The WikicWeb is a CeeLanguage version of WikiWikiWeb. I recoded the entire program in C because that is the language I am most familiar with. The WikicWeb was designed for the Patterns Home Page at http://st-www.cs.uiuc.edu/users/patterns/ (BrokenLink 20070524) to create a place where people can tell stories about patterns (The official name is currently the Pattern Stories Web).
I love the idea of having a public Web site where everyone can get involved in editing. However, the first time I was introduced to the WikiWikiWeb here, there were a few features that seemed confusing or restricting. It was my goal to eliminate as many restrictions as possible. This may create a problem since some people will want to be a little too creative and make their pages look a lot different from a normal page. I assume people can exercise self control in this regard.
Some of the key differences are:
HTML tags may appear anywhere ;)
Line wrapping never hurts, such as in lists and tags
New link tag so you can have complete freedom in the name of the page. No more HardToReadThis? stuff.
Lists are intelligent....
External links are encapsulated around a name
Tabs are automatically converted to 5 spaces. No longer have to explain what "ConvertSpacesToTabs" means, which may be confusing to newcomers.
The backup file will contain an infinite number of backups.
