referring to a site which seems
not to be, or include, a wiki.
Wikimedia Toolforge is not a wiki, although the layout of some of its pages may appear to mimic the style of other wikis. Toolforge, as it is more commonly known, is a hosting environment for MediaWiki developers working on services that provide value to the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) movement. These services allow software developers to easily perform ad hoc analytics, administer bots, run webservices, and generally create tools, to help editors and other volunteers in their work. The environment also includes access to a variety of data services and statistics. The Toolforge infrastructure is supported by a dedicated group of Wikimedia Foundation staff and volunteers.

Its primary URL is https://Tools.WMFLabs.org. The Toolforge code is released under the GNU General Public License, version 3 (GPLv3+), whereas its textual documentation is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license (CC-BY-SA 3.0).

The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' major wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being rolled out. Its most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
