"A free, open source wiki revisited" by Mark Gibbs, NetworkWorld

4th February 2016 at 10:53pm

Interesting article giving the perspective of someone who has been away from TiddlyWiki for a few years:

http://www.networkworld.com/article/3028098/open-source-tools/tiddlywiki-a-free-open-source-wiki-revisited.html

Way back in the mists of time (actually, January 2009) I wrote about a really cool tool called TiddlyWiki, a “non-linear personal web notebook”. Fast forward to today and I just had an out of body experience: Completely by accident I found a TiddlyWiki that I started when I wrote that piece and it still works!

Finding code that works flawlessly after just two or three years is magical enough but after seven years?! And given that TiddlyWiki is written as a single page Web application and considering how different browsers are now than they were in 2009, the fact that the old version of TiddlyWiki still works is not short of miraculous.

"A Thesis Notebook" by Alberto Molina

2nd March 2013 at 8:45am

A thesis notebook based on TiddlyWiki.

http://tesis.tiddlyspot.com/

This is an example of a thesis notebook powered by TiddlyWiki 5.0.8-beta.

TiddlyWiki is a great piece of software created by Jeremy Ruston. It allows you, among other things, to take notes, organize ideas, store information, and display all your stuff the way you want. It is an incredibly flexible tool you can adapt to fit almost all your needs.

This TiddlyWiki has been customized to serve as a philosophy notebook centered around authors, books and papers, concepts and theories, and personal notes. I use it along with Zotero, which is a dedicated bibliography software. Both are free, open source projects. TiddlyWiki can be downloaded at https://tiddlywiki.com.

"Mal's Sandbox" by Mal

6th January 2021 at 3:10pm

A collection of extensions by @malgam

http://malsandbox.tiddlyspot.com

The "loadnew" plugin provides the JavaScript module $:/plugins/malgam/loadnew/loadnew.js that implements an incremental load command for Tiddlywiki 5.

The javascript code is based on the built-in module $:/core/modules/commands/load.js that loads tiddlers from a Tiddlywiki file into a node.js Tiddlywiki instance. This command loads all non-system tiddlers, irrespective of whether they have been modified since last loaded. As a result, all tiddlers in the node.js tiddlers folder will end up with a new modification date.

In contrast, the loadnew command only loads tiddlers that either don't already exist in the tiddlers folder, or have a newer modified date than the existing tiddler.

With a backup strategy that uses a file system snapshot process to preserve historical versions of tiddlers, the loadnew command minimises the sizes of the resulting snapshots.

"Notizen mit TiddlyWiki systemübergreifend nutzen" by Michael Sonntag

10th September 2014 at 10:28am

A quick guide to using TiddlyWiki (written in German)

http://michaelsonntag.net/notizen-mit-tiddlywiki-systemuebergreifend-nutzen

Those using multiple different computer platforms (if only PC and Android) knows for certain: You would like to sync notes across computers and thereby be independent of any apps or services. I am concerned at any rate so and so I am constantly looking for the perfect solution.

With TiddlyWiki I found it mostly. As the name suggests, it TiddlyWiki is a Wikisystem. In contrast to all other wikis, TiddlyWiki is a single HTML file that runs in the browser and thus can be used on all modern operating systems. And because there is only one file, it can be very easily via the well-known cloud services (Dropbox, Google Drive, ownCloud) or synchronized with FTP or used on a USB stick.

"Setting Up a Personal TiddlyWiki Server on OS X" by Kris Johnson

3rd April 2015 at 10:42am

Detailed description of setting up TiddlyWiki on Node.js on OS X.

http://undefinedvalue.com/2015/04/02/setting-personal-tiddlywiki-server-os-x

For a new job, I decided to set up a personal wiki to keep notes. I wanted to keep it simple, meeting these requirements:

  • All the data is in a Dropbox folder (so it can be automatically synced between machines)
  • It must support Markdown syntax

After looking at the options, I settled on TiddlyWiki. I've used "classic TiddlyWiki" before, and liked its simplicity, but I was always a little annoyed with the weird steps you have to go through to save changes. The new version of TiddlyWiki includes support for running it as a real HTTP server, so you can use it just like an online wiki.

But it took me a couple of hours to figure out how to set that up. The TiddlyWiki documentation is not clear ("not clear" is a euphemistic way of saying "terrible"). So, I've written up these instructions in the hope it will spare somebody else all the frustration I had.

"Shining Ark Using TiddlyWiki" by Helu

7th September 2013 at 8:45am

A gamers guide to using TiddlyWiki.

http://helugame.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/shining-ark-7-using-tiddlywiki/

I’ve been using TiddlyWiki for this game mainly to record the monsters’ locations and the items that they drop. This is so that when I need a certain item to upgrade/create weapons, I can quickly look it up; which monsters drop it and which quests have those monsters.

As I play the game, as I encounter new information, I just input them into my Shining Ark TiddlyWiki. It’s like I’m building a wiki from scratch. The reason why I don’t just use online wikis is that 1) it’s too easy to get spoiled and 2) sometimes online wikis provide too much information (who cares about the non-gameplay related descriptions that can be found in the game, etc).

"TiddlyWiki 5 im Betatest" by besim

5th January 2014 at 8:45am

Reaction to TiddlyWiki5 from the translator of the German edition of TiddlyWikiClassic.

http://blog.netplanet.org/2014/01/03/tiddlywiki-5-im-betatest/

There is little software that can still inspire me so even after years, as on the first day. This includes TiddlyWiki, the "pocket-wiki". The latter is because the Wiki completely fits into an HTML file, and this HTML file brings everything - JavaScript program logic, CSS appearance and the entire Wiki content as stored records. So a TiddlyWiki file is then sometimes happy times some megabytes in size, but just has the unbeatable advantage that it works just as fast file created locally in a variety of browsers.

Dutch blog post about TiddlyWiki

https://breinbout.wordpress.com/2014/11/26/tiddlywiki/

I'm allergic to websites that are highly dependent on JavaScript. I think that JavaScript has many useful applications to add functionality to a site, but content needs to be visible if JavaScript is switched off. I use the NoScript extension for Firefox and surf with pleasure over the Internet without spontaneous things happen that I do not give permission. I love JavaScript on a short leash. More crazier maybe I'm so excited about TiddlyWiki.

I am a longtime user of TiddlyWiki Classic and still use it daily since you can't do everything in TiddlyWiki 5 (yet) ;)

I started experimenting with TW5 at the end of September 2013 (alpha10). Since I missed a few things in the layout I got used to in TiddlyWiki Classic 1, I started with modifying the layout of TW5. To share my knowledge, I made a few guides about these 'modifications'. The guides started as a non-linear personal web notebook (yeah, the subtitle of TiddlyWiki!). I started experimenting with layout things and used TW5 to document my experiments.

"TiddlyWiki5^2 documenting while learning TiddlyWiki5" by Iannis Zannos

6th January 2021 at 3:10pm

A wealth of hints, tips and notes about using TiddlyWiki on Node.js:

TiddlyWiki is different from other wikis because of its principle of dynamically customizeable "storyline" based on tiddlers as basic units of information. That is, the user "composes" their own version of the webpage by clicking on tiddler links, which add tiddlers to the page in order to compose a storyline.

The Node.js implementation in TiddlyWiki5 adds all the advantages of flat-file markup language based type of site. This makes TiddlyWiki an excellent alternative to flat-file based CMS/webpage/blog authoring systems for the web.

Also very cool is the treatment of tags as menus everywhere.

"TW5-TeXZilla" plugin by Joe Renes

An alternative LaTeX plugin for TiddlyWiki5. It supports a wider set of LaTeX commands than KaTeX, though not as extensive as MathJax

http://tw5-texzilla.tiddlyspot.com

This plugin provides LaTeX support in TiddlyWiki5, using the TeXZilla latex parser to generate MathML.

