Review: ScrewTurn Wiki

Background

About 2 months ago I was looking for a wiki platform for my day job (www.voler.com).  I was looking for an ASP.net based WIKI, but was open to other platforms...  Luckily I ran across ScrewTurn and was super impressed.  It seems to be a very well organized project utilizing the latest ASP.net platform features, plus it was very easy to get setup and customize.

Originally I wasn't sure what we would use a WIKI for, but I knew I needed some sort of intranet/document repository for the various departments at Voler.  It turns out the ScrewTurn is perfect as an Intranet platform.

Below are the top things that I like about ScrewTurn:

  • No DB required, it stores all articles (and previous version) as text files
  • Extensible modular platform, making it easy for others to build onto it
  • Support for single signon using Active Directory (someone is developing an extension for this)
  • Simple easy to understand framework (this means it's easy to customize)
