Semantic Media Wiki

PHP. Worth the security risk ?

Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages.

Semantic MediaWiki is also a full-fledged framework, in conjunction with many spinoff extensions, that can turn a wiki into a powerful and flexible knowledge management system.

All data created within SMW can easily be published via the Semantic Web, allowing other systems to use this data seamlessly.

... helps to search, organise, tag, browse, evaluate, and share the wiki's content. While traditional wikis contain only text which computers can neither understand nor evaluate, SMW adds semantic annotations that allow a wiki to function as a collaborative database ...

... consider the category on Wikipedia called "1620s births"; if the information in these pages were stored using SMW, these categories could be replaced by simple semantic values, reducing the need for a complex classification system.

In addition, if semantic markup within the wiki is stored within templates, otherwise known as semantic templates, a wiki can easily gain a solid data structure. And the Semantic Forms extension lets administrators create forms for adding and editing the data within semantic templates, thus making the addition of semantic information even easier and more straightforward than using regular wiki text.
