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. It is suitable for small websites, personal notebooks or journals.

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) etc.

You can try all the features of LionWiki right on this website, preferably on Sandbox.


Current version of LionWiki is 2.3.1. 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.
