LionWiki is a minimalist Wiki engine. It is extensible, templatable, file based (it doesn't need database like MySQL) and requires just one file to function properly. It is suitable for small sites, personal notebooks or journals. LionWiki is a fork of WiKiss.


  • 11. 3. 2009 - LionWiki 2.2.3 released. This release contains new Dutch translation (thanks to Jeroen Lassche - Sjoer) and fixes few bugs. See ChangeLog for details.
  • 9. 3. 2009 - Thanks to Giacomo Margarito, we have Italian translation of Syntax reference page. Right now, I'm quite busy so work on LionWiki 2.3 is a little bit slow but is definitely advancing. Stay tuned!
  • 14. 2. 2009 - Brand new LionWiki UserGuide was released. As always, it's work in progress :) At the same time, I've received French translation of Syntax reference. Big thanks to Jeff Fortin!

Feature set is purposely limited to maintain the biggest advantages over other Wiki engines - small size and simplicity to install and use.

LionWiki provides essential Wiki functionality like Wiki syntax, page history, last changes, renaming pages, password protection (both read and write) and other functions.


Current version of LionWiki is 2.2.3. You can choose from two downloads:

  • Full featured LionWiki consisting of core file, templates, configuration file, language files, plugins and help.
  • Core LionWiki consisting of just one file which contains everything needed for basic functions. It is exactly the same as index.php from full featured LionWiki.

The only software requirement is PHP installation with version greater or equal to 4.3.

Older versions can be found here.
