TWiki is software for running a wiki. It uses text files for storage, rather than a database.


TWiki does have some advantages over the main competition:

  • "webs", which are like sub-wikis within the wiki. They're a little like MediaWiki namespaces, but each one can be searched separately (as well as being searchable as part of the whole wiki) and, unlike MW namespaces, are managed through a web interface
  • TWikiForms which can be used to manage database-stored data or add new pages based on user input plugged into a template
