MindTouch Deki, a Programmable Wiki

The Bungee LineOverview
MindTouch’s Steve Bjorg joins us to tell us all about their wiki platform called “Deki.” MindTouch is rapidly growing Deki’s install base, largely on its slick user interface. But there’s something hidden under the all the UI slickness: under the hood, Deki supports a comprehensive web API. In fact, the PHP user interface fully delegates all operations over web-service calls to the API. In other words, web-dev geeks like us can safely customize or extend the UI without risk of interfering with Deki’s business logic, such as page permissions or revisions. Coooool! Oh, and did we mention that it’s Free Software?
