A note on recreation[edit]

This article was previously deleted. I have restored and expanded it. Had I seen the original deletion debate, I would have commented there that if the Association for Computing Machinery, the world's most distinguished scientific and educational computing society, has seen fit to publish a paper by the authors of the Creole standard, then it is hardly our place to decree that it is not, in fact, notable. — Hex (❝?!❞) 12:39, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

There is something called Wikipedia:Deletion review, though. I am not entirely convinced that Creole is notable as in encyclopedic-notable, although it is surely ACM-notable and wiki-developer-notable. I am considering to drag it to afd again (note; not WP:CSD#G4 - recreation of deleted material) as there seems to be material from only ACM and themselves in the article, but I will look into it more closely before that.

I see what you mean, but it was raised there before once, and someone commented that DRV "is not, for the most part, a venue to advance new arguments (or re-advance old ones) which should properly have been made at the AFD discussion". If it goes to AfD again, I will say there what I said above. Thanks for your concern. — Hex (❝?!❞) 01:52, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

xpage wiki[edit]

Now it supports also creole!OpenDocument —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:14, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Who uses it?[edit]

When I read this, I wonder what it's claiming:

As of late 2008, wiki engines that have implemented full or partial support for Creole include Oddmuse, MoinMoin, DokuWiki, TiddlyWiki, JSPWiki, PmWiki, PodWiki, XWiki.[5], EuWiki, Ikiwiki, and Hatta.

Does that mean they have Creole as an option, or that it's the default markup?

The sentence would be technically true in either case, but misleading if it's not the default markup in all those wikis. Gronky (talk) 22:02, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

It's not the default markup for most of them. It is an option for Oddmuse, MoinMoin, DocuWiki, TiddlyWiki, PmWiki, PodWiki, IkiWiki. It is (mostly, with some variation) the default for Hatta. The others I am not sure about. There are actually not many wikis yet that have creole as the default - certanly not most of the "popular" wikis such as Wikipedia. But it is new ...

Creole is the only, thus the default, markup for EuWiki. It uses a superset of the v1.0 edition of creole. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Derek Parnell (talkcontribs) 02:45, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
A variation of Creole is also used in the Zim Desktop Wiki. It is based more on docuwiki markup but does have many similarities to Creole. NevarMaor (talk) 05:08, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
