Gollum Wikipedia Browser

Category: Showcase

Gollum is a “browser within a browser” app specialised for wikipedia reading. The aim is provide a simpler interface and some value-add features.


Rendering a wiki with an Ajax app is also an idea used in the Ajax Patterns Reader (featured earlier). There are also Ajax wikipedia mashups like Placeopedia. All of this will likely be followed by more of the wikis themselves adopting Ajax features: Jotspot is into Ajax in a big way, but the open-source wiki engines – including mediawiki, which powers wikipedia – haven’t done much Ajax to date.

Speaking of ajax wikis…The Atlas team has released an ajax wiki starter kit.
One problem I noticed with a large ajax app like this…visual studio’s design mode. Everything shows up at once and it all overlaps. Its almost impossible to use design mode when working with it.

All it seems to do is strip out the top and left nav. Kinda silly if you ask me.
