Looking for a wiki? Compare, compare!
« on: August 10, 2006, 01:33:39 AM »
I found this nifty online Wiki chooser/comparator/advisor yesterday while researching a wiki for a couple projects I'm working on. It's has detailed feature breakdowns and matrices for 61 wikis, with a wide range of features, platforms, requirements, and licenses. I thought it surely must be useful to someon else!

It is not an exhaustive list, shown by the fact that it is missing PMwiki for one thing. But it is pretty remarkably inclusive nonetheless. And all this just goes to show: there are too many damn wiki apps out there! :D

Actually PMWiki is on the site ... http://www.wikimatrix.org/show/PmWiki

Strangely I couldn't see wikipedia listed ??

Edit ... 'cos I'm stupid and it is called MediaWiki (which I did know before I went senile)

Here is a comparative chart I made which includes PMWiki and MediaWiki (plus some others I had heard of) ...

CMS Matrix:  :huh: Wow, that's a lot of damn CMS's, lol. Hell, is it even possible to reasonably compare them all. :P Useful tools nonetheless. I'm glad someone is doing this.
