A wiki engine powered by Django and Git

This project contains python-django-waliki package and all dependencies it needs to build and run on Fedora.

Waliki is an extensible wiki app for Django with a Git backend.

At a glance, Waliki has these features:

* File based content storage.
* UI based on Bootstrap and CodeMirror
* Version control and concurrent edition for your content using git
* An extensible architecture through plugins
* reStructuredText or Markdown support, configurable per page (and it's easy to add extensions)
* A very simple per slug ACL system
* A nice attachments manager (that respects the permissions over the page)
* Realtime collaborative edition via togetherJS
* Wiki content embeddable in any django template (as a "dummy CMS")
* Few helpers to migrate content (particularly from MoinMoin, using moin2git)
* It works with Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 or PyPy in Django 1.6 or newer

It's easy to create a site powered by Waliki using the preconfigured project which is the same code that motorize the demo.

Waliki was inspired in Github's wikis, but it tries to be a bit smarter than many others git backed wiki engines at handling changes: instead of a hard "newer wins" or "page blocking" approaches, Waliki uses git's merge facilities on each save. So, if there was another change during an edition and git can merge them automatically, it's done and the user is notified. If the merge fails, the last edition is still saved but the editor is reloaded asking the user to fix the conflict.
