Description

Why another wiki editor ?

The past few years, I was looking for a fast simple Wiki Editor to store notes as fast as possible. I tried many applications on Windows, iPad, iPhone, …

  • EverNote is a great product but too complicated for my basic usage.
  • SimpleNote is really interesting but too simple.
  • I don’t want to store my files on an other cloud, why not using DropBox ?
  • I tried EmaWiki but there is no way to produce HTML files for public browsing.

So I decided to code "Yet another Wiki Editor for DropBox" :).

Manuals

  • Setup preferences right click on tray icon.
  • WikiDrop use an internal .html template . It can be override by a custom template folder under WikiDrop root or project folder.

The editor use the Markdown Syntax to render the HTML. There is also other settings:

  • [ ] and [x] will create checkbox. (use 4 spaces to create a sub list level)

  1. I build a new version 0.7 to choose the language in preferences. You must quit and restart the application after modification.

  2. Wow, thanks for the fast response! It still didn’t auto-detect properly, but I was able to switch languages after studying it a bit. Let me use it for a few weeks and I’ll give it a proper review.

    Thanks for sharing!