Only Firefox and Safari support MathML at the moment, so the plugin is only useful if you're using one of these browsers. It might be possible to combine this plugin with MathJax to convert MathML to something that other browsers can understand, e.g. HTML+CSS, but I haven't tried this.

I've known TiddlyWiki since its beginning in 2004. For personal or professional needs, I used it regularly for notepad staff in 2007 and 2012. But I admit I ignored the tool during the past two years. And then I said yesterday: but why not put TiddlyWiki on a BiblioBox? Because it is a single HTML file with javascript. In addition I knew the existence of a server version for saving online amendments.

A Gentle Guide to TiddlyWiki

19th May 2021 at 11:06am

TiddlyWiki is an incredibly flexible and versatile tool that is conceived and constructed differently than most software. This can make it hard to understand until the moment when it clicks, and becomes a seamless extension of your brain.

Starting with the basics, TiddlyWiki is a note-taking web application you can download for free, store wherever you like and customise however you wish. Use it to capture, organise and share your notes in ways that word processors and other note-taking tools cannot.

TiddlyWiki is designed to be non-linear, structuring content with stories, tags, hyperlinks, and other features. You can organise and retrieve your notes in ways that conform to your personal thought patterns, rather than feel chained to one preset organisational structure.

You can use TiddlyWiki as a single file that you view and edit through any web browser, whether you are online or offline. Or you can use it as a powerful Node.js application that stores each of your notes as a separate file.

How can you make TiddlyWiki work for you? We recommend you start with our introductory documentation listed below, and then browse the TableOfContents, available in the Contents tab in the sidebar. Or just follow our simple instructions and try it out for yourself!

TiddlyWiki wouldn't be possible without the ongoing support of the TiddlyWiki Community. Their attention and feedback has made it possible to gain an understanding of what is wanted from the product, and their passion for it has taught me that it is worth the investment.

ActionConfirmWidget

15th November 2020 at 4:03pm

Introduction

New in: 5.1.23The action-confirm widget is an action widget that prompts the user for confirmation and invokes other action widgets contained within it only if the user confirms. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-confirm widget is invisible. Any content within it is only processed if the user confirms the action, or the confirmation has been disabled by the $prompt attribute.

AttributeDescription
$messageOptional message displayed to the user when asking for confirmation.
$promptOptional flag, set to "no" to disable the prompt for confirmation. Defaults to "yes"

Examples

Here is an example of a button that asks the user for confirmation, before deleting the caption and tags fields of the current tiddler:

<$button>
<$action-confirm $message="Do you wish to delete the caption and tags?">
<$action-deletefield caption tags/>
Delete "caption" and "tags"
</$action-confirm>
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that uses the optional $prompt attribute to control whether to prompt the user before deleting the text field of the tiddler HelloThere:

<$button>
<$action-confirm $message="Do you wish to delete the text field?" $prompt={{$:/state/promptUser}}>
<$action-deletefield $tiddler="HelloThere" $field="text"/>
</$action-confirm>
Delete text from ~HelloThere
</$button>

That renders as:

ActionCreateTiddlerWidget

1st June 2021 at 9:29am

Introduction

The action-createtiddler widget is an action widget that creates new tiddlers. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

There are several differences from the tm-new-tiddler message:

  • The new tiddler is not automatically displayed in the story river
  • The title of the new tiddler is made available for subsequent operations

Content and Attributes

The action-createtiddler widget is invisible.

New in: 5.2.0 The action widgets contained within the action-createtiddler widget are executed after the new tiddler has been created with the title of the tiddler in the variable createTiddler-title and createTiddler-draftTitle.

AttributeDescription
$basetitleThe initial title that will be attempted. If a tiddler with that title already exists, then a numerical counter is added to the title and incremented until it is unique
$savetitle(deprecated – see below) A text reference identifying a field or index into which the title of the newly created tiddler will be stored after it is created
$savedrafttitle(deprecated – see below) New in: 5.1.20 A text reference identifying a field or index into which the draft title associated with the newly created tiddler will be stored after it is created. This is useful when using a sequence of action widgets to create a new tiddler, put it into edit mode, and position it within the list of its parent tag
$timestampSpecifies whether the timestamp(s) of the target tiddler will be updated (modified and modifier, plus created and creator for newly created tiddlers). Can be "yes" (the default) or "no"
$template New in: 5.1.22 The title of a template tiddler, that will be used to create a new tiddler
$overwrite New in: 5.1.22 If set to "yes", it will overwrite existing tiddlers. Be careful!
{any attributes not starting with $}Each attribute name specifies a field to be created in the new tiddler

New in: 5.2.0 Note that the attributes $savetitle and $savedrafttitle are no longer needed. Instead, any action widgets that need to use the title of the newly created tiddler should be contained within the action-createtiddler widget, and reference the variables createTiddler-title and createTiddler-draftTitle to obtain the title.

Examples

Caption for new button: <$edit-text tiddler="$:/state/new-button-caption" tag="input" default=""/>

<$button>
<$action-createtiddler $basetitle="Homemade Button" tags="$:/tags/PageControls" text={{$:/state/new-button-caption}}>
<$action-navigate $to=<<createTiddler-title>>/>
</$action-createtiddler>
Create a new non-functional page control button and open the tiddler
</$button>

That renders as:

Caption for new button:


This example will create "New Tiddler", "New Tiddler 1", " New Tiddler 2" and so on

ActionDeleteFieldWidget

20th February 2015 at 4:20pm

Introduction

The action-deletefield widget is an action widget that deletes specified fields of a tiddler. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-deletefield widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$tiddlerThe title of the tiddler whose fields are to be modified (if not provided defaults to the current tiddler)
$fieldOptional name of a field to delete
{any attributes not starting with $}Each attribute name specifies a field to be deleted. The attribute value is ignored and need not be specified

Examples

Here is an example of a button that deletes the caption and tags fields of the current tiddler:

<$button>
<$action-deletefield caption tags/>
Delete "caption" and "tags"
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that deletes the modified date and tags fields of the tiddler HelloThere:

<$button>
<$action-deletefield $tiddler="HelloThere" modified tags/>
Delete "modified" and "tags" from ~HelloThere
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that uses the optional $field attribute to delete the text field of the tiddler HelloThere:

Delete text from ~HelloThere
</$button>

That renders as:

ActionDeleteTiddlerWidget

6th November 2014 at 5:34pm

Introduction

The action-deletetiddler widget is an action widget that deletes tiddlers. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

There are several differences compared to the WidgetMessage: tm-delete-tiddler:

  • The user is not prompted to confirm the deletion
  • No automatic updating of the story list
  • No special handling of draft tiddlers

Content and Attributes

The action-deletetiddler widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$tiddlerOptional title of the tiddler to be deleted
$filterOptional filter identifying tiddlers to be deleted

Examples

Here is an example of a button that deletes the tiddler HelloThere:

<$button>
<$action-deletetiddler $tiddler="HelloThere"/>
Delete "~HelloThere"
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that deletes all tiddlers tagged TableOfContents:

<$button>
<$action-deletetiddler $filter="[tag[TableOfContents]]"/>
Delete tiddlers tagged "~TableOfContents"
</$button>

That renders as:

ActionListopsWidget

28th December 2015 at 8:33am

Introduction

The action-listops widget is an action widget that manipulates user lists in any field or data index. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-listops widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$tiddlerThe title of the tiddler whose lists are to be modified (if not provided defaults to the current tiddler
$fieldThe name of a field to be manipulated as a list (defaults to 'list')
$indexOptional index of a property in a data tiddler index to be manipulated as a list
$filterAn optional filter expression, the output of which will be saved to the field/index being manipulated
$subfilterAn optional subfilter expression, which takes the list being manipulated as input, and saves the modified list back to the field/index being manipulated
$tagsAn optional subfilter expression, which takes the 'tags' field of the target tiddler as input, and saves the modified list of tags back to the 'tags' field

$filter vs. $subfilter

Standalone use of the $subfilter attribute can be replaced by using a (more complicated) $filter attribute value.

