This is a new wiki engine concept by WardCunningham and some others. The idea is posting your content to your local wiki, then federating out via various API's. In a sense, wikis become more like blogs in that each person has their own. But pages can migrate through the federation.

The WikiEngine is split between a back-end page storage and a lot of front-end rendering GUI.

The back-end is a standard with two current implementations : One in Wiki:RubyLanguage, using [Rack] and [Sinatra] which is the reference implementation. And a clone in CoffeeScript? running on NodeJs? which is more or less kept up-to-date with the reference.

The client code is all in CoffeeScript?.

The code can be found at https://github.com/WardCunningham/Smallest-Federated-Wiki
