Web-based collaboration platform

TWiki is a web-based collaboration platform that lets you run a dynamic intranet site, a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, an issue tracking system and other groupware applications. TWiki looks and feels like a normal intranet or Web site. Users can change or create content from any Web browser without requiring special plugins. Features include automatic link generation, full text search, authorization based on groups, Web form handling, email notification of changes, file attachments to Web pages, revision control of pages and attachments, and more. The server-side TWiki Plugins API gives developers a simple way to build new groupware applications. Plugins and add-ons enhance the platform with action item tracking, charting charting, database access, two-way RSS news feeds, LDAP connectivity, spreadsheets, XSL transformations, XP tracking, HTML publishing, and more. More than sixty plugins are avaiable at
