Wiki Recommendations?


#1

Last time I did this dance, i2 was the all around best choice for a
Ruby wiki that was available.

Have things changed?

My priorities are in order:

  1. Must run on TextDrive. (Most options should fit this one, right?)
  2. Usability / Stability. Don’t want it to blow up
  3. Ease of install
  4. Ability to make it look pretty
  5. General l33tn355

This will be for the GoRuCo attendees wiki, incase anyone is wondering.


#2

From: “Gregory B.” removed_email_address@domain.invalid

  1. Ease of install
  2. Ability to make it look pretty
  3. General l33tn355

I haven’t tried many other ruby wikis, but I just installed
SOKS: http://rubyforge.org/projects/soks/

…and it seems to be a pretty nice one.

As for ease of install, it was very easy, with just one quirk:

In the start.rb file that it generated for me:

require ‘rubygems’
gem ‘Soks’, ‘~> 1.0.3’
$LOG.info ‘Loaded Soks from gem’
require ‘soks’ # <-- I had to add this line and I don’t know why

For some reason, just requiring the gem was not enough to
cause soks.rb to be loaded. I looked at the gemspec and it
appeared to specify the correct auto-require and lib dirs,
so I’m not sure why it didn’t work as expected.

But apart from having to add that explicit “require ‘soks’” line,
everything has gone smoothly so far.

Regards,

Bill

The ‘gem’ statement merely states what gems should be used. It does not
do any requiring, auto or not.
