Thanks for all the feedbacks.

On to specifics...

- The link color is too light for me.

Yes, it seems to be a common complain :)

Will adjust the color palette to make the link look less, hmmm, faded...

- Could you add syntax highlighting à la

Perhaps. Does anyone has a simple function that would turn a Lua string into a formatted one?

- What about the Lua logo?  That should be there as well.

Perhaps. This is an out-of-the-box installation of Nanoki, so no attempt has been made to customize it for specific needs. If the demo gain sufficient traction, then definitively yes.

I agree w/ the Link color being a little problematic.

Definitely something to work on then :)

Also... I'd strongly recommend against fixed-width...

Yes, agree. I favor a liquid layout myself, but... blueprint doesn't provide one at the moment... rumor has it that it might be in the work though...

One thing you may want to do is make it more noticeable how you can edit a page.

Hmmm... in Nanoki there is only one action: "click on the title".

A page:

A page editor:

A page revision history:

A revision:

A revision diff:

Note how the breadcrumbs reflect the URL:

Main → Nanoki → Editor → Revision → № 2 → № 2 Δ № 3

 Why is the font size for the body of the page set to 75%?

Default blueprint value :)

Perhaps worthwhile revisiting.

The URLs have changed from, for example, to .  Granted,
the former redirects to the latter, but is there really a good
reason for changing link format?

Yes, this is Nanoki's canonical name representation as Nanoki doesn't do WikiWords.

Is there a way to insert a code block without indenting every


I miss having change log messages on the Recent (Changes) list
as well viewing the change history on an individual page.

The revision history details are available for each page, e.g.:

I don't see any real use for the Date link and calendar (i.e.
looking up changes made on a certain date).
The Index link is not strictly necessary

Both the date and index page are there to give a sense of space and depth to something (a wiki) which is essentially flat. They also provide a way to explore the existing content in manageable, organized chunks.

since on the existing
wiki one obtains such a list by doing a search with the search
box empty (which works on Nanoki too)

Yes, but that only works for rather small wiki such as, as one cannot realistically lists thousands of pages all at once.

Nanoki allows a page to be assigned title different than the
page name.  For example, I changed the title of from "Sand Box" to
"Sand Box Test".  When would these two names be different?

Much of the time I would guess, e.g.:

"El Aaiún"

The page name is a location, with same syntactical constrains. The title, while related to the page name, doesn't have any constrains.

You seem to suggest that Sputnik is somehow more complicated or bigger
than Nanoki.  I am wondering what makes you think so.

Perhaps Sputnik and Nanoki are meant for difference audience. Sputnik appears more as a developer framework providing many choices and options, Nanoki is more of an end user application providing solutions instead of options.

In any case, looking forward for the Sputnik powered demo of the lua- wiki.

Many thanks for all the feedbacks. Keep them coming! :)
