XWiki is a second-generation wiki. What we mean by this is that XWiki is a wiki, but it also is an application development platform in its own right. An application is a set of pages that adds new functionality to the wiki - such as a blog or a task manager.

XWiki offers both the features expected from a professional wiki (such as powerful access rights and user management) and the possibility to create new applications on top of the platform. This means that you can extend the wiki's feature set with new ones pretty easily. For instance, you could create a FAQ or an application to manage product sheets.

XWiki comes with a number of applications built-in, detailed on the Features page.

A list of applications and macros for XWiki is available on the extensions wiki.
