Django-wiki, an alternative for MindTouch enterprise wiki?

The MindTouch open-source enterprise wiki has been abandoned for a while. Instead of continuing develop the open-source version, they changed their model into cloud based hosting. This disappoints us because the product is so great lately. Now, our organization have to stay with the soon-to-be obsoleted system. Fortunately, I found a project that looks promising: django-wiki


So, let's start trying it.

0. Prepare the environment and directory:

$ virtualenv ~/.venv/wiki
$ source ~/.venv/wiki/bin/activate

1. Clone the repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/benjaoming/django-wiki.git

2. Install requirements:

(wiki)$ cd django-wiki
(wiki)$ pip install -r requirements.txt

3. Run the test project:

(wiki)$ cd testproject
(wiki)$ python manage.py runserver
