GetWiki, stylized as [GetWiki], as well as, uses W3 recommended XHTML / CSS standards.[1][2] [GetWiki] is a PHP[3] application using a MySQL[4] database, and more information and resources are available on GetMeta, a wiki for the discussion of philosophy, science and technology, and support of [GetWiki].

The engine, founded early 2004, to "get wiki" content from one wiki site to another, is a fork development of the now ubiquitous MediaWiki engine. The main purpose of the [GetWiki] engine actually was to originally power,[5] a website which forks the whole English Wikipedia!, (Wikinfo formerly used MediaWiki)!

The engine has some special features aimed specifically at forking wikipedia.

Instead of red links, [GetWiki] uses green links to point to articles which do not exist locally. When the user follows such a link, [GetWiki] tries to dynamically fetch the requested content from the wiki designated as an external source (in Wikinfo's case, the English Wikipedia), renders and displays the article text. A local copy is created only if the page is edited. Effectively, Wikinfo therefore provides a transparent 'wrapper' around Wikipedia pages which have not yet been copied. See Wikipedia's page about Wikinfo.
