ShoutWiki is a free wiki hosting service (also known as a wiki farm) from the United Kingdom. Officially registered in England and Wales (as ShoutWiki Limited), all ShoutWiki hosted sites are powered by the MediaWiki wiki engine. ShoutWiki is known for its various different, unique MediaWiki extensions (including social tools), along with their ports of various skins (many created from WordPress skins). Many of ShoutWiki's staff members are also MediaWiki developers. See ShoutWiki's website or ShoutWiki's about page on ShoutWiki to find out more about ShoutWiki in general. ShoutWiki also has its own Gerrit group which consists of ShoutWiki staff developers.
ShoutWiki uses many extensions used by Wikimedia sites, in addition to their own custom extensions. The source code for most of these ShoutWiki custom extensions can be found at Wikimedia's git repository (the official MediaWiki git). See Category:Extensions by ShoutWiki for a list of extensions written by ShoutWiki.
