DokuWiki: An elegant and lightweight wiki engine

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 76.103.137.65] on July 04, 2008 12:24 AM
Can DocWiki help me create documentation, or is it just a wiki? In other words, can it export a set of pages as docbook XML, latex, ODT, or something similar?

I don't want to knock it, but I am curious if there is something better for collaborative online documentation than what I have chosen for Kino[1]. The Kino User Guide wiki exports easily to docbook XML, which I use to generate the online help for the application. I did find this thing called DocBook DocuWiki[2]; however, it appears to only facilitate a single page as docbook document whereas DocBookWiki[3] lets you use the wiki tech for managing the entire document.
