I set out on a mission this week to find the perfect wiki, I had been completely on finding a dozen or so wikis and installing them in various fashions and trying out a feature/wish list hoping that I would find one that suited all my needs and as many Wants as I could get. I fell in love with mediawiki when I was in school to document all my projects, and keep track of my thoughts. But the lack of ACLs has sent me back to the great cloud to seek out an alternative.
Here were my requirements
Then as I started my search I found a little site that took all the fun out of it.
The search feature quickly narrowed my search down to these few wikis. I threw MediaWIki into the works just to keep a baseline for features I would gain or lose.
These are my finalists that I will be installing an playing with.
MoinMoin – was quickly discarded because it was written in python.
MediaWIki – I’ve heard rumors of an ACL plugin that would just barely give the amount of control needed.
