Semantic MediaWiki is an extension of MediaWiki – a widely used wiki-engine that also powers Wikipedia. Its aim is to make semantic technologies available to a broad community by smoothly integrating them with the established usage of MediaWiki. The software is already used on a number of productive installations world-wide, but the main target remains to establish “Semantic Wikipedia” as an early adopter of semantic technologies on the web. Thus usability and scalability are as important as powerful semantic features.
