MediaWiki's Visual Editor really saves your contributors the pain of having to learn an obscure new markup syntax.
I wrote my own installation guide here.
I once wasted a significant amount of time doing the whole installation manually. I'll now recommend installing FreedomBox on the bare metal server and using its 1-click installer to install MediaWiki. Then install the Visual Editor manually using my guide.

The Key Principles of the IndieWeb.
— Own your data, content, metadata and your identity.
— Publish data for humans first, machines second.
— Scratch Your Own Itches. Make tools, templates, etc. for yourself first.
— Use what you make!
— Document your stuff.
— Open source your stuff!
— UX and design is more important than protocols, formats, and data models.
— Build platform agnostic platforms.
— Longevity. Build for the long web.
— Have fun.
As promised, version 1.0 of #PeerTube, a free and federated video platform, has just been released.
Thanks to all the people who supported this summer's crowdfunding.
This is only the beginning!

Libre Computer's La Frite is a $10 ARM computer launching in November 2018.
The #FreedomBox project was announced by Eben Moglen in a speech at ISOC-NY in 2010 titled, "Freedom in the Cloud."
It inspired our first developers and countless #privacy activists.
A win for private cloud: Nearly 250 users per day sign up for a #nextcloud account through our clients or the web interface and that number is growing fast. Using a provider you can trust matters a great deal!
Major win for @nextcloud: they earn 250 new users per day!
In 2010, we said that your freedom depends on your ability to escape centralized cloud servers owned by tech giants.
Back then, that sounded impossible.
Now, it's a realistic option--and people are taking advantage!
It will require contributions from people involved in the respective projects since no one person might know about all the projects.
As a first step, we should come up with the attributes to compare them against (the columns of the table).

So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.
How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: https://www.patreon.com/cwebber
Wish me luck. More updates soon.
