Wiki additions

By on March 9, 2009

Just this weekend we rolled out some exciting new changes, wiki-wize. 3 brand new things, actually!

1. /help/ is now a wiki

Yep. And it’s editable by anyone, so feel free to contribute! Anything you think might benefit others will do.

2. Wikis are globally editable

That means you no longer have to be a writer of a repository to be able to edit its wiki. All that is required is that you’re logged into Bitbucket.

Sounds kinda scary, but we’re trying it and we’ll see how it goes. Since you need an account, if anyone messes up your wiki, you can always see who it was.

3. The new “Table Of Contents” macro

This is something a lot of people have asked for, and we think we’ve delivered! The new macro allows you to generate a TOC for your page, but it goes way beyond that.

It can also generate TOCs for other files, or even a directory of files. On top of that, it takes an optional argument indicating how many header-levels it should include.

So

<<toc>>

works, but so does

<<toc FAQ/>>

,

<<toc OtherPage/MaybeInSubDir>>

and

<<toc FAQ/ 2>>

!

This is how we construct the FAQ section on http://bitbucket.org/help/.

The wiki there is itself a repository, so in case you want an offline copy, or your own fork, go for it.

    I’m really glad you pinged me on Twitter, as I had no idea this blog was here announcing all these great features I didn’t know about.

    TOC was one of the things I was going to ask about. TOC for file directory?! That may be JUST what I needed. Nice touch.

    Mark S. is definitely on the right track. If you want to get a professional looking email address, Id recommend buying your name domain name, like or

    If its common it might be difficult to get, however, be creative and you can usually find something.

    Very well said. I never thought I would agree with this opinion, but I’m starting to view things from a different view. I have to research more on this as it seems very interesting. One thing I don’t understand though is how everything is related together.
