Zwiki is a powerful, innovative, wiki engine written in Python and based on the Zope web application server.

Zwiki keeps pages in a hierarchy, like an outliner, which helps to organize large amounts of content. Zwiki's user interface comes in two main flavours: standard and Plone, or it may be customized by site administrators.

The software supports a number of wiki markup styles, including MoinMoin, Structured text, reStructuredText, but allows also to edit pages in LaTeX or wysiwyg HTML. Zwiki can also co-exist with the Plone content management system.

Zwiki pages are by default stored in the ZODB object oriented database backend.

Zwiki is used in academic, business, community and personal sites.

 Zwiki 2.0b1

Free to download
