(Not many so far, but real questions.)
What is AntiWiki for?
AntiWiki is good if you want to take notes and put them online, or make a mostly-handcrafted website. If you're not into that, it's probably not for you. There are better note-taking apps.
Why the name AntiWiki?
Because AntiWiki differs from other wikis in key ways:
- You edit in the app, and see the results in a browser, instead of having a single interface.
- You can't follow links in the app, or create pages while browsing.
That said it's not such a great name. Suggestions are welcome.
Why not simply use Markdown?
Lots of reasons:
- Markdown is an extra dependency.
- It's noticeably slow to parse and render.
- It's overhyped and overused. People are fed up.
- There must be better ways to do lightweight markup.
- Only nerds ever liked Markdown to be honest.
Besides, turns out my new markup language is really nice to use. Might as well.
