This is my personal wiki which is running under gollum
How set up your own wiki
Gollum is a great Git-powered wiki with a nice and shiny frontend. To set it up to running under pow there are just a few steps needed.
First create a new directory for your new wiki and create an empty git repository in it.
$ mkdir ~/wiki $ cd ~/wiki $ git init
Use rvm to create a gemset to keep all together and isolated.
$ rvm gemset create wiki $ echo 'rvm <your-ruby-version>@wiki' > .rvmrc
Get bundler and create a new gemfile
$ gem install bundler
Into the gemfile you put:
source "http://rubygems.org" gem 'gollum' gem 'powder' # a great pow cli
Install the gems
$ bundle install # ([more info](http://gembundler.com/bundle_install.html))
Create a config.ru file with the following content
require "gollum/frontend/app" Precious::App.set(:gollum_path, File.dirname(__FILE__)) Precious::App.set(:wiki_options, :base_path => File.expand_path('~/wiki')) run Precious::App
If you want to have your wiki posts in a different branch than the master branch, just add the following to the wiki options
Precious::App.set(:wiki_options, :refs => 'your_branch_name')
If you not already have installed pow just run
$ powder install
Ready to take off, run powder and your in!
$ powder # Your application is now available at http://wiki.dev/
