Testing ikiwiki to generate static wiki pages

Today I decided to test Ikiwiki to generate static HTML pages.

How to install:

$ sudo apt-get install ikiwiki

How to configure:

$ ikiwiki --setup /etc/ikiwiki/auto.setup

How to update modifications after editing HackerPlace.setup file:

$ ikiwiki --setup HackerPlace.setup

Adding a new theme!

I decided to add a night_city theme (other themes:

$ git clone git://
$ sudo mv night_city /usr/share/ikiwiki/themes/

To choose this theme, edit HackerPlace.setup and add:

# theme plugin
# name of theme to enable
theme: night_city

Now update your HTML files enabling theme plugin:

$ ikiwiki --setup HackerPlace.setup --plugin theme
