## What sets Wikked apart

**Wikked** is a [wiki][] engine that stores its data in plain text files using
a common revision control system like [Mercurial][] or [Git][]. As such, it's:

- Easy to backup: just clone/push the repository somewhere else!
- Friendly to edit: use your favourite text editor, search-and-replace, etc.

## Online Sandbox

Want to try Wikked _now_? The official wiki is read-only, but you can play around on the [Wikked Sandbox Wiki][sandbox]!

## Quickstart

Get started in a whiff:

> pip install wikked
> wk init mywiki
> cd mywiki
> wk runserver
