Installing gitit

For debian/Ubuntu users check Gitit on Ubuntu

  1. Install the Haskell Platform for your operating system. (You can skip this if you already have GHC >= version 6.10 and cabal-install on your system.)

  2. Install git if you don’t already have it.

  3. Install gitit:

    cabal update
    cabal install gitit
  4. Run gitit:

    mkdir mywiki
    cd mywiki
    gitit
  5. Enjoy the fruits of your labor: browse to http://localhost:5001/.

Notes:

  1. Gitit has not been tested on Windows and may only run on unix-based systems.

  2. If you want to enable syntax highlighting of delimited code blocks, you should first install pandoc with the highlighting flag:

    cabal install --reinstall -fhighlighting pandoc
    cabal install --reinstall gitit
  3. If you don’t plan to use plugins and want gitit to have a smaller memory footprint, disable the plugins flag:

    cabal install --reinstall -f-plugins gitit
