WikiMatrix allows you to compare the features of many, many different wiki
engines. But a wiki is more than it's list of features. This documentation wiki is the right
place to document the engines in a more detailed way.
Feel free to improve the documentation by filling in missing data.
WikiMatrix provides access to the Wiki infos through a simple XML API. This allows you to pull interesting data from the Matrix system to create your own customized analysis (eg. “Which are the most popular programming languages for Wikis” or “What is the most used syntax for bold”).
The API is accessed through simple HTTP requests on http://www.wikimatrix.org/api/*. Data is returned as XML.
The API calls can be restricted to certain features items or products. Those can be specified either with their internal IDs as returned in the API calls or by their real names. Multiple items or products can be given separated by plus chars. Whitespaces need to be replaced by underscores. When specifying feature items by name you need to give the item group name and the item name separated by a colon.
