What is Ikiwiki?
Ikiwiki is a Wiki compiler that constructs static HTML pages for a wiki. It copies from the source in the Markdown language and writes it to the destination. Markdown is similar to plain text normally used in email messages and comes as a default in wiki. Ikiwiki is an open source wiki application licensed under the GNU 2 (general public license). The application was designed and created by Joey Hess in April 2006 and written in Perl language. But it allows external plugins to be written in any language.
Ikiwiki has a few blogging functionalities like comments and RSS feeds and comes with an option asking to set up a blog while installing. It can also run as an off-site website generator and function as a regular wiki with the web interface. Ikiwiki can also be used as a bug tracking system. Ikiwiki is widely included in various Linux distributions like Ubuntu and Debian.
