AcroWiki

Home page: http://www.acrocat.com/AcroWiki/

This is a repackage of HWiki. It's not being distributed by a company called Acrocat and cost $15. It's main virtue (at least for TWiki-users) is that it's syntax is a direct subset of TWiki syntax. That, combined with the fact that it stores topics in Palm memos, means you could draft a AcroWiki topic on your palm and then cut and paste directly into TWiki. I haven't been able to figure a way to directly sync from Palm memos to my TWiki installation.

pilot-link makes this trivial via its memos command:

Usage: memos

  Manipulate Memo entries from a file or your Palm device

  By default, the contents of your Palm's memo database will be written to
  standard output as a standard UNIX mailbox (mbox-format) file, with each
  memo as a separate message.  The subject of each message will be the
  category.

Now that I recently bought a Treo 650 and discovered AcroWiki for the first time, I'm hoping to find time to set up my own TWiki installation as a personal knowledge base/blog etc. and hack some scripts together for syncing with AcroWiki for offline editing. My first thought was to use something like unison to handle the basic synchronisation between TWiki backend *.txt files and the memos output from the memo command. Some simple shell wrappings could handle the permissioning issues and also check any new changes from the AcroWiki end into the *.txt,v RCS files. One challenge is that the TWiki side tracks revision numbers, but AcroWiki doesn't; need to think more about this.

You should look at the SyncContrib (& I guess its time I flushed my development copy up to SVN)
