Fun with JSPWiki skins

I really love JSPWiki. It’s super-easy to install, doesn’t require any additional configuration for a back-end database, the native interface is quick and fast to use, and it just runs and runs. Great software.

If there’s one area however where it’s lacking, it’s in a nice selection of bundled good-looking themes. But hey, it’s free and open source software, so one is really in no position to complain – and new skins can be created using entirely standard and familiar HTML and CSS.

It’s worth noting the difference between JSPWiki templates and skins – described at http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/JSPWikiSkinDesign

After a bit of tinkering with CSS and the bundled “Smart” theme, I came up with this:

JSPWiki - modified "Smart" theme

Not the stuff of professional web design, but a definite improvement on the default theme, in my humble opinion.
