Contributors list


Git-wiki is a modular and full featured wiki powered by Git, GitHub/Gitlab Pages and pull requests!

The git-wiki project is composed by 3 different repository:

  • git-wiki-theme: This is the repository of the theme that implements the wiki functionalities. You would have not fork it unless you need to send a Pull Request or create your wiki project from scratch.

  • git-wiki-skeleton: This is the repo that you should fork or use as a template. It uses the jekyll remote theme functionality that allows you to create your own wiki based on git-wiki-theme. By using the remote functionality you can automatically keep your wiki always updated with latest features from the git-wiki-theme, but you can also fully customize it.

  • git-wiki: This is the documentation repository and website of the git-wiki-theme project. You would have not fork it unless you want to contribute to the git-wiki project documentation.

Getting started

The easier and faster way to use git-wiki is the "skeleton" method.

You don't need to install anything locally!

  1. Simply fork/clone skeleton repo or click on the "Use this template" button to create your copy of the skeleton project.

  2. Edit _config.yml and other pages as you need and then deploy it on GitHub/Gitlab Pages.

Done! Now wait that your page will be published and you're ready to wiki!
