I installed PyWiki
on my laptop and I'm experimenting with using my Wiki as the ProgrammersNotebook
. You can link things together, search etc. One problem is that you cannot doodle, like in a real notebook. -- RichieBielak
You should be able to do this; make a real hyperlink to your favorite drawing tool, or to a file managed by that tool. Or find/write a Java drawing applet and incorporate that into your Wiki engine. Hmmm... sounds like an interesting concept for something to incorporate into WikiWikiWeb or JWiki (see JavaWikiByRichardKeene)... -- DanHankins
I've added it to my set of SelfUserStories? for JWiki. -- DanHankins
has a Java drawing applet plug-in available, based upon HotDraw
One big benefit of using a wiki as a notebook is that you can share it with others. It's nice when you jot down the description of some problem in the wiki, and a few minutes later someone says "Hey, I know how to fix that!" Or you can search other peoples' notes for similar issues. -- KrisJohnson
Another benefit of using a wiki as a programmer's notebook is InterWiki
. You can link up your personal notebook with the company-wide wiki, or with the WikiWikiWeb
I have used an installation of http://twiki.org
for this purpose. I use Visio and attach them "inline". It has a drawing plugin as well http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/TWikiDrawPlugin
runs an instance of SnipSnap
for a notebook, and I'm looking to integrate my notebook and personal blog. Someday, I hope to figure out how to effectively host a shared "snip space" for all our developers, but I haven't figured out how to encourage sharing of knowledge while respecting territory (a ProgrammersNotebook
is a very personal thing). -- HansGerwitz
We use pbwiki. We started with a LearnLog?
for each member of the team and ProjectLog?
for each project. It is still an experiment since the team is a set of interns. -- DoraiThodla
I use http://tiddlywiki.com
with Git for version control, so I can keep the wiki portable. -- DafyddCrosby?
