JINGO is an Open-source Git-based CMS and Wiki engine

What is JINGO?

JINGO is a git based wiki engine and CMS written for Node.js, with a decent design, a search capability and a good typography.

In this post, we will reveal Jingo's amazing features and how can you install it on your system.


  • No database: Jingo uses a git repository as the document archive
  • Markdown for everything, GitHub flavored
  • Jingo uses Codemirror or Markitup as the markup editor, with a nice (ajax) preview (see the features key in the config file)
  • It provides a "distraction free", almost full screen editing mode
  • Comes with a built-in full-text search and indexing options
  • Compatible with a wiki created with the Gollum wiki
  • Revision history for all the pages (with restore)
  • Straightforward customization options
  • Show differences between document revisions
  • Paginated list of all the pages, with a quick way to find changes between revisions
  • Search through the content and the page names
  • Page layout accepts custom sidebar and footer
  • Gravatar support
  • Can include IFRAMEs in the document (ex: embed a Google Drive document)
  • Generate Table of Contents for pages
  • Can use custom CSS and JavaScript scripts
  • White list for authorization on page reading and writing
  • Detects unwritten pages (which will appear in red)
  • Automatically push to a remote (optionally)
  • Mobile friendly (based on Bootstrap 3.x)
  • Quite configurable, but also works out of the box
  • Works well behind a proxy (i.e.: the wiki can be "mounted" as a directory in another website)
  • Pages can be embedded into another site
  • Authentication via Google, GitHub, LDAP and local name/password
  • Code-friendly: comes with a rich syntax highlighter that supports dozens of languages
  • Supports Google and GitHub logins
