Main difference is that where Yeeki uses Markdown for formatting, SimpleYeeki uses the SimpleWiki markup language (swml) specification, and their parser/emitter PHP5 module.
Yeeki is a flexible wiki engine that can be used either as a standalone application or as an Yii framework module.
By default it uses markdown syntax with addition of wiki-links.
- Unicode support
- page index
- revision history
- ability to view specific revision
- ability to enter change summary for edit and view it at revision history page
- revision diff
- multiple markup dialects support (only markdown provided out of the box)
- cross-linking with wiki-links
- theming support
- i18n support
Currently in order to use Yeeki you need MySQL with InnoDB engine enabled. In the future it is planned to allow using it with MyISAM and PostgreSQL.
Also server should be able to run Yii framework.
