Instiki is a wiki clone so pretty and easy to set up, you'll wonder if it’s really a wiki. Runs on Rails and focuses on portability and stability. Supports file uploads, PDF export, RSS, multiple users and password protection. Some use Instiki as a CMS (Content Management System) because of its ability to export static pages.
Instiki lowers the barriers of interest for when you might consider using a wiki. It's so simple to get running that you'll find yourself using it for anything -- taking notes, brainstorming, organizing a gathering.
Instiki only requires a working Ruby installation (it includes all other dependencies). Any OS that can run Ruby can run Instiki - that includes Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and most known Unix flavors.
Step 1. Get Instiki and run "ruby bundle install --path vendor/bundle" Step 2. Run "instiki" Step 3. Chuckle... "There's no step three!" (TM)
You need at least Ruby Version 2.0 installed on your System. Instiki is known to work well with Ruby 2.0-2.6. The second dependency is a Database System, but don't worry, the default sqlite3 will be installed for you, if it's not already installed. You can also use any other database system (MySQL, PostgreSQL, ...) supported by Rails.
On Snow Leopard (10.6) or later, you are all set.
Depending on the version of Rubygems that came with your Ruby, you may need to
sudo gem update --system
get SQLite or compile from http://sqlite.org (you can also use mysql or any other supported database system if you want)
run "ruby bundle install --path vendor/bundle"
You're now running a perfectly suitable wiki on port 2500 that'll present you with one-step setup, followed by a textarea for the home page on http://localhost:2500
ruby bundle install --path vendor/bundle ruby bundle exec rake upgrade_instiki
