What's a Wiki

A wiki is software that allows registered users or anyone to collaboratively create, edit, link, and organize the content of a website, usually for reference material. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. These wiki websites are often also referred to as wikis; for example, Wikipedia is one of the best known wikis. Wikis are used in businesses to provide affordable and effective intranets and for Knowledge Management. Ward Cunningham, developer of the first wiki, WikiWikiWeb, originally described it as "the simplest online database that could possibly work"

Some examples

  • It's easy to create a list:
    • Start every line with a star.
      • More stars means deeper levels.
        • A newline in a list marks the end of a list item.
  • An empty line starts a new list.