For example, the items "abc" and "123" can be appended to the field myfield using the $subfilter attribute:

<$action-listops $field="myfield" $subfilter="abc 123"/>

The same can be achieved using the $filter attribute and prepending the Filter Run [all[current]get[myfield]enlist-input[]] to the Filter Expression:

<$action-listops $field="myfield" $filter="[all[current]get[myfield]enlist-input[]] abc 123"/>

The short form is more convenient, but the long form is useful for live-debugging complicated $subfilter values using the filter tab of $:/AdvancedSearch. By using $:/AdvancedSearch, the Filter Expression can be tested before using action-listops to modify actual tiddler fields. For this use case, the all[current] portion of the expression needs to be changed to select the proper test tiddler.

$tags vs. $field + $subfilter

Tagging is implemented using a tiddler's 'tags' field, so appending the tags "abc" and "123" using the $tags attribute like this:

<$action-listops $tags="abc 123"/>

is mostly equivalent to using $subfilter along with "tags" for the value of $field:

<$action-listops $field="tags" $subfilter="abc 123"/>

$action-listops widget vs. $action-setfield widget

The ActionSetFieldWidget replaces a field's value using $field/$value attributes. A single ActionSetFieldWidget can be used to set any number of fields by using attributes not starting with $.

The ActionListopsWidget replaces or modifies a single field's value. The new value is generated using filters.

The following two examples are functionally equivalent:

<$action-setfield $field="myfield" $value="abc 123"/>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $filter="abc 123"/>

In general, ActionSetFieldWidget is better for setting multiple fields at once and for replacing a field's value. The ActionListopsWidget is better for modifying a field based on the field's existing value and for using a Filter Expression to derive the value.

Extended Filter Operators

A number of extended filter operators are necessary for the manipulation of lists. These operators have been designed primarily for use in subfilter expressions whereby the modified current list is returned in place of the current list.

Listops Operators
Operator Purpose
allafter discard all items except those after the marker
allbefore discard all items except those before the marker
append append a range of items from an array to the list
cycle toggle in the input, the titles specified in the first operand in a cyclical manner
insertbefore insert an item T into a list immediately before an item B
move move marker N places in the list
prepend prepend a range of items from an array to the list
putafter move N trailing items after the marker
putbefore move N trailing items before the marker
putfirst move N trailing items to the head of the list
putlast move N leading items to the tail of the list
remove remove a list of titles specified in the operand from the input
replace replace marker with N trailing items
sortby sort the current list in the order of the list referenced in the operand
toggle toggle the title specified in the operand in the input
unique remove all duplicate items from the current list

Examples

In this example we shall populate and then clear a list in an ordinary field (myfield) of this tiddler (the default.)

<$button>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $subfilter="efg hlm pqr"/>
Populate 'myfield'
</$button>
<$button>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $subfilter="abc xyz"/>
Append More Items
</$button>
<$button>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $subfilter="-abc -hlm"/>
Remove Items
</$button>
<$button>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $filter="[[]]"/>
Clear 'myfield'
</$button>

<$list filter="[list[!!myfield]]">

</$list>

That renders as:


In this example we shall append and remove items from a list in an ordinary field (myfield) of this tiddler (the default) and sort the resultant list. We shall then remove some of the appended items and sort the resulting list in reverse order.

<$button>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $subfilter="-efg ijk xyz [[this is a title]] +[sort[]]"/>
Mangle List
</$button>
<$button>
<$action-listops $field="myfield" $subfilter="-xyz -[[this is a title]] +[!sort[]]"/>
Unmangle List
</$button>

<$list filter="[list[!!myfield]]">

</$list>

That renders as:


In this example we shall append a few tags to the 'tags' field of this tiddler (the default.) We shall then remove some of the appended tags.

<$button>
<$action-listops $tags="+[append{Days of the Week!!short}] $:/tag1 $:/tag2 $:/tag3"/>
Populate 'tags'
</$button>
<$button>
<$action-listops $tags="+[!remove:2{!!tags}]"/>
Remove Last Two Tags
</$button>
<$button>
<$action-listops $tags="+[!prefix[$:/]]"/>

ActionLogWidget

20th November 2020 at 3:52pm

Introduction

New in: 5.1.23 The action-log widget is an action widget that can be used to output debugging information to the JavaScript console supported by most browsers. This can be useful because otherwise it is difficult to observe what is going on within a sequence of actions.

ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

For debugging outside of actions see LogWidget

Content and Attributes

The action-log widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

When the actions are invoked, the names and values of all attributes are logged to the JavaScript console. In addition there are optional attributes that can be used:

Optional AttributeDescription
$$filterAll variables matching this filter will also be logged.
$$messageA message to display as the title of the information logged. Useful when several action-log widgets are used in sequence.
$$allSet to "yes" to log all variables in a collapsed table. Note that if there is nothing specified to log, all variables are always logged instead.

A handy tip if an action widget is not behaving as expected is to temporarily change it to an <$action-log> widget so that the attributes can be observed.

Example

Here is an example of logging two variables:

<$action-log myVar=<<myVar>> otherVar=<<otherVar>>/>

To log all variables:

<$action-log />

To log two variables as well as all core variables (which start with tv-):

<$action-log myVar=<<myVar>> other={{!!status}} $$filter="[prefix[tv-]]"/>

ActionNavigateWidget

20th February 2015 at 4:20pm

Introduction

The action-navigate widget is an action widget that sends a tm-navigate message back up the widget tree. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-navigate widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$toThe title of the target tiddler for the navigation (if not provided defaults to the current tiddler
$scrollOptional parameter determining whether the navigation will also cause a scroll to the target tiddler (see below)

Scroll handling

The optional $scroll attribute can be set to "yes" to force scrolling to occur to bring the target tiddler into view. If set to "no" then scrolling does not occur. If the $scroll attribute is omitted then scrolling occurs unless either:

  • the control key is pressed
  • the action was initiated with the middle mouse button (if available)

Note that if navigating to multiple tiddlers at once you should use the same $scroll setting for all of them.

Examples

Here is an example of button that navigates to two different tiddlers at once:

<$button>
<$action-navigate $to="ButtonWidget"/>
<$action-navigate $to="ActionWidgets"/>
Click me!
</$button>

That renders as:

ActionPopupWidget

1st May 2021 at 8:34pm

Introduction

The action-popup widget is an action widget that triggers the display of a popup defined via a state tiddler, or clears all displayed popups. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-popup widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$stateThe title of the state tiddler for the popup
$coordsOptional coordinates for the handle to which popup is positioned (in the format (x,y,w,h))
$floating New in: 5.2.0 Optional. Defaults to no. Set to yes to create a popup that must be closed explicitly.

New in: 5.1.23 If the $coords attribute is missing or empty then all popups are cancelled.

Delete the state tiddler for a floating popup to close it.

