Platypus Wiki provides a semantic Wiki Wiki Web.
Platypus Wiki provides a semantic Wiki Wiki Web.

Platypus Wiki is an enhanced Wiki Wiki Web with ideas taken from Semantic Web. It offers a simple user interface for creating Wiki page plus metadata according to W3C standards.

We've chosen HTMLarea v3.0rc1 as a WYSIWYG editor for creating content in (X)HTML. We are using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for presentation, and our intention is to be fully compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines v1.0 with Level AAA. Platypus Wiki lets you set "global" and "local" links. A global link is generated on every page: you just have to specify a word or phrase and the corresponding URL. A local link is similar, but only appears on a specified page.

Another difference from the classical Wiki is the way links are specified in a page: instead of CamelWords, square brackets, etc., we use the convention namespace:pagename; this lets the user write content without worrying about namespace collisions. We also use RDF to represent the page space as a directed labeled graph.

Each node in Platypus Wiki is both a Wiki page and an RDF resource. We are designing a navigation interface to simplify the interaction of users with the system and RDF metadata editing.
