So I have been looking around for some options for our project wiki. My needs are simple enough:

  1. User login, user groups, ability to allow some pages only to be edited by certain users/groups
  2. Editing API to allow bots to write / update pages etc (or RPC)
  3. Syntax highlighting
  4. Ease of use, for non-tech types
  5. Good looking

I really like the look of wikijs but unfortunately it has no API / RPC support.

On the other end of the spectrum I tried out dokuwiki which has tons of features but looks like crap and fails on point 4 & 5 above.

Now there is star7th/showdoc: ShowDoc is a tool greatly applicable for an IT team to share documents online which provides a nice interface and API.


In the end I went with xwiki which has the best tradeoff between the essential features I need (RPC) and looks.
