    It's a while since the last time this was asked:

    Is there any wiki written in Ruby which is alive and is backed by more
    than just one developer?

    I'm looking for a replacement for MediaWiki, the markup there is getting
    increasingly annoying. No need for fancy features, I'm only using 5% of
    what MediaWiki could do.

    There's very little. I did a survey not long ago, and Instiki's still
    the best, most reliable. I've used it in several settings for several
    years. It's fine. I don't know why there isn't more. I guess most folks
    who want wikis don't care what language it's in.

    Hey,

    thought I would mention Git-Wiki

    > git-wiki is a wiki that relies on git to keep pages’ history and Sinatra to serve them.

    -- git-wiki page

    you can read more at http://atonie.org/2008/02/git-wiki or at github

    In that case, take a look at Nanoki, a simple, elegant wiki engine
    implemented in Lua.

    http://alt.textdrive.com/nanoki/

    Online demo:

    Could you please explain what's annoying in MediaWiki's syntax? Or give
    an example? What's "increasing" about its syntax? MediaWiki's syntax
    isn't changing, thanks to its templating abilities.

    Sorry if this is an extremely naive question, but do (shared) hosts
    readily support Lua now? I'm just starting to dip my toe into Lua, so
    I'm wondering.

    Cheers,
    Mohit.

    Not sure, but try the Lua mailing list where someone might know more
    about this:
