Sng gave birth to PukiWiki, and continued its development until the release of PukiWiki 1.3. Then PukiWiki Developers Team inherited the development from him. PukiWiki was originally created as PHP rewrite of perl based YukiWiki created by Hiroshi Yuki. Since its birth PukiWiki has undergone it s own evloution and now PukiWiki offers many unique functionalities YukiWiki are not capable of.
One of the stregnths of PukiWiki is that new functionalities can be easily added through plugins. Many plugins have been developed. Some plugins are "official", meaning that they are included in the PukiWiki package. And many more "unofficial" plugins have been developed and submitted to PukiWiki web site. Please refer to Pukiwiki/Plug-in Specification(in Japanese) for details on developing plugins.
