Wiki Design


I want to create my own wiki, but am looking for a good tool to do so. Any ideas?

I use Linux Mint (with Cinnamon) if that matters.

Hello

Don't know if you've checked it out already, but Bluefish is a very nice programming / web development tool. If you don't like it, many programmers use vi/vim, gedit, kwrite, or scite for their coding efforts.

Why re-invent the wheel? Just install MediaWiki and run.
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual...Wiki_on_Ubuntu

If you are looking to program your own wiki then you might look at the source code for ScrewTurn Wiki. That one is written in C# and only runs on Windows servers but it is fantastic and you could easily do a Linux port.

I also don't understand what you want to do:
-write a php (or other) code to create a wiki application
-use one of the existing wiki platforms (dokuwiki, mediawiki) to populate it with information of your choice
???
If the second one, I recommend dokuwiki:

YES, I DO...Want to Create a Brand-New Wiki using an existing Wiki Platform.

So Far, I have two Recommendations, I think:

2) DokuWiki


Other platforms or apps to cr

Have a look at this site:
http://www.wikimatrix.org/

Having said that, too much choice is not always good the two recommendations above are very popular so why don't you give them a try and then stick to the one you like more.
