User Reviews

  • provides far better tools for creating structured data and applications then other wikis.

  • With unparalleled flexibility and power, the truly industrial-strength wiki! Foswiki doesn't have a rigid pre-defined structure like many CMS's but provides far better tools for creating structured data and applications then other wikis. Makes it relatively easy to build all kinds of applications far quicker than other frameworks. Also provides lots of ways to integrate external data from legacy applications.
