TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library



Wiki Engine

MoinMoin is an easy to use and extensible Wiki engine implemented in Python with a large community of users. MoinMoin's storage mechanism are flat files and folders, rather than a database. This makes it easy to manipulate the content in a text editor on the server if necessary, including managing revisions if the wiki gets attacked by spammers.
