SweetWiki, a semantic wiki, supports all the common wiki features such as easy page linking using WikiWords, versioning, etc., but also innovates by integrating a WYSIWYG editor extended to support social tagging functionalities, embedded SPARQL queries etc., masking the OWL-based annotation implementation. Users can freely enter tags and an auto-completion mechanism suggests existing ones by issuing queries to identify existing concepts with compatible labels. Thus tagging is both easy and motivating (real time display of the number of related pages) and concepts are collected in folksonomies. Wiki pages are stored directly in XHTML or in JSPX format, embedding semantic annotations (RDFa and GRDDL) ready to be reused by other software.
SweetWiki was distributed to several communities of practice in the framework of the Palette project.
SweetWiki is used as wiki of the consortium of the e-WOK_HUB ANR RNTL project.
A robotics (RoboSoft) company uses SweetWiki for parts of its intranet and parts of its public community site
Informal tests: we have carried out experiments with children, teachers, students and secretaries asking them to use it for one of their daily tasks.
Sweetwiki will be distributed as open source software under CeCill-C licence.
