Hello,

My UX team is currently looking for a good solution to manage our
styleguide, which is our specs and models maintain for the development team.
Right now it's straight up HTML pages which has become quite cumbersome. I
was thinking of implementing a wiki CMS to better organize and manage our
Styleguide. Anyone have any experience with this?

What do you use to manage your styleguide and resources? Is there any
particular software or service you would recommend?

Thanks!
Pashmina

We just did what you are thinking. We installed Twiki (www.twiki.org)
with the concept that the style and pattern guide always evolves and
is refined through collaboration rather then individual.

We have been using wikis for quite a while now. Its excellent for this
kind of documentation. In stead of a "static" document you will get a
live and, with the right kind of contributers, flexible document.
Especially when in an agile environment. We use atlassian confluence
(http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/) as wiki, and its highly
recommended.

When in meetings I usually take notes on the wiki using a projector for
all to see, that way you don't miss anything and its easy to edit after
the meeting