Examples

Here is an example of button that triggers the "more" button in the sidebar "Tools" tab. You may need to scroll to see the popup

<$button>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="$:/state/tab/sidebar--595412856" $value="$:/core/ui/SideBar/Tools"/>
<$action-popup $state="$:/state/popup/more-2053862905" $coords="(0,20,0,0)"/>
Click me!
</$button>

That renders as:

ActionSendMessageWidget

18th May 2015 at 9:09pm

Introduction

The action-sendmessage widget is an action widget that sends a message back up the widget tree. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-sendmessage widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$messageThe message to send (eg, WidgetMessage: tm-new-tiddler)
$paramOptional parameter string whose meaning is dependent on the message being sent
$nameOptional name of additional parameter
$valueValue for optional parameter whose name is specified in $name
{any attributes not starting with $}Multiple additional, optional named parameters that are attached to the message

Examples

Here is an example of button that displays both a notification and a wizard, and creates a new tiddler with tags and text:

<$button>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-modal" $param="SampleWizard"/>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-notify" $param="SampleNotification"/>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-new-tiddler" title="This is newly created tiddler" tags="OneTag [[Another Tag]]" text=<<now "Today is DDth, MMM YYYY">>/>
Click me!
</$button>

That renders as:

ActionSetFieldWidget

6th August 2015 at 5:14pm

Introduction

The action-setfield widget is an action widget that assigns values to the fields of a tiddler. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-setfield widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

AttributeDescription
$tiddlerThe title of the tiddler whose fields are to be modified (if not provided defaults to the current tiddler)
$fieldOptional name of a field to be assigned the $value attribute
$indexOptional index of a property in a data tiddler to be assigned the $value attribute
$valueThe value to be assigned to the field or index identified by the $field or $index attribute. If neither is specified then the value is assigned to the text field. If no value is specified, $field or $index will be deleted.
$timestampSpecifies whether the timestamp(s) of the target tiddler will be updated (modified and modifier, plus created and creator for newly created tiddlers). Can be "yes" (the default) or "no"
{any attributes not starting with $}Each attribute name specifies a field to be modified with the attribute value providing the value to assign to the field

Examples

Here is an example of a pair of buttons that open the control panel directly to specified tabs. They work by using action-setfield to set the state tiddler for the control panel tabs.

<$button>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="$:/state/tab-1749438307" text="$:/core/ui/ControlPanel/Appearance"/>
<$action-navigate $to="$:/ControlPanel"/>
Go to Control Panel "Appearance" tab
</$button>

<$button>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="$:/state/tab-1749438307" text="$:/core/ui/ControlPanel/Settings"/>
<$action-navigate $to="$:/ControlPanel"/>
Go to Control Panel "Settings" tab
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that assigns tags and fields to the tiddler HelloThere, and then navigates to it and opens the tiddler info panel on the "Fields" tab:

<$button>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="HelloThere" tags="NewTag [[Another New Tag]]" color="red"/>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="$:/state/popup/tiddler-info--1779055697" text="(568,1443,33,39)"/>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="$:/state/tab--1890574033" text="$:/core/ui/TiddlerInfo/Fields"/>
<$action-navigate $to="HelloThere"/>
Modify ~HelloThere
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that assigns tags and fields to the tiddler HelloThere, and then initiates editing it:

<$button>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="HelloThere" tags="MoreTag [[Further More Tags]]" color="green"/>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-edit-tiddler" $param="HelloThere"/>
Edit ~HelloThere
</$button>

That renders as:

Here is an example of a button that opens the control panel directly to the "Appearance" tabs:

<$action-navigate $to="$:/ControlPanel"/>
Go to Control Panel "Appearance" tab
</$button>

That renders as:

actionTiddler Variable

18th January 2019 at 8:46am

The variable actionTiddler is used in subtly different ways by different widgets:

  • Within the actions string of the DroppableWidget, the actionTiddler variable contains the title of the tiddler being dropped.
  • Within the startactions and endactions string of the DroppableWidget, the actionTiddler variable contains a quoted Title List of all of the titles being dragged.

ActionWidget Execution Modes

New in: 5.2.0 The default behaviour of action widgets has some peculiarities that often cause confusion. There is now an improved mode that simplifies how things work, but due to BackwardsCompatibility constraints, it must be explicitly engaged in order to take advantage of it.

The peculiarities relate to the way that the results of previous action widgets are available to subsequent action widgets. By default, action widgets are refreshed before each execution which ensure that they reflect the results of previous actions. However, ordinary widgets are not updated in the same way.

In the following contrived example, a button triggers a series of actions that should result in the string foo being assigned to the text field of the tiddler ActionTestTiddler. However, it fails to produce the expected result because the <$set> widget is not refreshed with the new value of ActionTestTiddler after the execution of the first <$action-setfield> widget.

\define actions()
<$action-setfield $tiddler="ActionTestTiddler" $field="text" $value="FOO"/>
<$set name="newvalue" value={{{ [{ActionTestTiddler}lowercase[]] }}}>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="ActionTestTiddler" $field="text" $value=<<newvalue>>/>
</$set>
\end

Current value of ActionTestTiddler: {{ActionTestTiddler}}

<$button actions=<<actions>>>
Click me
</$button>

That renders as:

Current value of ActionTestTiddler:

The new behaviour avoids these problems by refreshing all widgets before execution, not just action widgets. It is engaged by running the actions in a scopr that includes the variable tv-action-refresh-policy set to the value always.

This can be done within an action string, or via a local variable declaration containing the widget triggering the action.

Do not attempt to set tv-action-refresh-policy globally; the core will only work correctly with the default setting

The example above works as expected with the addition of tv-action-refresh-policy:

\define tv-action-refresh-policy() always

\define actions()
<$action-setfield $tiddler="ActionTestTiddler" $field="text" $value="FOO"/>
<$set name="newvalue" value={{{ [{ActionTestTiddler}lowercase[]] }}}>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="ActionTestTiddler" $field="text" $value=<<newvalue>>/>
</$set>
\end

Current value of ActionTestTiddler: {{ActionTestTiddler}}

<$button actions=<<actions>>>
Click me
</$button>

That renders as:

Current value of ActionTestTiddler:

ActionWidgets

30th June 2021 at 4:31pm

Action widgets are a special type of widget that have no visual appearance but perform an action when triggered (such as sending a message, navigating to a tiddler, or changing the value of a tiddler). Action widgets are used in association with other widgets that trigger those actions (for example, the ButtonWidget).

The following action widgets are provided:

There are two ways to use action widgets:

  • Placing them within an action string attribute (typically called actions) on the triggering widget (this is the preferred way)
  • Embedding the actions within the triggering widget (an older technique that is now deprecated)

Using action string attributes

The action widgets are passed as a string to the actions attribute of the triggering widget. Usually, it is more convenient to use a macro to assign the action widgets to a variable. For example, here is a button that triggers two actions of sending different messages:

\define my-actions()
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-home"/>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-full-screen"/>
\end

<$button actions=<<my-actions>>>
Click me!
</$button>

Directly embedding action widgets

The action widgets need not be immediate children of their triggering widget, but they must be descendents of it. The actions are performed in sequence. Here is the above example rewritten to use embedding:

<$button>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-home"/>
<$action-sendmessage $message="tm-full-screen"/>
Click me!
</$button>

Action Execution Modes

New in: 5.2.0 The default behaviour of action widgets has some peculiarities that often cause confusion. There is now an improved mode that simplifies how things work, but due to BackwardsCompatibility constraints, it must be explicitly engaged in order to take advantage of it.

However, it fails to produce the expected result because the <$set> widget is not refreshed with the new value of ActionTestTiddler after the execution of the first <$action-setfield> widget.

\define actions()
<$action-setfield $tiddler="ActionTestTiddler" $field="text" $value="FOO"/>
<$set name="newvalue" value={{{ [{ActionTestTiddler}lowercase[]] }}}>
<$action-setfield $tiddler="ActionTestTiddler" $field="text" $value=<<newvalue>>/>
</$set>
\end

Current value of ActionTestTiddler: {{ActionTestTiddler}}

Adding a table of contents to the sidebar

6th November 2018 at 10:41pm

The standard mechanisms in TiddlyWiki for creating Table-of-Contents are macros known collectively as "toc" macros (click on link to learn more about macros). They use Tagging as their means of creating relationships, so be sure to review the Tagging topic tiddler if tagging is a new concept for you.

