🍄Mycorrhiza Wiki

Mycorrhiza Wiki is an open-source wiki engine developed by Bouncepaw, who is assisted by other open-source contributors.

This website is an instance of the engine which runs one of the latest versions.

Here are some features of the engine:

  • No database required, everything is stored as simple files. It simplifies installation and makes it easy to modify the content using other means such as direct file editing.

  • Everything is hyphae. A hypha is a unit of content such as a picture, video or a text article. Hyphae can transclude and link each other resulting in a tight network of hypertext pages.

  • Nesting of hyphae is supported. A tree of related hyphae is shown on every page.

  • History of changes for text parts of hyphae. Every change is safely stored in Git. Web feeds for recent changes included!

  • Keyboard-driven navigation. Press ? to see the list of shortcuts.

  • Mycomarkup, a custom-made markup language.

  • Optional authorization.

  • Opengraph support.

Quick start


mycorrhiza path/to/wiki

It will:

  1. Initialize a Git repository and set useful defaults

  2. Prepopulate the config file

  3. Run a server on :1737

Simple as that. Want more? Learn more in the deployment guide. By the way, this wiki runs Mycorrhiza, too.

Community and development

You can follow the development on GitHub. There is a mirror on sourcehut.

There is an IRC channel #mycorrhiza on irc.libera.chat and a group in Telegram @mycorrhizadev where most of the stuff is discussed. Consider supporting the development on Boosty.
