TypeWiki software

PukiWiki is wiki software written in PHP, and is widely used by Japanese wikis.[2][3][4] It was forked from YukiWiki [ja], originally developed by Yuuki Hiroshi [ja]. Since version 1.4, PukiWiki Development Team became the developer of the software.


Originating from Japan, PuwiWiki offers better DBCS support than most wiki software. It also has a layout optimized for mobile use since many use their phones to browse wikis in Japan.[5]

PukiWiki can run on PHP 4, 5, 7 or 8. It supports interwiki links and extensions, similar to MediaWiki.[4][5]

PukiWiki is written such that it uses PHP with a series of text files, hence does not require a database to operate, and does not support databases natively. However, support could be added through extensions for MySQL, SQLite, Oracle Oci8 and PostgreSQL.
