This is the simplest of all the modes from WikiModes. All it does is add a keybinding to insert some tags, and the hilighting of tags plus WikiNames. If you are editing wiki pages within Emacs, this is quite elegant.

The original SimpleWikiMode got incorporated into EmacsHttp.


This requires two steps:

Getting the wiki page into Emacs: Some browsers allow you to define an external editor for text areas. This is where you must set emacs, emacsclient, or gnuclient as your editor.

Activating simple-wiki-mode for these pages: This usually exploits some naming convention for the browser’s temporary files. Here is an example for w3m:

    (require 'really-simple-wiki)
    (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("w3mtmp" . really-simple-wiki-mode))


Use the following code to have ‘C-c C-t’ insert tags.

    (autoload 'sgml-tag "sgml-mode" t)
    (define-key really-simple-wiki-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-t") 'sgml-tag)

If you are using PsgmlMode, beware of name conflicts and help fix the situation.


If you are using OpeningQuote, add:

    (add-hook 'really-simple-wiki-mode-hook
              (lambda ()
                (local-set-key (kbd "'") 'maybe-open-apostrophe)))


This is what I often use:

    (add-hook 'really-simple-wiki-mode-hook 'turn-on-auto-fill)
