FAQ:

How can I create a simple TWiki Forms based application?

Answer:

TWiki applications help automate workflows you have at the workplace. TWiki has a built-in database that can be used to write custom web applications. These are wiki applications that run in TWiki.

A typical TWiki forms based application consists of the following pages:

  • Application home page, typically containing links to other application pages. It may contain also a report showing data records.
  • Form definition page, defining the fields of a record. Details in TWikiForms.
  • Template page, used as a template for new data records. It is essentially a TWiki page with a form attached to it. Details in TWikiTemplates.
  • Header page: Optional page included in each record page to summarize the record.
  • Page with an HTML form to create new records.
  • Report page(s). Details in VarSEARCH and FormattedSearch.

TWiki.org has a blog post on How to Create a TWiki Application where you can learn the details.
