Wiky is neither an editor nor a widget, though it might be used by these. It is just a converter.
The primary object of Wiky's development was its use in a lightweight eLearning environment. It had to meet the requirements:
- Clientside only.
- Creating validating XHTML markup, which is cross browser with no need of plugins or addons.
- Minimal CSS dependency.
- Suitable for inplace editing with Ajax components and weblogs.
- Easily extensible and modifyable Syntax.
