MathsWiki is a wiki for maths and mathematicians. Very very young and very very empty. Not up at all hours.
*Note: this page, and the wiki it is on, are not MathsWiki! Rather, MathsWiki is at the other end of the following link.*
- http://129.67.38.110:8001/view.jhtml?page=FrontPage
- http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?MathWiki is mostly or completely about other mathematical wikis
It was built by ARC, but he decided that it was not in the WikiNature to call it ChickiWiki _(shame!)_.
Cunningly, the MathsWiki engine exploits Te__X for its markup language. Te__X is already well-established, has well-developed facilities for expressing mathematical formulae, and is supported by a variety of free software. It is, however, rather less user-friendly than TwicI's WikiText, at least for non-mathmo values of 'user'.
_Exactly how does MathsWiki's markup relate to Te__X? What is added? Is the Te__X bit inside any kind of 'box', ie do you have to inscribe some incantation to get into Te__X mode, or is it just Te__X from the word go? The flow chart looks like this: Source -> WikiName__s changed to Te__X-escaped links -> Result fed through Tt__H to get a chunk of HTML -> Title and footer added -> Output. So the answer is you can use Te__X anywhere you like. _This is probably a very good fit to the needs of mathematicians._
Suggested alternatives to ARC's own software are TWiki (which runs under ApacheHTTPD) and ZWiki (which runs on top of the ZObjectPublishingEnvironment).
