==Some history==
WakkaWiki is a legendary [[WikiEngine | wiki engine]], written in PHP with a MySQL backend. Developed by Carlos Zottman and [[ | Hendrik Mans]], it rapidly grew into one of the most popular CMS for small intranets and collaborative projects, thanks to its [[LightweightInfo | lightweightness]] and its easily hackable code.

==Death and rebirth of a wiki engine==
In 2003, the development of Wakka Wiki came abruptly to an end, although a large community of contributors was still actively posting bugfixes, extensions and new functionalities. Lacking further maintainance, Wakka ceased being attractive to new users and saw most of its contributors migrate to one of its many forks. Today, WakkaWiki survives in a number of forks, sharing the same ancestry but pursuing their own visions. It is for this reason that WakkaWiki was nominated as one of the best [[WikiEngine | wiki engines]] ever (see the [[ | WikiEngineHallOfFame]]).
As of September 2004 the original WakkaWiki domain appears to be defunct. The original WakkaWiki site (whose [[ | latest version]] is still archived on the [[*/ | WayBack Machine]]).

== Introducing ""WikkaWiki"" ==
First released in May 2004, WikkaWiki has grown into a mature project aiming to remain faithful to Wakka's heritage of a [[LightweightInfo | lightweight]] engine with readable and accessible code. Easy [[ExtensibleInfo | extensibility]]/hackability (without sacrificing [[SpeedInfo | performance]]) are among Wikka's most prominent and appreciated features.
