Re: Web site script

I love DokuWiki, and I shamelessly promote it whenever I get a chance.

I've used it for personal notebooks, composing documentation, and building 
my public web site ( 

DokuWiki is built on PHP with very few external requirements. All live data 
is stored in text files, and old versions are gzipped diffs. An indexer 
passively keeps an index in a binary file, but other than that it is all 
text and no mysql or other database engine. So it's really easy to hack, 
script, and port your content! 

The little bits of the code that I've looked are are pretty clean, and it's 
relatively easy to write plugins. (Many plugins have been written.) The only 
real complaint I have is that the default page design template sucks, and 
there aren't any really stellar third party templates available. I never got 
around to fixing that problem for myself.
