   The wiki built on Windows Azure 

Try Muon out (read only): http://muon.azurewebsites.net

Features

  1. Directly upload/download content from Azure Storage, allowing high scale at low cost.
  2. Integrates with twitter for authentication.
  3. Allow public read/write access, or limit access to selected users.
  4. Use markdown to edit articles.
  5. Ideal for small teams collaborating on documentation.
  6. It's really fast and simple!

Installation instructions

Prerequisites:

The application will use Twitter to authenticate users (unless you choose to make the wiki fully public read/write access). You will need to sign up for a twitter developer account, and register an application. Your application key and secret can then be used for Muon.

1. Create a storage account in Windows Azure

You can either do this in the Portal, or using the command line:

azure account storage create --location "North Europe" THE_NAME_OF_YOUR_STORAGE_ACCOUNT

2. Create a website

You can either do this in the Portal, or using the command line. You must enable Git publishing.

azure site create NAME_OF_YOUR_WEBSITE --git --location "North Europe"

3. Deploy the website

Use git to clone Muon, and publish it to your website:

git clone https://github.com/richorama/muon.git
cd muon
git remote add azure https://NAME_OF_YOUR_WEBSITE.scm.azurewebsites.net/NAME_OF_YOUR_WEBSITE.git
git push azure master

4. Configure Muon

Muon uses a number of app settings to configure the permissions and settings. You can create these on the command line or enter them into the Portal:

setlocal
set site=NAME_OF_YOUR_WEBSITE

azure site config add storageaccount=THE_NAME_OF_YOUR_STORAGE_ACCOUNT %site%
azure site config add storagekey=YOUR_STORAGE_KEY %SITE%
azure site config add readers=* %site%
azure site config add editors=* %site%
azure site config add twitterkey=TWITTER_APP_KEY %site%
azure site config add twittersecret=TWITTER_APP_SECRET %site%

The setting are as follows:

storageaccount : The name of your window Azure Storage Account

storagekey : The key for your window Azure Storage Account

readers : * to allow public read access, otherwise a comma separated list of twitter usernames for read access

editors : * to allow public write access, otherwise a comma separated list of twitter usernames for write access

twitterkey : The key for an app you have registered in twitter (only required if you don't have * for editors and readers)

twittersecret : The secret for an app you have registered in twitter (only required if you don't have * for editors and readers)

The portal should look something like this:
