URL rewrite rules for your webserver. E.g.,

  • For Apache, add the following to .htaccess in your wigit install dir:

    RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /wigit/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule (.*) /wigit/index.php [QSA,L]

  • For lighttpd, add the following to your config file:

    url.rewrite-once = ( "^/wigit/themes/(.)" => "$0", "^/wigit(.)" => "/wigit/index.php", )

(where /wigit is replaced by your own base url)

For user support, configure your webserver to require authentication for the wigit install dir. E.g.

  • For Apache, add the following to .htaccess in your wigit install dir:

    AuthType Basic AuthName "My WiGit" AuthUserFile /path/to/passwords/file Require valid-user

  • For lighttpd, add the following to your config file:

    auth.backend = "htdigest" auth.backend.htdigest.userfile = "/path/to/htdigest/file" auth.require = ( "/wigit" => ( "method" => "digest", "realm" => "My WiGit", "require" => "valid-user", ) )
