Welcome to Wiki on a Stick!

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 of pages.

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.
