I want to do a wiki for documentation of my project, but I develop it in some different places, so I want to have all the information of the wiki on my pendrive.

There is some way to do all the information work on it? Maybe a portable version of the server and the database? Maybe something ready to do this?

I will try another look at TiddlyWiki, but I'm running MediaWiki from my pen using MoWes – Renato Dinhani Conceição Jul 12 '11 at 18:09

TiddlyWiki would work well.

I use MoWeS Portable, it'll set up a webserver, db and mediawiki install all usable from a usb pendrive.

The hyperlink above is for the instructions on the mediawiki site and links to where you download the MoWeS package.

I got MoWes and worked, but can I add softwares that are not in the list of sofwares of it? – Renato Dinhani Conceição Jul 11 '11 at 18:10

From the portable point of view, I recommend the followings:

  • Ikiwiki
    • Wiki compiler to generate static HTML so that you can see that anyplace.
  • Juli
    • I developed it for my personal knowledge management.

You may have more detailed situation and requirements so that it would be helpful for us to recommend you to choose a tool.
