Systems made for content management. Items on this page may intersect with the frameworks page if necessary. Mostly things like wikis, blogs, etc.

As of early 2015, many of the below are defunct or just really old. The more recent, working libraries are therefore at the top.

Aims and Goals

  • Not a general purpose wiki, but a collaboration tool to create LaTeX documents
  • Focus on LaTeX document creation, the "regular" wiki pages are just supporting this
  • Subversion access for advanced users
  • Editing via CGI should be safe (e.g. conflicts are either solved by subversion or displayed to the user)
  • Should replace the old software http://lkwiki.nomeata.de/ fully