A customisable table of contents can be added to the sidebar with the following steps:

  1. Create a tiddler called TableOfContents
  2. Give it the tag $:/tags/SideBar
  3. Set the text to
    
    <div class="tc-table-of-contents">
    
    <<toc-selective-expandable 'TableOfContents'>>
    
    </div>
  4. Add a caption field with the text Contents
  5. Add a list-after field with the text $:/core/ui/SideBar/Open

Add entries to the table of contents by creating tiddlers tagged TableOfContents. An easy way is to choose new here from the tiddler toolbar of the TableOfContents tiddler. (if you don't see the "new here" button, click on the down arrow to see more menu options.)

To create child tiddlers (tiddlers that come below other tiddlers), tag them with the name of the parent tiddler.

Adding a Twitter Follow button

19th September 2014 at 4:15pm

Here's a macro that provides a Twitter Follow button for a particular username:

\define twitterFollowButton(username)
<iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets/follow_button.html?screen_name=$username$" style="width:300px; height:20px;"></iframe>
\end

The only change from the version published at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/follow-button is that new lines have been removed.

Note that the src URL is given without a protocol (ie "http" or "https"). It's done this way so that it works on sites whether they are hosted on a HTTP or HTTPS domain. If you want the Twitter button to work while using a TiddlyWiki offline on a "file://" URL, then you'll need to manually add the protocol. For example:

<iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets/follow_button.html?screen_name=jermolene" style="width:300px; height:20px;"></iframe>

Adopt a Titles Policy

12th September 2014 at 3:01pm

As the structures within your TiddlyWiki documents get more complex it can be hard to keep the titles of tiddlers consistent. For example, should terms be defined in the plural or the singular? Camel case or separate words?

Recording a formal titling policy can help to reduce confusion. For example, the titling policies for this wiki are recorded in the Documentation Style Guide.

SystemTiddler Titles

A useful convention is to use the prefix $:/_ for any system tiddlers that you create to ensure that they are near the top of the system tiddler listing in the sidebar

AlertMechanism

6th June 2016 at 12:59pm

Alerts are displayed as yellow boxes overlaying the main TiddlyWiki window. Each one corresponds to a tiddler with the tag $:/tags/Alert. Clicking the delete icon on an alert deletes the corresponding tiddler.

Here's a demo .

Alert tiddlers should have the following fields:

FieldDescription
titleBy default, alert titles have the prefix $:/temp/alerts/
textThe text of the alert message
modifiedDate of the alert (used for ordering the alerts on screen)
componentComponent name associated with the alert
tagsMust include $:/tags/Alert

28th November 2016 at 6:54pm
purposefind all titles of a fundamental category

parameterzero or more categories
outputthe titles that belong to all the specified categories

The parameter specifies zero or more fundamental categories using the following syntax:

missingcurrentorphansshadowstagstiddlers+
CategoryMembersSorted
currentjust the current tiddler
missingall non-existent tiddlers to which there is at least one hard linkno
orphansall tiddlers to which there are no hard linksby title
shadowsall the shadow tiddlers that exist, including any that have been overridden with non-shadow tiddlersno
tagsall the tags in use on non-shadow tiddlersno
tiddlersall the non-shadow tiddlers that existno

If the parameter specifies more than one category, they are processed from left to right. The overall output is initially empty, and each category's output is dominantly appended to it in turn. Unrecognised categories contribute nothing to the output.

As a special case, if the parameter is empty, the output is simply a copy of the input. This can be useful when the parameter is soft.

The is operator is similar, but its scope is restricted to its input.

AlphaReleases

1st July 2014 at 8:16pm

Here are the details of the alpha releases of TiddlyWiki5. See TiddlyWiki5 Versioning for details of how releases are named.

Release 5.0.1-alpha

Released 6th December 2013 at 17:53

See GitHub for detailed change history of this release

Improvements

  • Changes to the importing process to enable a smoother Upgrading process
    • Ignores attempts to import plugins that are older than currently installed plugins
    • System tiddlers are now imported as usual
  • If $:/theme isn't defined or refers to a missing tiddler, then fallback through Snow White to Vanilla. This means that empty.html now defaults to Snow White
  • Added support for Block Quotes in WikiText

Bug fixes

  • Fixed bug that was preventing $:/tags/PageControls tiddlers from being reordered

Internal changes

Alternative page layouts

23rd November 2020 at 7:28pm

New in: 5.1.23 You can have multiple alternative page layouts and switch between them. To see a list of available layouts and switch between them, use the keyboard shortcut ctrl-shift-L.

Creating an alternative page layout

Creating an alternative layout goes beyond adding or removing features from the default interface and allows you to create an entirely new layout from scratch.

To create an alternative page layout and have the ability to switch to it, you need to create an alternative page template tiddler with the SystemTag: $:/tags/Layout.

This alternative page template can either be a tweaked and modified version of the default page template, or something entirely different. The layout switching mechanism requires that your page template tiddler has the fields name and description, which are used in the listing in the switching user interface.

Amazon Web Services Plugin

3rd July 2017 at 7:33pm

The Amazon Web Services Plugin provides several tools for working with Amazon Web Services:

  • Templates for saving a TiddlyWiki as a single JavaScript file in a ZIP file that can be executed as an AWS Lambda function. In this form, TiddlyWiki is a self contained single file containing both code and data, just like the standalone HTML file configuration
  • Commands that can be used to interact with AWS services, under both the Node.js and Lambda configurations of TiddlyWiki

Anchor Links using HTML

30th November 2020 at 6:43am

What do they do?

In TiddlyWiki anchor links can help us link to target points and distinct sections within rendered tiddlers. They can help the reader navigate longer tiddler content.

For example this link, Bottom, should take you to the bottom of this tiddler. The "Back to the top" link below should return you back to the top of this tiddler.

Back to the top

How do I make them?

There are only 2 steps to making anchor links.

  • First, create the target point (called an 'anchor') where you want it.
  • Second, add a link to it where the reader might need it.

That's it.

Step 1: Create an 'anchor' (link target)

<a id="#Bottom_of_tiddler"></a>

Step 2: Create a link to the target anchor

<a href="##Bottom_of_tiddler">Bottom</a>
  • Create an <a href> link using exactly the same 'address' value as the target but with double ## characters preceding it.
  • Place this code where it will most help the reader.

The above example can be adapted to work for many situations in TiddlyWiki, such as the table of contents at the top of this tiddler.

Is it really that simple?

Yes, it's that simple. BUT... in TiddlyWiki there are some small differences from standard HTML5 anchor links and some specific TiddlyWiki limitations.

Back to the top

Step 1: Creating the target anchor

  • Unlike standard HTML5, in TiddlyWiki you must put a single # character in front of the target address value that follows the id attribute. (Notice the single # character used in the #Bottom_of_tiddler in Example 1.)
  • Unlike standard HTML5, TiddlyWiki anchor links are case sensitive. In the example above #Bottom_of_tiddler works, but #bottom_of_Tiddler wouldn't.
  • Avoid using the % character in your link, as some browsers have a bug where navigation to anchors containing a % character can sometimes fail (see warning below).
  • Avoid using any whitespace in your link (see note 1 below).
  • Each link address should be unique in the TiddlyWiki. If transclusions create multiple instances of the same id attribute, navigation will take place to the first instance found that satisfies the above criteria. To avoid this, you can use the qualify macro in both the id and the href attributes in a similar style to the example given below: Avoiding duplicate IDs when transcluding.

