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.


The support for DBCS of PukiWiki is wider than most wiki software, due to its origination in Japan. Due to the heavy use of mobile phones for browsing the web in Japan, PukiWiki also have a layout optimized for mobile use.[5]

PukiWiki can run on PHP 4, 5 or 7. 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.
