A git based wiki

I decided that I wanted to document all the ideas in my head in a Wiki instead of Google Docs. I use git and vi a lot and like to have access to the text files backing anything. So I was excited to find WiGit.

WiGit is a php-based wiki that stores everything in Textile-formatted flat files in a git repository. 10 minutes and I had a wiki and a git clone of it on my laptop. I can edit things locally and push them back to the web server and the wiki automatically reflects the changes. Of course, the pages can be edited through the web interface too.

The power of Git as a web-based wiki is really awsome.