Step 2: Creating the link to the target

  • Remember that the href value should start with two # characters, one more than the id value of the target anchor.
  • Remember that TiddlyWiki anchor links are case sensitive

Step 3: Navigating to the target

Normally you can click on the link and TiddlyWiki will scroll the window so the target anchor is at the top of the window, but there are several limitations:

  • Anchor links in TiddlyWiki do not work if the tiddler is not in the Story River, or is not displayed in the sidebar.
  • Anchor links in TiddlyWiki do not work if the tidlder is in the Story River or sidebar but anchor marked target point is not visible on the page (e.g., the tiddler is folded or the anchor is within a non-displaying $reveal widget). Ctrl+Click on such an anchor link will open a new browser window/tab loading the base web page and will not navigate to the expected tiddler.
  • Anchor links in Tiddlywiki do not work if Control Panel > Appearance > Story View is set to Zoomin (the single page view) and the tiddler is not at the top of the story river (i.e. not displayed).
  • When an anchor link is clicked the browser's navigation history will be updated with the link's href value appended to the web page's URL. This will happen even if the Control Panel > Settings > Navigation History value is set to "Do not update history".
Note
1. The HTML5 specification for the id attribute says that its value should not contain any whitespace. Currently (Dec 2020) an id value with whitespace can sometimes work. However, it may not work in all browsers and is not guaranteed to work in the future.

Some browsers may fail to navigate to an anchor target whose id value includes a % character followed by 2 digits. This is a bug in the browser and nothing that TiddlyWiki can fix. To be safe, avoid using the % character.

Back to the top

More examples

In each case the target code is placed at the destination the reader navigates to, the link code is placed where it will help the reader navigate from.

<h2 id="#heading-01"> My Target Heading</h2>

<a href="##heading-01">Link to My Target Heading</a>

This looks like:


My Target Heading

Link to My Target Heading


<section id="#unique001">

!! My Target section

A `<section>` HTML tag is generally used to define sections in an HTML document, such as chapters, headers, footers, or any other sections of the document.
</section>

Clicking this anchor link goes to: <a href="##unique001">Link to My Target Section</a>

This looks like:


My Target section

A <section> HTML tag is generally used to define sections in an HTML document, such as chapters, headers, footers, or any other sections of the document.

Clicking this anchor link goes to: Link to My Target Section


Back to the top

Suggestions for HTML elements to use

Some suggestions for the HTML element you choose for marking a position using the id attribute:

Element Sample code Observations
anchor<a id="#part001-of-TiddlerName"></a>Should work perfectly everywhere
heading<h2 id="#a-new-heading">A New Heading</h2>Headings can have id attributes as well
section<section id="#sect001-of-TiddlerName">This is a new section</section>If you use the section element it should probably have an id of its own
span<span id="#007">Marker 007 is here!</span>span elements can be used to insert an id mid-paragraph

Back to the top

Suggestions for target names to use

Sample code Observations
Recommended<a id="#part001-of-TiddlerName"></a>Include the tiddler name for easy unique ids
Avoid: whitespace<h2 id="#0 0 1">A New Heading</h2>Whitespace is not guaranteed to work in all browsers
Avoid: %<section id="#sect001%20of%20TiddlerName">This is a new section</section>URI encoding (turning space into %20 and so on) may not work in some browsers
Avoid: duplicate IDs<span id="#007">Marker 007 is here!</span>id values should be unique within entire wiki
Avoid: duplicate IDs<a id="#007"></a>A different marker 007If id values are duplicated, one will be ignored

Back to the top

Avoiding duplicate IDs when transcluding

The id and anchor link to this header has been made as follows:

<a href=<<qualify "##qualify-example">>>Avoiding duplicate IDs when transcluding</a>

<h2 id=<<qualify "#qualify-example">>>Avoiding duplicate IDs when transcluding</h2>
For this to work:
  • The href and id values use the macro invocation syntax for attributes, using the qualify Macro to create a unique id value.
  • Both the id and the anchor link must be in the same tiddler.
  • There must not be any quote characters between the = and the <<.
  • The double quotes around the target name are optional, but recommended.
  • There should be a total of three > characters after the target name, two >> to close the <<qualify macro, and one > to close the <a tag.

Back to the top

Style Hints

If you don't want the link to look like an external link, give the <a> element's class attribute the value tc-tiddlylink and if you want the link to also be italic & bold, give the additional classes tc-tiddlylink-missing tc-tiddlylink-shadow like below:

<a class="tc-tiddlylink" href="##Introduction:Anchor-Links-using-HTML">Back to the top</a> or just back to <a class="tc-tiddlylink tc-tiddlylink-missing tc-tiddlylink-shadow" href=<<qualify ##Hints>>>Hints</a>.

Back to the top or just back to Style Hints.

If you want to include an id attribute to a link in your sidebar Table of Contents, you can include it in your listed tiddler's caption field similar to the way shown below:

<span id=#some-value>Your caption</span>

Audio

19th October 2014 at 8:06pm

Audio files can be incorporated into TiddlyWiki in a very similar way to images.

Embedded Audio

Small audio files can be embedded directly within TiddlyWiki. Embedding isn't suitable for large files (over a few hundred kilobytes) because it increases the size of the TiddlyWiki file.

For example, the tiddler TiddlyWiki.mp3 contains an MP3 recording of the word "TiddlyWiki". If you visit that tiddler, you should see an audio player that will play back the recording.

You can also transclude audio files. For example:

{{TiddlyWiki.mp3}}

That renders as:

External Audio

External audio tiddlers use the _canonical_uri field to point to an external audio file/stream, and have their text field blocked. This reduces their size considerably, but still allows for playback.

For example, the tiddler Caruso - Ave Maria points to an online audio recording hosted on http://archive.org:

{{Caruso - Ave Maria}}

That renders as:

AutoSave

10th June 2016 at 8:15am

If there is a SaverModule available that supports it, TiddlyWiki will automatically trigger a save of the current document on clicking ok or delete when editing a tiddler.

You should see a yellow notification at the top right of the window to confirm that an automatic save has taken place.

Automatic saving can be enabled or disabled through the Settings tab of the control panel . Behind the scenes, it is controlled through the configuration tiddler $:/config/AutoSave, which must have the value yes to enable automatic saving.

Beaker Browser

13th November 2017 at 11:02am

From Beaker Browser website:

Beaker is a Peer-to-Peer Web Browser, made for users to run applications independently of hosts. Using P2P Hypermedia, Beaker separates frontend apps from backend services, so that users are completely in control of their software and data. Read more.

Beaker is a fork of the open source Chromium browser (which is the core engine powering Google's Chrome browser).

Beaker adds the ability to host sites within the browser, and browse to those sites via the dat:// protocol. The extraordinary thing is that if you are running Beaker then you can also browse to sites hosted by other users, without needing any server in between.

Further, you can opt to host a site belonging to somebody else, forming part of a Bittorrent-like swarm of peers serving the content to other browsers. You can also fork a site, making your own copy that you can change as you need.

The main disadvantage is that mainstream browsers cannot use dat:// sites.

Most of the magic is accomplished by the underlying Dat protocol.

New in: 5.1.14 TiddlyWiki incorporates a special saver module permitting changes to be saved directly from Beaker browser. See Saving on Beaker Browser for instructions.

Block Quotes in WikiText

17th April 2017 at 4:51pm

There are two ways to produce HTML block quotes in TiddlyWiki5, one for content spread across multiple lines, and one for single line content.

