    DokuWiki is a standards compliant, simple to use Wiki, mainly aimed at creating documentation of any kind. It is targeted at developer teams, workgroups and small companies. It has a simple but powerful syntax which makes sure the datafiles remain readable outside the Wiki and eases the creation of structured texts. All data is stored in plain text files – no database is required.

I started using this program for a personal wiki and a separate installation for my PhD research/thesis. It has been great. Combined with jsMath, it can do everything I need from a wiki. And, because there is no database and the files are stored as text, I know that it can stand the test of time. Also, because everything it needs is self-contained, I can move it from one server to another with no issues.

It packs some great features and is quite powerful. I am always finding little things that I did not know. For example, I discovered the bulk upload feature the other day. Before that, I found that it automatically formats for printing when you go to print it.

This has truly been a pleasure to use. I look forward to many more years of good use out of the program.

I would like to see some plug ins incorporated into the main install. For example, a WYSIWYG option would be great by default. Also, while there are themes optimized for mobile browsing, I would like to see some way to auto-detect and change for the different browsers. These may exist as plug ins (I am not sure) but would be great on a default install. Especially as a lot moves to the mobile platform
