Moinmoin wiki on uWSGI docker container

What is MoinMoin?

MoinMoin is an advanced, easy to use and extensible WikiEngine with a large
community of users. Said in a few words, it is about collaboration on easily
editable web pages.

How to use this image

Hosting a simple wiki (still needs a web server in front of it)

sudo docker run -it --name wiki -p 3031:3031 -d dperson/moinmoin

Complex configuration

sudo docker run -it --name wiki -d dperson/moinmoin
sudo docker run -it --name web --link wiki:wiki -p 80:80 -p 443:443 -d \
            dperson/nginx -u "wiki:3031;/wiki"

A separate nginx site file for moinmoin is available from:

Default Admin user is set to 'mmAdmin'. To use, create a new user named
'mmAdmin' and set your desired password. Volums are used, to ease backups, etc.


sudo docker run -it --rm dperson/moinmoin -h

Usage: [-opt] [command]
Options (fields in '[]' are optional, '<>' are required):
    -h          This help
    -p "</prefix>" Configure URI prefix for wiki, if you want other than
                /wiki required arg: "</prefix>" - URI location
    -s "<super>" Configure superuser (admin ID) for the wiki
                required arg: "<UserName>" - The user to manage the wiki