Multi-line Block Quotes

The syntax for multi-line block quotes () is:

<<<
This is a block quoted paragraph
written in English
<<<

That renders as:

This is a block quoted paragraph written in English

... and the underlying HTML is:

<blockquote class="tc-quote"><p>This is a block quoted paragraph
written in English
</p></blockquote>

Citation

A citation can be added to the quote like this:

<<<
Computers are like a bicycle for our minds
<<< Steve Jobs

That renders as:

Computers are like a bicycle for our minds

Steve Jobs

... and the underlying HTML is:

<blockquote class="tc-quote"><p>Computers are like a bicycle for our minds
</p><cite>Steve Jobs</cite></blockquote>

CSS Classes

CSS classes can be added to a block quote:

<<<.myClass.another-class
Operating systems are like a brick wall for our minds
<<< Nobody

That renders as:

Operating systems are like a brick wall for our minds

Nobody

... and the underlying HTML is:

<blockquote class="tc-quote myClass another-class"><p>Operating systems are like a brick wall for our minds
</p><cite>Nobody</cite></blockquote>

The core includes the class tc-big-quote that renders block quotes with outsize double quotes:

<<<.tc-big-quote
A dramatic quote
<<< Somebody Important

That renders as:

A dramatic quote

Somebody Important

... and the underlying HTML is:

<blockquote class="tc-quote tc-big-quote"><p>A dramatic quote
</p><cite>Somebody Important</cite></blockquote>

Single-line Block Quotes

The single-line syntax for block quotes is actually an extension of the syntax for Lists in WikiText. For example:

> Quoted text
> Another line of quoted text

That renders as:

Quoted text
Another line of quoted text

... and the underlying HTML is:

<blockquote><div>Quoted text</div><div>Another line of quoted text</div></blockquote>

You can also nest quotes like this:

> A top quote
>> A subquote
> Another top quote

Which renders as:

A top quote
A subquote
Another top quote

You can also mix block quotes with other list items. For example:

* List One
** List Two
**> A quote
**> Another quote
* List Three

That renders as:

  • List One
    • List Two
      A quote
      Another quote
  • List Three

... and the underlying HTML is:

<ul><li>List One<ul><li>List Two<blockquote><div>A quote</div><div>Another quote</div></blockquote></li></ul></li><li>List Three</li></ul>

Blog Edition

2nd September 2015 at 12:32pm

BrowserStorage Plugin

6th February 2019 at 6:12pm

The BrowserStorage Plugin enables TiddlyWiki to save tiddlers in browser local storage. This means that changes are stored within the browser, and automatically re-applied any time the base wiki is reloaded.

Browser local storage is not a panacea for TiddlyWiki:

  • Browsers limit the amount of local storage available to a page, typically to 5 or 10MB
  • Keeping personal data in browser local storage can lead to unexpected privacy violations
  • Browsers reserve the right to without warning delete data stored in local storage at any time
  • Browsers tie local storage to a URL which can lead to problems if you move a wiki to a URL previously occupied by a different wiki

Please use this plugin with caution. There are a number of unresolved issues and open questions.

The BrowserStorage Plugin can be installed from the plugin library.

BrowseWidget

21st April 2020 at 10:13pm

Introduction

The browse widget displays an HTML file browser button that allows the user to choose one or more files to import. It sends a WidgetMessage: tm-import-tiddlers carrying a JSON representation of the tiddlers imported from the files up through its parents. This message is usually handled by the NavigatorWidget which adds the tiddlers to the store and updates the story to display them.

Content and Attributes

The content of the <$browse> widget is ignored.

AttributeDescription
multipleSet to "multiple" to select multiple file upload
deserializer New in: 5.1.15 Optional name of deserializer to be used (by default the deserializer is derived from the file extension or type)
tooltipOptional tooltip text
accept New in: 5.1.23 Optional comma delimited list of file accepted extensions and/or MIME types
messageOptional override of widget message to be generated. The files will be passed in the JavaScript object event.target.files
paramOptional parameter to be passed with the custom message

On iPhone/iPad choosing the multiple option will remove the ability to take photographs/videos directly into TiddlyWiki.

e.g.

<$browse>

1st November 2013 at 9:11am

BT (née British Telecom) is the UK's largest telecommunications company. In 2007, Osmosoft was acquired by BT. JeremyRuston subsequently left BT in 2011.

BuildCommand

27th April 2014 at 9:04pm

Build the specified build targets for the current wiki. If no build targets are specified then all available targets will be built.

--build <target> [<target> ...]

Build targets are defined in the tiddlywiki.info file of a wiki folder.

See tiddlywiki.info Files for details of defining build targets.

Building TiddlyWikiClassic

12th September 2014 at 2:16pm

TiddlyWiki5 can be used to build older 2.x.x versions of TiddlyWikiClassic from their constituent components. Doing so involves these features:

  • The tiddlywiki/classictools plugin, containing a deserializer module which allows tiddlers to be loaded from TiddlyWiki 2.x.x .recipe files
  • The stripcomments format for the ViewWidget, which strips single line JavaScript comments starting //#
  • The stripTitlePrefix='yes' attribute of the FieldsWidget, which removes prefixes wrapped in curly braces from the title attribute
    • For example, {tiddler}HelloThere would be transformed to HelloThere

Usage

TiddlyWikiClassic is built from the command line by running TiddlyWiki on Node.js. A typical usage would be:

node ../../tiddlywiki.js \
	--verbose \
	--load <path_to_recipe_file> \
	--rendertiddler $:/core/templates/tiddlywiki2.template.html <path_to_write_index_file> text/plain \

ButtonWidget

8th November 2020 at 6:39pm

Introduction

The button widget displays an HTML <button> element that can perform a combination of optional actions when clicked:

  • Executing any ActionWidgets passed in the actions attribute
  • Executing any ActionWidgets that are immediate children of the button widget
  • Execute any integrated actions:
    • Navigate to a specified tiddler
    • Dispatch a user defined widget message
    • Trigger a user defined popup
    • Assign new text to a specified tiddler

The integrated actions are provided as a shortcut for invoking common actions. The same functionality is available via ActionWidgets, with the exception of the support for highlighting selected popups.

Content and Attributes

The content of the <$button> widget is displayed within the button.

AttributeDescription
actionsA string containing ActionWidgets to be triggered when the key combination is detected. New in: 5.1.23 the modifier variable lists the modifier keys that are pressed when the action is invoked. The possible modifiers are ctrl, ctrl-alt, ctrl-shift, alt, alt-shift, shift and ctrl-alt-shift
toThe title of the tiddler to navigate to
messageThe name of the widget message to send when the button is clicked
paramThe optional parameter to the message
setA TextReference to which a new value will be assigned
setTitleA title to which a new value will be assigned, without TextReference. Gets preferred over set
setFieldA field name to which the new value will be assigned, if the attribute setTitle is present. Defaults to the text field
setIndexAn index to which the new value will be assigned, if the attribute setTitle is present
setToThe new value to assign to the TextReference identified in the set attribute or the text field / the field specified through setField / the index specified through setIndex of the title given through setTitle
selectedClassAn optional additional CSS class to be assigned if the popup is triggered or the tiddler specified in set already has the value specified in setTo
defaultDefault value if set tiddler is missing for testing against setTo to determine selectedClass
popupTitle of a state tiddler for a popup that is toggled when the button is clicked. See PopupMechanism for details
popupTitleTitle of a state tiddler for a popup that is toggled when the button is clicked. In difference to the popup attribute, no TextReference is used. See PopupMechanism for details
aria-labelOptional Accessibility label
tooltipOptional tooltip
classAn optional CSS class name to be assigned to the HTML element
styleAn optional CSS style attribute to be assigned to the HTML element
tagAn optional html tag to use instead of the default "button"
dragTiddlerAn optional tiddler title making the button draggable and identifying the payload tiddler. See DraggableWidget for details
dragFilterAn optional filter making the button draggable and identifying the list of payload tiddlers. See DraggableWidget for details
tabindexSets the tabindex attribute of the button to the given value
disabled New in: 5.1.23 Optional, disables the button if set to "yes". Defaults to "no"

Note: In almost all other cases where a TextReference is used as a widget attribute, it will be placed between curly brackets, to transclude the value currently stored there. However, when we use a TextReference as the value of a button widget's set attribute, we are referencing the storage location itself, rather than the value stored there, so we do not use curly brackets there. Example: we could code a button widget that sets the caption field of TiddlerA to be the same as that of TiddlerB as:

New in: 5.1.18 setTitle, setField and setIndex attributes allow specifying Tiddler states directly, without interpreting them as TextReferences. This is useful for edge-cases where titles may contain characters that are used to denote Tiddler fields or indices (!!, ##)

<$button set="TiddlerA!!caption" setTo={{TiddlerB!!caption}} >

Press me!

