Wixer is a wiki compiler based on Adam Megacz's WiX. The project has a fully specified formal grammar, pre-compiles web pages, and an AJAX web interface.
Here are some key features of "Wixer":
· Pages are compiled to .html files the moment they are changed. This means that no dynamic server is needed to keep your web site online. The recommended deployment strategy involves a vanilla httpd like Apache serving out the html, and proxying the edit requests to a behind-the-scenes Java Servlet.
· Revision history is stored in a git repository.
· It is pretty, both the markup language itself and the resulting html.
· Wixer, thanks to Adam Megacz's WiX, has a formal grammar, meaning that its behaviour is fully specified and it is easy to extend.
· The grammar is presentation neutral, meaning it is easy to write renderers for all sorts of crazy formats. Expect a PDF renderer soon.
· The web interface uses an AJAX-based XML-RPC client to communicate with the server. This means the server is simple, with a well defined interface that minimises bugs.
· Java SE Development Kit
