git: the stupid NOSQL database

There are so many ways to use git. Manage your source code, handle large directories of files with git-annex, run a decentralized wiki or blog. View this talk and get inspired

The speaker is the author of Gollum, the wiki system used by Github. I tried it yesterday and it’s really easy to setup and seems to work very well.

To get gollum running, open a terminal and execute

gem install gollum
git init
gollum

This will install gollum, create a new git repository (preferably in a new and empty folder but I wanted to keep the example short) and starts a wiki webserver on port 4567 that is reading/writing to this repository.
