Overview of AcroWiki
AcroWiki is a hypertext browsing and authoring system for Palm OS. Instead of organizing your notes in plain text memos you can now use AcroWiki to create hypertext notes with links, fonts, styles. But do not be afraid of complexities of HTML syntax — the Wiki syntax is created for humans.
AcroWiki is simple!
It is so simple, that you can learn it in 20 minutes. It is so transparent, that you can read memos written in Wiki syntax even without the AcroWiki browser, by simply using your memo pad! Yes, AcroWiki uses the standard Palm Memo application databases to store it's documents: you can view and edit them both in the AcroWiki browser and in the MemoPad application. Plus, you can synchronize them with your PC and even publish them on the web, using web-based Wiki systems like Twiki.
What is "Wiki"?
AcroWiki derives its name from the Hawaiian word "Wikiwiki" which means «fast, speedy, to hurry, hasten, quick, swift». The online hypertext collaboration system with same name was invented around 1995 by Ward Cunningham. The simplicity and the power of the system made it popular and it is currently used by many organizations like SAP, Disney, Motorola. There are numerous implementations in different programming languages. If you want to know more about Wiki you should read the "Wiki Way".
What is "AcroWiki"?
AcroWiki is yet another implementation of WikiWiki, this time for Palm Pilot. There are several variations of the WikiWiki syntax, the one we used is the same one that is used in the popular Wiki engine called "Twiki". One of the main Wiki features is collaboration. Indeed on your Palm you are the only person editing your memos. But you can sync them to your desktop and publish them online using one of the other Wiki engines for Web. Even without sharing, we found the Wiki syntax to be so easy to use that it becomes perfect way to keep personal notes.
