TWiki

- Enterprise Wiki Platform

IMPORTANT: the Twiki project has ended and this appliance will be deprecated. v14.2 is the final release and will be replaced by Foswiki (a fork of Twiki) in the next release.

TWiki is a structured wiki, typically used to run a collaboration platform, knowledge or document management system, a knowledge base, or team portal. Users can create wiki applications using the TWiki Markup Language, and developers can extend its functionality with plugins.
