Wikka Wiki

WikkaWiki is a lightweight WikiEngine written in PHP, which uses MySQL to store pages. WikkaWiki is a fork of WakkaWiki, to which a number of new features have been added. It is designed for speed, extensibility, and security. Released under the GPL license.


In 2003, the development of WakkaWiki came abruptly to an end, although a large community of users and contributors was still actively posting bugfixes, extensions and new functionalities. First released in May 2004, WikkaWiki rapidly grew into a project aiming to remain faithful to Wakka's heritage of a lightweight engine with readable and accessible code. The latest version (1.3.1, http://docs.wikkawiki.org/WhatsNew) was released on 31 Mar 2011. This release includes some security patches, many bug fixes, and new functionality, including relaxed page-naming requirements (CamelCase no longer required!), a new RSS feed generator, several new actions, and theme improvements.

Wikka vision

WikkaWiki's flexibility and easy adaptability to the user's needs - including the nonprofessional developer's - are among the most prominent and appreciated features of this engine. Compared to heavier WikiEngines, which integrate several built-in functions, WikkaWiki's goal is to keep its core as small as possible while developing an architecture that supports easy extensibility through plugin modules.
