This is a template in the modernist vein, which I have mixed feelings about. Nonetheless, the idea is to make a wiki as simple and easy-to-use as an evil corporate platform like Google Docs. It is designed to match the look and feel people are familiar with and be comfy to read on a desktop or phone.

Suggested DokuWiki customizations


IMPORTANT: This template has a unique contextual button in the nav bar. To make it as straightforward as possible, I use custom localizations in DokuWiki. If you don't use these, the template will not display properly on small screens.

For english, I suggest adding the following in your conf/lang/en/lang.php file. (See changing_some_localized_texts_and_strings_in_your_installation for details.)

$lang['btn_edit']        = 'Edit';
$lang['btn_show']        = 'Cancel';
$lang['btn_create']      = 'Create';
$lang['loggedinas']      = '';
$lang['lastmod']         = 'Last edit was';

Para español (conf/lang/es/lang.php):

$lang['btn_edit']        = 'Editar';
$lang['btn_show']        = 'Cancelar';
$lang['btn_create']      = 'Crear';
$lang['loggedinas']      = '';

Custom Editor Icons

I made some custom retina icons for the edit bar (based on Microns). They're not the greatest, but they do go with the theme's colors a bit better. You can find them in the “extras” folder. To use, just move the png files to lib/images/toolbar/. Keep a backup of the standard ones to be safe.

This template overwrites the default dokuwiki link styles for the sake of consistency and simplicity.

Plugin Compatibility

Looks pretty with nspages and discussion.

That's it...

Do something cool, take back control of information from the corporate overlords. Center BIPOC women in your wiki project. PRs welcome.
