Wiki on a Stick (in short WoaS
) is a wiki
that lives in one self-modifying XHTML file
. It's perfect to be used at home or at office, on your laptop or USB pen drive. It can be used as a personal notepad, calendar, repository for software documentation and for many other purposes; it allows full customization and extension by your own scripts and plugins. It also offers AES encryption
Wiki on a Stick can always be downloaded through the official SF.net WoaS project file download service:Download Wiki on a Stick

Client and server interaction
WoaS is a client-side application, you cannot use it on a remote server; your changes will be permanent only if the file you're editing is on your own disk. The first time you run, the browser will ask for permission to save data on disk - you should grant that permission, so that the file can modify itself on your disk.
WoaS contains embedded documentation avaiable by clicking the help icon or by browsing WoaS::Help::Index
. You should really read it because WoaS has a lot of features which might ease your work.
