Tiki, or WikiSuite?

posts: 753 United States

Can someone explain what the major difference between WikiSuite, and Tiki?
They both on the cover appear to be the same. I know they are not, but when would someone choose WikiSuite over Tiki?

WikiSuite includes Tiki, and thus offers all Tiki's features.

WikiSuite also provides you access with features Tiki doesn't have. Ex. Tiki can't sync your files. For this, WikiSuite uses Syncthing. Please see list of components (click on each to read up on what they do): http://wikisuite.org/Software-Components

Tiki can run anywhere PHP can run (just about anywhere, including shared hosting).
WikiSuite requires your own server. This is inexpensive nowadays, compared to a decade ago.
