NoSQL: a non-SQL RDBMS
How to edit this Wiki
Authorized editors, i.e. those who register an account with this Wiki, can create and modify the content of existing pages, delete or redirect pages, and create new pages. The underlying "engine" that powers the system is called TypeWriter, or TW for short, a basic Wiki, Blog, and CMS engine which I have been developing for the last couple of years, and which I'm using with a fair degree of success to back a number of web sites. The system offers also basic online shopping facilities, mainly targeted at small to medium retail businesses. The program will eventually be released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), but I am not really ready to package it for public distribution yet, so if anyone would like to get a copy of the program they will have to be patient :-)

You can either enter your account and password in the relevant box, or you may want to sign-in through OpenID. For OpenID authentication to work you must enter your preferred OpenID URL in the registration form when you apply for an account.

At your option, even if you have registered with OpenID, you will always be able also to sign-in by entering your account name and password directly in the relevant boxes.
Creating new pages
Just replace the Wiki page name portion in the current URL (i.e. everything after the rightmost slash
Like most Wikis, this one allows you to create a new page also by inserting the page name in the text of an existing page enclosed in double brackets, like in
When a page links to another Wiki page which does not yet exist, the link is followed by a question mark, again a common Wiki convention.
Pages may be logically grouped in "categories", to help better organize content. The first dot in a page name is the category delimiter, so a page named
Page names are case-insensitive, although they are usually case-preserving, so
When you create/edit a page you may enter an optional short page description, a one-liner that will be used instead of the page name in some of the automated listings or views produced by TW. The default description will be
This Wiki engine implements the concept of "categories". A category is a set of pages which names begin with a common "stem", separated from the rest of the page name by a single dot. Let's say you want to define a category called "Operators", containing one page for each NoSQL operator, you will create an
