Ruby on Rails
Instiki picks up and moves out
by David Heinemeier Hansson
April 21, 2004
Instiki is a instant-on wiki based on Ruby, Madeleine (Prevayler for Ruby), WEBrick, and rendering by Textile, Markdown, and RDoc. Yearh, I'm pimping it alright.


Instiki is now in it's 0.7th release and already my default pick for any new content-oriented venture. It's used heavily in the study group to keep notes for our law class and write our bachelor's project (plans for a LaTeX-exporter is in the works). We've also installed it in Socialistisk Folkeparti for the internal side of our Social Software study (the external part is a weblog for member of parlement Margrete Auken).

On top of that, I'm running a wiki to collect knowledge on my new 3G phone from Motorola. A new commercial project I just started on uses it for requirements specifications. A friend of mine developing Mac shareware uses it to coordinate the development of their two projects. And of course Instiki itself is hosted on Instiki.

And it's apparently not just a mother's love, either. Russell wrote about wikis for intranet use yesterday and two different people immediatly jumped in to promote Instiki. Awesome!

So I thought it was about time for it to move out and onto its own domain:
