What is it?Sqwee is a simple, single-user, wiki-like web "engine" for quickly creating and editing personal webpages.
You can use it for taking notes, organizing your thoughts, keeping track of your life, or anything else you can think of.
If that isn't very clear (I don't think it is), check out the Sqwee demo site.
Sqwee aims to be as lightweight and simple as possible. As such, we have packages which include the Lighttpd server, so you don't need to set up your own web server. Pages are edited using Textile or HTML, but are stored as HTML so they do not have to be dynamically rendered. Backups are as simple as copying the storage directory.
You can download Sqwee from Rubyforge.
What can I do?
- You can create, edit, and delete pages in your Sqwee site without opening a text editor.
- You can use Textile or HTML to mark up your pages.
- You can create links between pages and arrange pages into a hierarchical structure.
- You can change the look of your Sqwee site with CSS and switch between themes fairly easily.
- You can run all this from a single directory, perhaps within your own home directory.
- You can probably use Sqwee on your shared-hosting provider.
- You can search all your Sqwee pages.
What can I not do?
- You can't see what internal pages need to be created (the way, for example, Wikipedia marks them.)
- You can't safely have multiple people editing pages (no locking.)
- You can't track multiple revisions of a page (just one.)
- You can't have different CSS stylesheets for different pages.
What can I not do yet?
- You can't change the theme without editing a file yet.
- You can't see timestamps on your pages yet.
- You can't easily change your markup language yet.
- You can't export your pages to static HTML yet.
- You can't run Sqwee on Windows or OS X yet (that I know of.)
- You can't upload items directly yet.
