A commercial wiki. Confluence is a shared whiteboard wiki, whereas TWiki is a shared whiteboard and a StructuredWiki to write TWikiApplications.

To do: Create a competitive comparison table; write a "TWiki in a Nutshell for Confluence Customers" (similar to the one in the JotSpot topic)


Now they have build a Universal Wiki Converter, to convert from other wikies to Confluence. Once of the supported formats is TWiki.

In other words, it is time to create a ConfluenceToTWikiAddOn, among other existing Tag:import tools smile

Hm, Confluence isn't nearly as expensive as I would have guessed. See (german) prices and compare them with TWIKI.NET pricing.

On the other hand, there is only one way to use Confluence, and only one company that can publish fixes - whereas TWiki has more than just TWIKI.NET that does support, and anyone can fix, improve, and influence anything, anytime.

I just checked confluence again. It is no real alternative to TWiki compared by plugins and their quality.

-- MartinSeibert - 10 Jun 2008

Confluence value lies in that it is:

  • much cheaper than TWiki.net
  • integrated in a global offering that together make a one-stop "sourceforge like". Get a SVN repo, and add Jira, Fisheye, Crowd, ... you get a killer cheap package for the specific needs of small/medium development groups (they may lack a mailing list tool however)
Granted, it is less versatile, robust and flexible than TWiki. But it is more adapted to some markets.

Since 10 Jul 2008 it has a SharePoint Connector frown

Some good news instead: there shall be Mockups support for TWiki.

-- FranzJosefGigler - 24 Jul 2008

We should try to focus on a detailed review of Confluence on a feature basis. What does it provide as features, that TWiki does not and vice versa. Also an opinion on the usability would be good. Does anybody have access to a confluence-impementation.

Carlo: Didn't you say, you had?

Hi Guys, have a look at - http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/ConfluenceToTWikiAddOn

-- SopanShewale - 06 Aug 2008

Yep, we have a hugue, huge Confluence installation at IBM, some 300.000 pages in total I believe... We'll see if I find some time to write some quick notes about it

-- CarloSchulz - 10 Aug 2008

That would be great.
