2021-04-04 Simplest Local Wiki

Today we explored running federated wiki locally.

# simpler commandline if you create config below wiki

# run wiki without writing the config files wiki --farm --security_legacy --port=3000

# choose an alternate data directory wiki --farm --security_legacy --data=./data


Create a local directory to store wiki configuration and data.

mkdir $HOME/.wiki

Create a file named $HOME/.wiki/config.json

{ "security_legacy": true, "farm": true, "port": 3000 }


If you have not previously installed node and wiki...

# for mac using homebrew brew install node brew install npm

... or use download to install node if you prefer

Once node is installed

npm install -g wiki
