RtWiki is afor XWiki Syntax and scripts based on the Realtime Engine and the extension.
The RtWiki editor preserves the user interface of the original XWiki Wiki editor so with the RtWiki editor, you can smoothly transition from editing Wiki syntax alone to editing with other collaborators as a group.
If a document is currently being edited in Realtime, the normal "This document has been locked for editing" screen will appear but will allow you to join the Realtime Collaborative Session if applicable.
And of course if you are uncomfortable with realtime editing, you can click on the ALLOW REALTIME COLLABORATION checkbox to return to normal editing at any time and your preferences will be preserved.
