A quick & dirty git-powered Sinatra wiki

branch: master
README.markdown

git-wiki: because who needs cool names when you use git?

git-wiki is a wiki that relies on git to keep pages' history and Sinatra to serve them.

I wrote git-wiki as a quick and dirty hack, mostly to play with Sinatra. It turned out that Sinatra is an awesome little web framework and that this hack isn't as useless as I first though since I now use it daily.

However, it is definitely not feature rich and will probably never be because I mostly use it as a web frontend for git, ls and vim.

If you want history, search, etc. you should look at other people's forks, especially al3x's one.

Install

The fellowing gems are required to run git-wiki:

Run with mkdir ~/wiki && (cd ~/wiki && git init) && ./run.ru -sthin -p4567 and point your browser at http://0.0.0.0:4567/. Enjoy!

Quotes

[...] the first wiki engine I'd consider worth using for my own projects.

Steve Dekorte

Oh, it looks like Git Wiki may be the starting point for what I need...

Tom Morris on "How to build the perfect wiki"

What makes git-wiki so cool is because it is backed by a git store, you can clone your wiki just like you could any other git repository. I’ve always wanted a wiki that I could a.) pull offline when I didn’t have access to the Internets and b.) edit (perhaps in bulk) in my favorite text editor. git-wiki allows both.

Cloning your wiki

Numerous people have written diff and merge systems for wikis; TWiki even uses RCS. If they used git instead, the repository would be tiny, and you could make a personal copy of the entire wiki to take on the plane with you, then sync your changes back when you're done.
