LabWiki is a free open-source textfile-based laboratory-friendly wiki system based on David Barrett's Qwiki Wiki v1.5.

Product history

LabWiki was created by Santosh Patnaik in May 2006 as a fork of David Barrett's Qwiki Wiki v1.5.[1][2] Development seemed to have ceased until a 1.0.1 release was made on April 14, 2010. Development has since continued on it alongside other open-source laboratory informatics products like LabStoRe and OrderSys through the PHP Project, hosted through the Bioinformatics Organization, a group dedicated to hosting collaboration projects in the field of bioinformatics.

These are the known release dates of stable LabWiki releases[1][3]:
