The Joyful Programmer’s Main Site (This one):

This primary site is intended to be more of an informational site about various computer programming topics. Here are some features you will find here:

  • Tiki Wiki: A modern day Wiki system which offers an intelligent and powerful WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML/Wiki editor. The Tiki Wiki editor makes the creation of Wiki documents painless, fast, and easy with a wide range of features:
    • Standard text effects: Bold, Italics, Underline, text color, text background, Subscript, Superscript
    • Quotes & Comments
    • Table creations
    • Bullet Points & Numbered Lists
    • Graphs and Charts
    • Images
    • YouTube videos
    • Graphical Equations
    • Bibliographies
    • …and many more…

    What does this mean for Wiki page creators?
    It means: No more learning complex Wiki markups just to do the most simplest function. On top of that, you can view the Wiki page source code and add HTML, as-well-as CSS to all HTML tags.

    Tiki Wiki page creators can now focus on creating content instead of trying to code it.

    The Tiki Wiki HTML editor also offers a “Full Screen” mode that allows you to use the entire browser window for editing a page, instead of just a small section. This allows your Tiki Wiki page creation and editing experiences to be more engaging.
