Encycla isn't quite a wiki - instead, it's sort of a 'next generation' wiki. Unlike a traditional wiki where everyone edits a single page, on Encycla each user maintains their own personal copy of a page, and changes are suggested (pulled) between pages.

Encycla is built on the same Git technology used by software engineers, and each page in Encycla is a git repository containing markdown -- all of which can be edited independently of the Encycla website, pushed to other services (such as GitHub, GitLab), etc.

Encycla allows for easy import of Wikipedia articles to start writing about a topic.

Encycla was founded by LocalWiki/Davis Wiki co-founder Philip Neustrom and Chris Jerdonek.
