TWiki is a cgi-bin script written in Perl. It reads a text file, hyperlinks it and converts it to HTML on the fly. The point is to:
  • make the text editing process very simple ( click on the Edit link at the bottom of the page )
  • and to find information fast ( WebSearch ).

  • A TWiki site is an easy-to-use, satisfying open communication environment where...
    • people anywhere on the Internet can meet,
    • share rich Web text, images, online multimedia,
    • do it all through a regular Web browser.

In addition to being quick, TWiki also aspires to Zen ideals generally labeled WabiSabi. Zen finds beauty in the imperfect and ephemeral. When it comes down to it, that's all you need.

TWiki's parsing engine reads a text file, hyperlinks it, and converts it to standard HTML, on the fly. The point is to:
  • make editing text extremely simple (to see how simple, click on Edit link at the bottom of the page)
  • and to let you find information fast (WebSearch).
