django-wakawka is a super simple wiki system written in Python using the Django framework. A sample installation is available under:

Log in with the username admin and the password admin.


  1. Put wakawaka to your INSTALLED_APPS in your within your django project.
  2. Add (r'^wiki/', include('wakawaka.urls')), to your

That's all. Wakawaka has no other dependencies than Django 1.0 (or Django 1.1, currently known as trunk)

Private wiki: If you want to deploy a private wiki so that every page needs an login simply add this line (r'^wiki/', include('wakawaka.urls.authenticated')), to your instead of the above.


Wakawaka takes care of Django's permission system. Grant your users always a pair of wikipage and revision permissions either what they should do. (Adding, changing or deleting WikiPages)

Optional Configuration:

The name of your first wiki page is defined as WikiIndex. You can change this by adding a setting WAKAWAKA_DEFAULT_INDEX to your Example:


Words that are written in CamelCase (a pair of one upper letter followed by n lower letters) are automatically treated as internal wiki links. You can change this behaviour by adding a setting WAKAWAKA_SLUG_REGEX to your This holds a regular expression of the wiki name format. Default:

WAKAWAKA_SLUG_REGEX = r'((([A-Z]+[a-z]+){2,})(/([A-Z]+[a-z]+){2,})*)'


Wakawaka does not provide the ability to store file attachments to wiki pages. To do so, have a look on the side project django-attachments which provides a unobstrusive way to add attachments to models.


v0.3: (2009-08-06):

  • If a wikipage was not found, the view now raises a proper Http404 instead of a (silent) HttpResponseNotFound. This gives you the ability to display a proper 404 page.
  • All templates are now translatable using gettext.

v0.2 (2009-07-22):

  • Edit-forms are now replaceable
