It's a while since the last time this was asked:

Is there any wiki written in Ruby which is alive and is backed by more
than just one developer?

I'm looking for a replacement for MediaWiki, the markup there is getting
increasingly annoying. No need for fancy features, I'm only using 5% of
what MediaWiki could do.

There's very little. I did a survey not long ago, and Instiki's still
the best, most reliable. I've used it in several settings for several
years. It's fine. I don't know why there isn't more. I guess most folks
who want wikis don't care what language it's in.

Hey,

thought I would mention Git-Wiki

them.
-- git-wiki page

In that case, take a look at Nanoki, a simple, elegant wiki engine
implemented in Lua.

Online demo:

Could you please explain what's annoying in MediaWiki's syntax? Or give
an example? What's "increasing" about its syntax? MediaWiki's syntax
isn't changing, thanks to its templating abilities.

Sorry if this is an extremely naive question, but do (shared) hosts
readily support Lua now?  I'm just starting to dip my toe into Lua, so
I'm wondering.

Cheers,

Not sure, but try the Lua mailing list where someone might know more
about this:
