 +==== Why DokuWiki? ====
 +But first what is Dokuwiki? It is easy to guess from the name: it is [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​wiki|wiki]] software. There are few dozens of wiki software available. Some of them are well known - [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​MediaWiki|MediaWiki]],​ some of them less known. The Wikipedia has a nice [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Comparison_of_wiki_software|comparison of wiki software]].
 +The [[http://​www.wikimatrix.org/​|Wikimatrix]] has even more complete list. And moreover you can use "​Choice Wizard"​ to simplify your choice. Side by side compare is also very useful. ​  
 +When we start look for the software to manage our //Mass Spectrometry Data Center// website the wiki engine come to our minds: a) collaboration;​ b) simplified markup language; c) fluent structural modification "on the go".
 +But we do not need "heavy tools" for our quite small needs. ​
 +And [[https://​www.dokuwiki.org/​dokuwiki|DokuWiki]] is very fit to our needs:
