Introducing the Haddock template
As mentioned in our inaugural blog post, JSPWiki has a new template – which we call Haddock. It's been refined over the past several developer releases, and we feel it can now serve as the default, production-ready template for your JSPWiki installation. Let's take a look at some key highlights.
A new user interface
Haddock features a clean, modern look and feel which builds upon the Bootstrap framework. While our legacy default template and associated skins have served us well over the years, Haddock is a huge leap forward for JSPWiki's user interface.

The legacy template and associated skins are still available, but future user interface development will be focused on Haddock.
A new editing experience
Haddock ships with a brand-new plain editor, packed with new features. Smart typing pairs, automatic suggestions, and tab completion with snippets hugely accelerate the process of adding wiki content. Search and replace has been moved to a floating window, live content previewing is now also available in a split-screen view, and the editor interface has been streamlined to display certain commands only when actually needed. And for folks who prefer a WYSIWYG experience, Haddock ships with a new WYSIWYG editor as well.
These are only some of Haddock's new editing features, and we'll be highlighting a selection in upcoming blog posts. For now, check out everything it's capable of here:
