WikiEngineTree — this tree shows roughly how various wiki engine developments are (or were) interrelated. For a full list of wiki engines we have indexed here on WikiIndex, see Category:Wiki Engine.

The tree is a subjective approach to a classification of wiki engines according to their origins (where the original programmer of the wiki engine got the idea of deriving a new wiki engine).

In other words: this is supposed to be a tree of the evolution of wiki engines (not wiki forums, but wiki engines). It is supposed to show where a wiki engine was derived from. Of course, this can be very subjective.

[edit] Page format

Please try to list information in the following order:

wiki engine; year the development of the wiki engine started; name of first programmer; original programming language of the wiki engine; its relation to any existing wiki engines; project or community the engine was originally made for [if any]; basic features that are new,

by using (the leading hash # generates the auto-numbering):

#[[:Category:Engine Name|Engine Name]] — year; author; prog lang; relation; other comment
