Rails wiki resurrected with i2

Posted by admin

The Rails wiki is back running on a brand-new engine called i2. It’s a fresh rewrite of Instiki with all the cruft cut out, most of the features, and of course Madeleine. It’s not currently suitable as an alternative for the personal wiki sphere. The real Instiki still reigns supreme for ease-of-use. But it’s a way to get an Instiki-like wiki that’s prepared for a wiki the size of the Rails one.

The import from Instiki didn’t go entirely smooth, so we’ll need some help cleaning up any deficiencies. Please do give a hand.

Trivia: i2 was written from scratch in about 6 hours by yours truly and consists of 214 lines of code (and 120 lines of testing code).
