ComSwiki is shorthand for Comanche-based Swiki.

This Swiki you're reading right now is based on ComSwiki. (Actually, most Swikis these days are based on Comanche, so it's somewhat redundant to say ComSwiki... you could probably just use the term "Swiki" instead.)

To find out more about Swiki (ComSwiki), visit the Swiki Swiki homepage.

There you will find the description (platform - independent download) how to set up your own local wiki.

There is also a ready made setup using a Squeak image version 3.7. That is still a good version to run a stable wiki e.g. in an intranet for years.

Below are the installation instructions copied from that platform independent package
