Main Features of TWiki

  • Any web browser: Edit existing pages or create new pages by using any web browser. There is no need to upload pages.
  • Edit link: To edit a page, simply click on the Edit link at the top or bottom of the page.
  • Auto links: Web pages are linked automatically. You do not need to learn HTML commands to link pages.
  • Text formatting: Simple, powerful and easy-to-learn text formatting rules. Basically you write text like you would write an e-mail.
  • Webs: Pages are grouped into TWiki webs (or collections). This allows you to set up separate collaboration groups.
  • Search: Full text search with/without regular expressions. See a sample search result.
  • E-mail notification: Get automatically notified when something has changed in a TWiki web.
  • Structured content: Use TWiki Forms to classify and categorize unstructured web pages and to create simple workflow systems.
  • File attachments: Upload and download any file as an attachment to a page by using your browser. This is similar to file attachments in an e-mail, but it happens on web pages.
  • Revision control: All changes to pages and attachments are tracked. Retrieve previous page revisions; compare differences; find out who changed what and when.
  • Access control: Define groups and impose fine-grained read and write access restrictions based on groups and users.
  • Variables: Use variables to dynamically compose your pages. This allows you for example to dynamically build a table of contents, include other pages, or show a search result embedded in a page.
  • TWiki plugins: Easily install program enhancements using external plug-in modules. Developers can create plug-ins in Perl using the TWiki Plugin API.
  • Templates and skins: A flexible templating system separates program logic and presentation. Skins overwrite template headers and footers; page content is unaffected.
  • Managing pages: Individual pages can be renamed, moved and deleted through the browser.
  • Managing users: Web-based user registration and change of password.
  • Statistics: Create statistics of TWiki webs. Find out most popular pages and top contributors.
  • Preferences: Three levels of preferences: TWiki Preferences for site-level, Web Preferences for each web, and user level preferences.
  • simultaneous page editing:
  • Referred-By: Find the pages that contain links to a topic.
