XWiki is also a second generation wiki. You can build simple applications, extend the platform with custom plugins, or even build complex Web applications. The Getting Started guide only covers basic use cases for users and admins, however, there are plenty of resources for Developers as well in the documentation. XWiki's powerful programming features are documented in the Developer's Guide. A number of applications are pre-installed but additional applications, macros and other extensions are available on the Extensions wiki. The documentation for the XWiki Rendering has a dedicated wiki.
For documentation related to the development of XWiki itself, visit the XWiki Development Zone.
