If your open source project needs a wiki, GitHub will leave you saying “My PRECIOUS!” After much anticipation, GitHub has finally taken the curtain down on their new git-powered wikis.

What’s new

  • Reverence images and folders in your Git project.

  • Markdown support!

  • Local previewing

You’ll need to upgrade to the new wiki from within your GitHub project admin page.

As part of the rollout, they’ve also released Gollum the Ruby library that powers the new GitHub wikis. Gollumn also includes an embedded Sinatara server to preview your content.
