Reddit: What software does the arch wiki run off of?

Thursday 17th of September 2015 12:17:22 AM

My university club is looking for a way to type up their documentation, and a wiki seems like a very good option. I know mediawiki is an option, but I was curious if the arch wiki ran off something different.
