Foswiki is a flexible, powerful, and easy to use enterprise wiki and collaboration platform. The structured wiki is typically used to run a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, or any other groupware tool, on an intranet or on the internet. Web content can be created collaboratively by using just a browser. Users without programming skills can create wiki applications. Developers can extend the functionality of Foswiki with Plugins.
Administrators can tailor their Foswiki installation with over 400 extensions available at foswiki.org.
Foswiki is supported by a large vibrant community. It is surrounded by a rich eco-system of diverse commercial service providers covering hosting, individual customizations and training.
Foswiki is the open source successor of TWiki. It was created on 2008-10-27 by its core developers since a company called TWIKI.NET enforced their trademark on TWiki by locking out all former contributors.
Foswiki is backwards compatible to TWiki and continues 10 years of experience and tradition. It's latest release fixes over 400 individual bugs relative to the current TWiki release. Major TWiki customers are in progress to migrate away from TWiki, i.e. as development and fixes of key enterprise features are only available upstream for Foswiki.
