wikifier is a file-based wiki engine written in Perl.

I created it as a basic markup-to-HTML translator, admiring the wiki markup concept but finding existing languages such as MediaWiki to be unappealing.

Over the years, wikifier evolved into a full-blown CMS backend that could be incorporated into any existing web environment. Although it's been superseded by quiki, I'm still really proud of the wikifier concept and code base.
