Major Features Missing In Tiki

Many open source web applications have a large number of features available as add-ons. They need to be installed separately and there are often several add-ons for the same purpose.

Instead, the Tiki community uses an all-in-one Model. One of the consequences is that Tiki is the FOSS Web Application with the most built-in features.

Not only has this been true for a quite a while now, but Tiki also has a much faster than average release schedule, with 2 major releases per year.


Even with all the features, there are still several hundred feature requests. But most of these are requests for enhancements to an existing feature. Once a feature is in the code base and is basically usable, it usually evolves naturally/organically. In each Tiki version, most features are refined at least a bit. Some like Webmail need a lot of work. But at least, it's a start.

But when a feature is totally absent, it takes a spark to make it happen and take it to the level where is starts evolving naturally/organically.

What does Tiki not do yet? (please base your answers on latest code). You can also check out the list of Use Cases for more ideas. See also: Interesting Features from other Web apps

  • A well-defined API for building applications on top of, or integrating application into Tiki. People often say this but without a specific exemple, it's difficult to follow-up upon. Current plugins structure is very efficient to interface with 3rd party services. Can you give 2-3 specific examples of applications or types of applications you have in mind? Thanks! --marclaporte


Major features missing from main code base, but available with 3rd party mods or workarounds

  • Learning Management features like Moodle (gradebook, class management, etc.) though Tiki does have some 3rd party mods for this
  • E-democracy system (we have polls and such but it's not the same as a full-fledged voting/election system)
  • Online Help (not d.tw.o)-dthacker / marclaporte: can you explain a little more?
  • Event Management system : while most of this can be done by using the wiki, calendar and user trackers, it's too difficult for someone new to Tiki. Added to Use Cases
  • Have a calendar in the main code base. Either including Mod extcalculator, Mod calculator or another...


Incomplete features

Please Add to Wishlist instead

  • External Authentication
    • Interface with SiteMinder (http://www.ca.com) (similar to InterTiki, except yield to SiteMinder for authentication as an enterprise-wide intranet authenticator)
  • Debian and Ubuntu Packaging Team
  • VMware and Xen virtual appliances
  • Trackbacks in blogs

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
