What technology powers bitbucket wiki

I really like the fact that Bitbucket Wiki is an Hg repository and we would really like to use this same technology for an internal wiki. We would like to know what the engine is behind this?

Hi Greg,

It's pretty simple actually - just an HG repo with a custom markdown renderer running instead of our normal source view renderer.  We use https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Markdown specifically.  There is also some custom Bitbucket view code implemented as well.

Thanks very much for your answer. I thought maybe it was one of the open source wiki engines that uses Hg as a repository, however, it sounds like it is something you guys have developed as well. 

Thanks again for your answer.
