Olelo, or Git-Wiki, is a wiki that uses git to manage pages. Olelo is written in Ruby and uses the Catalyst MVC web framework.

Git-Wiki stores the pages in a git repository. Therefore you can use all the benefits of the revision control software (distributed content etc). Multiple markup languages are supported via plugins. The wiki has a very extensible architecture. Custom markup can be added via filters. Additional tags can be added (e.g. the math tag which is provided for LaTeX-rendering).

    • Support for images and attachments - You can add images to /img folder of your git repository. Subfolders are also supported. At least gif, png and jpg supported
    • Custom h1 header - If your wiki page contains a markdown h1 header, then this one is used on the page.
    • Sections - Content separated by headers like h1 is wrapped with divs, so you can style such blocks as you wish. Every header gets a unique id
    • Style - You can provide a custom stylesheet for your wiki or project in the project.css file.
    • Wiki in a subfolder - You can use git-wiki for documentation of your software project. Simply put all the content in markdown format into a subfolder, e.g. wiki and provide the folder name as optional parameter.
    • Upstream git repository
    • Integrated TODO list(s)
    • Inclusion - You can include tasks from other wiki pages.
    • No wiki words - For a hacker the wiki words is more a distraction than a help.
