FAQ:

What is TWiki and why would I want to use it?

Answer:

TWiki is a variant of a Wiki. A Wiki is a piece of software that allows users to freely create and edit Web pages using any Web browser. A Wiki web-site looks like most others but has an edit button on every page. The best known example is wikipedia, an online-dictionary building collaboration.

There are many different types of Wiki, examples are: JaWiki (a small Java-Servlet based Wiki), phpwiki (a php based Wiki) and Confluence (a commercial Wiki written in Java).

The CERN IT chosen solution is called TWiki. This is a Perl based Wiki developed by Take Five and is GNU general public licensed software

TWiki allows a group of users to work together to create and edit documents for many uses including: To design and document software projects.

  • As a knowledge base and FAQ system.
  • For scheduling events by use of Calendar features.
  • As an internal message board.
  • To track issues (i.e. bugs) and features.
  • As a document management tool.
  • As a software archive.
  • To write and store the minutes of meetings.
