Proposed new main page


Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages.

Semantic MediaWiki is also a full-fledged framework, in conjunction with many spinoff extensions, that can turn a wiki into a powerful and flexible “collaborative database”. All data created within SMW can easily be published via the Semantic Web, allowing other systems to use this data seamlessly.

Wiki of the Month – November 2010

The AIFB Web Portal of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology uses SMW to turn a wiki into a powerful content management system. A carefully crafted look, bilingual content management, and the artful use of forms and queries all combine into an inspiring demonstration of how semantic wikis can go beyond traditional applications, making it a worthy choice as our first Wiki of the Month.
