The Growi Wiki was forked by Crowi Wiki.

The Growi Wiki is useful, contanerble.

And it can use the full text search (Elastic Search) and relations with the CodiMD.

NOTE: Now, Growi Wiki recruit new members about contributing localization of English by Slack. If you would like to interest, lets try to join to Growi Slack.
