My country is going through difficult times. I want to create a mostly graphical timeline of events in a wiki like fashion. I want everyone who wants to get involved to contribute and comment. What is my best option?


You can use timeline.js. The data back end can be a google spreadsheet. This is an open source project so at any point when you have someone to help you out with development you can do that to.


and on github https://github.com/VeriteCo/TimelineJS


Timeglider is a free web-based application that allows you to create timelines with the option to collaborate (though I don't know that it's as open as a wiki, per se). Dipity is another similar application with collaboration as an option.

StudyVibe also has a listing of several Timeline Creation Tools.

  • I am trying them one by one. So far, no wiki-like editing. None of them seems to be suitable for events in progress that are minutes or hours apart. Unfortunately I am not a web developer, so I can't start such a project. But I believe I can contribute. – niw3 Jun 4 '13 at 22:08

I think proofhub is a free web based application that can help you. It has features like time tracking, assigning a task to multiple users, to-do's, discussions and many more. I hope you will like this tool and find it useful for your work.
