CLiki is an open source wiki application written in Common Lisp, that was under development from 2002 to 2005.

CLiki was first presented at the International Lisp Conference 2002.[2][3] CLiki was the first wiki variant to introduce so called "free links", using the _(free link format) as an alternative to the much-criticized CamelCase.[citation needed]

The CLiki program is free software licensed under the MIT license. It runs under SBCL and uses the Araneida Common Lisp web server.

CLiki also operates a homepage using the software that is dedicated to the subject of Common Lisp.


Since 2011, a new version of Cliki (named Cliki2) was developed by Vladimir Sedach and Andrey Moskvitin,[4] with major features around spam prevention. Other major features are:

  • Araneida was replaced with Hunchentoot
  • Real article deletion and undeletion
  • Code coloring using cl-colorize
  • Working list of uncategorized/orphan articles
  • Pages that work well in text browsers (and hopefully screen readers)
