Recommendations for a Rails based Wiki, preferably with bidi

We are going to deploy a Wiki system for a medium load website. Any
recommended Rails-based options?

The Wiki doesn’t have to be feature-rich. It can be simple, but should
be elegant and easily extendable, as the people who are going to use it
are mostly hackers.

The only special requirement is that it would have decent bidi support
(for Hebrew pages). But if you know a good Wiki codebase answering the
above description, we might extend it to support bidi by ourselves.

Cheers,

Rails has a generator called SQLiki, but I haven’t used it yet (perhaps
you can answer my post wrote at http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/85409)
You can find the generator on page:
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/SQLiki

Hi Damaris

Yes, you do need to create the database and three tables - pages,
drafts, and links - for the generator to be usable.

The instructions - including complete SQL sequences for creating said
tables - are inside the Gem file, which is just a TAR with a fancy name
:slight_smile:

You will find the README inside the Gem, in a file called data.tar.gz,
inside a subdirectory called templates.

I hope it works for you, to me it looks like a nice way to add some
Wiki features to an existing Rails application. It doesn’t appear, nor
aspire to be, a standalone Wiki package like Instiki. And it’s
self-designated to be alpha. So, not exactly what I’m looking for.

Lots of thanks!!
However… my basic project is intended to be a Wiki, not other
different application with wiki stuff… Are you meaning SQLiki is not
appropiate for that?
