Projects / Wikidbase


Wikidbase is a powerful and highly flexible combination of two structural extremes of data management systems: a wiki and a database. As such, it has all of the flexibility of a wiki (e.g. any kind of unstructured data can be stored) and the structural data capabilities of a database (e.g. data may be modelled similarly to database fields, tables, and relations, such that structural reports can me made of that data). The functionality is combined in such a way that this general-purpose data management system may be shaped easily, without the need of a database expert, into a custom data management application such as a contact relation management (CRM) system, a knowledge base, a shared calendar system, a project management system, etc.

    Release Notes: The installation was updated to use virtualenv, so it is easier to install wikidbase alongside newer Django apps, since wikidbase requires Django versions earlier than 1.0.

          Release Notes: It is now possible to view wikidpages in a calendar. Though basic at the moment, the goal is to create Google Calendar-like functionality, allowing wikidbase to become a generic shared calendar system in addition to being a knowledge base and database.
