TypeMediaWiki extension

SMW+ is an open-source software bundle composed of the wiki application MediaWiki along with a number of its extensions, that was developed by the German software company Ontoprise GmbH from 2007 to 2012. In 2012, Ontoprise GmbH filed for bankruptcy[1] and went out of business. DIQA-Projektmanagement GmbH, a start-up founded by former Ontoprise employees,[2] now offers support for the software in SMW+, though under the name "DataWiki".


SMW+'s extensions include, most notably, Semantic MediaWiki and the Halo Extension. Cumulatively, SMW+ functions as a semantic wiki, and is also meant to serve as an enterprise wiki for use within companies, for applications such as knowledge management and project management.

The SMW+ platform was available in a number of formats including a Windows installer, Linux installer and VMware image.

SMW+ emerged from Project Halo, a research project meant to provide a platform for collaborative knowledge engineering for domain experts in the biology, chemistry and physics at the first stage.
