14 > [...]Anyway, I thank the XWiki team, always quick and usefull answer when we encounter an issue and a very active project and core team which is really appreciable in an open source project. We integrate a lot of opensource project in our solution and XWiki (with Keycloak) are by far the most serious and efficient team.

16 * 1st of October 2021, from Jérôme Courat in the xwiki.org feedback form:(((
17 > Been giving a try to XWiki 3 or 4 years ago, experience was painfull: tedious install, very slow learning curve (use and administration), poor performance (server side), UI was... huh... ok. Today try is definitely different: docker deployment is blazing easy and fast, learning by experiment is definitively better, user and admin ui experience is way better... kudos! Use case: friend of mine wanted kinda participative / collaborative website between sharepoint and blog. Not too social oriented, a bit like a CMS, even though not knowing what a CMS actually is... actually, sharepoint like, but for home use, to share with friends: videos, pictures, files, ideas... First try was humhub: not convincing. Today, I think I've found the solution. ;)

20 > As an aside, I must say that I’m very impressed with XWiki and what it is capable of. It seems like whatever you want to do can be done, there’s usually a setting for it somewhere and really the only challenge is sometimes finding out how.
21 > You’ve created an extremely capable platform and to be done as an open source project is also hugely commendable. This could have very easily been a closed source product. You’re engaged with the Forum and on the Matrix channel. I have to say that you’re a wonderful example of how a great open source project can be run.
22 > Just wanted to say Thank You :)

38 > This is a very old problem. I've been searching for over 30 years to find a reasonable tool that requires minimal programming, let's me build a reasonable UI (a website). I've found many that claim to be what I'm looking for but are not, and even some that are close. But never really what I'm looking for, until now.

41
42 > Eventually, I came across this tutorial with a catchy name of Creating a FAQ Application (Manual). At some point in the middle, a lightbulb appeared above my head as I realized that this is (almost) exactly what I'm looking for! Not just for this current website, but perhaps also the thing I've been searching for the last 35 years!
43
44 ...
45
46 > XWiki is the first and only tool that does that. And I don't believe mine is a just a narrow use case. The website that I've built with XWiki happens to look a lot like a wiki, but I believe everything I've said here would also apply if it was any generic non-trivial website.

106 > There are a lot of software out there to store documents, deal with live text, revisions, and collaboration... but most are just another bucket where information goes to die. XWiki is the programmable information management platform. As a platform, you can expand it with functions that make sense to input, link, display, report, and pretty much everything you need to do with your information to achieve your business outcomes. Plus, you don't need to be a hardcore programmer to get to use it efficiently.

There is no excuse not to register our day by day discoveries in it. We share documents and wiki pages among the staff, replacing old pseudo-collaborative tools. And the search is amazing! If you need something more specific, there are extensions with zero effort to aggregate - they are just a few clicks away from you. We had ZERO problems with it. I highly recommend adopting XWiki.
