TWiki Applications

Web applications with forms and reports that resides in TWiki pages.... They are realized as integrated sets of TWiki topics (and sometimes TWikiExtensions) that together implement a particular functionality. See introduction and how-to, and see some sample applications in Sandbox web. See TWikiTerminology for related terminology.

Wanted Applications

Application What you'd like it to do text
Add content and mail Allow someone to add an article, and then email it to a predefined list. I guess it would be nice to have another widget that allowed people to add/remove themselves from that list as well.  
TWikiNewsletterApplication Format a topic as a newsletter and send page as an HTML email newsletter. I think is this similar to what Martin proposed above.  
TWikiNewsPortal Published as a NewsPortalPlugin?  
TWikiThreadedDiscussion Better organization of a discussion topic  
SarBoxDocumentManagement Manage regulatory compliance documentation  
SalesForceAutomation Help customer relationship management See SFA
BlogForTWiki Everything that a blog does, including trackback and ping  
TimesheetApplication Have a set of projects; allocate time to each. Maybe a start/stop timer  
ExpensesApplication A spreadsheet for expenses. Surely simple to build, needed by all companies  
PrinceTwoProjectManagement Set of integrated templates conforming to UK PM standards  
TWikEcommerceApp TWiki Native Shopping Cart Solution for E-Commerce Applications  
TimeSheetApps Track time given by Individuals on each Project/Assig  
TWiki's Support Web Be packaged as a formal TWikiApplication

It would be great for practical handling and TWikiAdvocacy. I've also red TWikiForRequirementsManagement, CustomerRelationshipManagement, TWikiAsABookmarkManager and TWikiForBookAuthoring.

Martin's site brings a survey about KM use of TWiki

-- BenoitFauvel - 19 Sep 2003 - 14 Oct 2004

Have posted a modification to TrippLilley 's TopicVarsPlugin that should allow users to bundle sets of searches as vars on topics. For instance, a user can set up an application easily

  1. They don't need to learn Perl
  2. They don't need sys admin privleges
  3. They can glean best practices into topic for easy distribution.
Please try it and tell me what you think.

Great idea to collect up a summary of the various applications that people have built on top of TWiki. I am not quite sure whether the above list is representative, though.

TWiki is also not quite as friendly as it could as an application development platform. See the note in TWikiWhatWillYouBeWhenYouGrowUp for suggestions as to how TWiki can play a better role as an application development platform.

Needs merging from ExampleWebFormApplications

-- MartinCleaver - 21 Oct 2004

I have tried the TopicClassificationAddOn and liked it. I think that some sort of default "classification" forms should be part of the TWiki. For this to happen, there is a need to agree on a standard way of classification. should it be based on the old "TopicClassification" on TWiki.org ? should it be based on the TopicClassificationAddOn ?

-- AviYagodnick - 12 Sep 2005

Avi, I'm delighted you found TopicClassificationAddOn useful! Are you suggesting that some kind of form-based classification be pre-configured with the default distribution of TWiki? I've thought about this before and do feel that most users would find something like TopicClassificationAddOn pre-installed in TWiki very useful. Agreeing on a standard classification to include is the tricky part since people use TWiki in so many different ways.

Perhaps we're just a bit premature. There's been talk about after DakarRelease to provide a variety of TWikiFor - distributions pre-configured for different uses. That would lend itself to providing pre-configured classification schemes taylored to the different uses.

How about RiskDatabase

-- SueBlake - 07 Mar 2006

Is there a glossary maker application? One that would allow entry of glossary words and definitions and automatically alphabetize and have an 0-9/A-Z menu at the top of the page.

-- TWikiGuest - 02 May 2006

At my previous workplace we built a corporate glossary that had some structure. The structure allowed one to run reports, such as to list tech pubs related terms, or to generate an employee handbook for new hires (different reports for managers and individual contributors.)

-- PeterThoeny - 11 May 2006

There are many WikiChampions out there who create wiki applications for in-house use. They need components. They build everything from scratch. We can build up a new TWikiApplicationCommunity and create a marketplace where wiki champions can share their apps and components. You are invited to join the discussion in TWikiAppPackageHowToDiscussion.

-- PeterThoeny - 11 May 2006

Peter, we are building a glossary like you describe, and for some of the same purposes. I wonder if you have any examples we might look at? Our glossary has been compiled using some variation of the FAQ templates found here. But I'm wondering what we might add to make it more useful.
