Lightweight Wiki Recommendations Python based for LAN


100% Tier-1 Gogent
Anyone around here a fan of Wiki software?

Looking for something lightweight, easily portable and probably Python based.

Anyone using such a tool currently that that can share the name of?

Looking to get my Tomboy notes off the PC and up to LAN.  So ideally Python app with web based interface

Portability and lightweight mainly.

Running stuff on lowly ARM devices with limited RAM.   So PHP is one more thing eating away at small pile of RAM + additional hardening stuff for such.


Slow but sure
how about give try. (no python, no other script) just markdown plus web server.

At office we use gitbook as knowledge base for our dev team.

MoinMoin isn't very fancy but it's in Python and very easy to set up.  Uses plain files instead of a database etc.  I ran an instance for something I was doing at work a while back, which had a dozen or so pages.  It was fine for that.  But if it were for something longer lasting and serious I'd probably bite the bullet and install mediawiki.

If you want extreme lightweight, put Tiddlywiki on a server.  Single page of HTML and the wiki is done 100% in Javascript.

Of course, it doesn't have to be on a server - you can carry it on a USB, Dropbox, etc.  But it works on a server as well.
