Not your average markdown wiki!

Start with a simple wiki and use Markdown and Bootstrap to create good-looking, interactive websites, easily.

Dynamic | self-evolving structure

The wiki advantage: no need to plan ahead or spend time designing: your website or app takes shape in real-time, as you add content or link to content not yet created. It's not a challenge to fix mistakes and add content online, as users peruse your existing content!

Interactive | domain driven

Add mods from the growing library, to have interactivity added to your website... blogs, posts, forums, news feeds, twitter etc.

Progress to creating a custom domain model and have your app automatically adapt.

Embed it | simple content creation

Use markdown to create simple dynamic wikis. Include them in your website, as documentation or help pages etc.

You can use the same engine that powers this website and embed the same content in your offline or firewalled app. Using the API and Javascript clients, you can also embed in Node apps or Angular or others, see Embed the wiki engine.
