Kwiki-o-matic

Software of the week is Kwiki - a modular Perl-based wiki. Installing (as root) was as easy as CPAN can be, and installing further plugins is just as easy. Setting up a new (non-public, sorry) wiki site is just a case of doing (not as root) "wiki -new" in a directory within my (Apache) web root, and adding in the plugins I installed earlier is just "kwiki -add Kwiki::Plugin".

Following the theme docs, I also made my own little module to change the styling, in about half an hour. So now I can install/uninstall it as I wish.

On top of the Slackware packaging system running on the box, it's all been fantastically easy. Yes, some day, all software will be this way...