</$button>

Tip: Set class to tc-btn-invisible tc-tiddlylink to have a button look like an internal link.

CamelCase is formed by taking a phrase, capitalising the initial letter of each word, and smashing the words together to form a portmanteau word. Most wikis use CamelCase to signal phrases that should automatically become links.

changecount Macro

21st February 2015 at 3:12pm

The changecount macro returns the number of times the current tiddler has been created, stored or deleted during the current TiddlyWiki session.

If a tiddler is deleted and subsequently recreated, its changecount will go up by two.

Parameters

(none)

Examples

changecount Macro (Examples)

21st February 2015 at 3:12pm

<<changecount>>

The value will increase if you edit this tiddler and store it again, even without making any changes to its content.

To access the changecount of a different tiddler, use a $tiddler widget:

<$tiddler tiddler="Draft of 'New Tiddler'">
<<changecount>>
</$tiddler>

The value shown will increase whenever you create, store or delete New Tiddler.

Changes to filters in 5.0.9-beta

3rd April 2014 at 10:35pm

Introduction

This release resolves a number of inconsistencies with the way that filters are handled. The changes mean that existing filters may need to be updated - particularly those that must deal with missing or shadow tiddlers.

Changes to is and addition of all

Most filter operators act by choosing some or all of their source titles to pass through or re-order. Those that add new entries that are not drawn from the source list are referred to as selectors. Prior to 5.0.9-beta, a few filter operators were inconsistent in whether they filtered from the source list or selected new entries into it.

The specific changes are:

  • The is operator now always strictly filters from the currently selected list of tiddlers
  • The new all operator acts as a selector by replacing the current list with a combination of tiddlers from specific sources:
    • current for the current tiddler
    • missing for all missing tiddlers
    • orphans for all orphan tiddlers
    • shadows for all shadow tiddlers
    • tiddlers for all non-shadow tiddlers (including both system and non-system tiddlers)

The sources for the all operator can be combined with the + character. For example, [all[shadows+tiddlers]] returns all shadow tiddlers and all ordinary tiddlers.

Previously, it was common to have [is[shadow]] at the start of a filter string to select all the shadow tiddlers. In 5.0.9 and above, this will not return all the shadow tiddlers, but instead just those ordinary tiddlers that are also shadow tiddlers (by virtue of having overridden one). The resolution is to use the new all operator. For example, consider this filter from 5.0.8:

[is[shadow]!has[draft.of]tag[$:/tags/AdvancedSearch]] [!is[shadow]!has[draft.of]tag[$:/tags/AdvancedSearch]] +[tag[$:/tags/AdvancedSearch]]

In 5.0.9, that filter has been changed to:

[all[shadows+tiddlers]tag[$:/tags/AdvancedSearch]!has[draft.of]]

Note how the all operator allows operations to be performed on tiddlers from combinations of sources.

Changes to [is[current]]

One result of the changes is that [is[current]] now strictly filters from the source tiddlers; so, if the current tiddler is a missing tiddler not in the source list, then [is[current]] will return an empty list.

The solution is generally to use [all[current]] instead. It doesn't read as well, but has the required behaviour of returning just the current tiddler, regardless of whether it is in the source tiddlers.

Changes to title and field

There are minor changes to the way that the title and field operators work.

The title operator is a selector: it returns the specified title regardless of whether it is in the current source. title is used as the default operator if none is specified

The field operator is a filter: it only returns a subset of the source tiddlers. field is used as the default operator if the supplied operator is not defined (the supplied operator is passed as the suffix to the field operator, so [description[Missing]] is equivalent to [field:description[Missing]]).

CheckboxWidget

9th November 2020 at 9:07am

Introduction

The checkbox widget displays an HTML <input type="checkbox"> element that is dynamically bound to either:

  • the presence or absence of a specified tag on a specified tiddler
  • the value of a specified field of a specified tiddler

Content and Attributes

The content of the <$checkbox> widget is displayed within an HTML <label> element immediately after the checkbox itself. This means that clicking on the content will toggle the checkbox.

AttributeDescription
tiddlerTitle of the tiddler to manipulate (defaults to the current tiddler)
tagThe name of the tag to which the checkbox is bound
invertTagWhen set to yes, flips the tag binding logic so that the absence of the tag causes the checkbox to be checked
fieldThe name of the field to which the checkbox is bound
index New in: 5.1.14 The index of the tiddler, a DataTiddler, to which the checkbox is bound
be sure to set the tiddler correctly
checkedThe value of the field corresponding to the checkbox being checked
uncheckedThe value of the field corresponding to the checkbox being unchecked
defaultThe default value to use if the field is not defined
classThe class that will be assigned to the label element
actions New in: 5.1.14 A string containing ActionWidgets to be triggered when the status of the checkbox changes (whether it is checked or unchecked)
uncheckactions New in: 5.1.16 A string containing ActionWidgets to be triggered when the checkbox is unchecked
checkactions New in: 5.1.20 A string containing ActionWidgets to be triggered when the checkbox is checked
disabled New in: 5.1.23 Optional, disables the checkbox if set to "yes". Defaults to "no"

Tag Mode

Using the checkbox widget in tag mode requires the tag attribute to specify the name of the tag. The tiddler attribute specifies the tiddler to target, defaulting to the current tiddler if not present.

This example creates a checkbox that flips the done tag on the current tiddler:

<$checkbox tag="done"> Is it done?</$checkbox>

That renders as:

Field Mode

Using the checkbox widget in field mode requires the field attribute to specify the name of the field. The checked and unchecked attributes specify the values to be assigned to the field to correspond to its checked and unchecked states respectively. The default attribute is used as a fallback value if the field is not defined.

This example creates a checkbox that is checked if the field status is equal to open and unchecked if the field is equal to closed. If the field is undefined then it defaults to closed, meaning that the checkbox will be unchecked if the status field is missing.

<$checkbox field="status" checked="open" unchecked="closed" default="closed"> Is it open?</$checkbox><br>''status:'' {{!!status}}

That renders as:


status:

Index Mode

To use the checkbox widget in index mode set the index attribute to the index of a DataTiddler. The checked and unchecked attributes specify the values to be assigned to the index and correspond to its checked and unchecked states respectively. The default attribute is used as a fallback value if the index is undefined.

The example below creates a checkbox that is checked if the index by the name of this tiddler in the tiddler ExampleData is equal to selected and unchecked if the index is an empty string. If the index is undefined then it defaults to an empty string, meaning the checkbox will be unchecked if the index is missing.

<$checkbox tiddler="ExampleData" index=<<currentTiddler>> checked="selected" unchecked="" default=""> Selected?</$checkbox>

That renders as:

Code Blocks in WikiText

6th June 2016 at 2:03pm

You can use triple backticks ``` to mark code blocks ():

```
This will be monospaced
```

Renders as:

This will be monospaced

To be interpreted correctly, the three backticks need to be at the start of the line and immediately followed by a line-break.

Be aware that any preceding paragraph content should be properly terminated with a double line break, too. So, this example is wrong:

This is an ordinary paragraph
```
This will be monospaced
```

The correct version is:

This is an ordinary paragraph

```
This will be monospaced
```

Note that some keyboard layouts treat the backtick as a dead key, making it hard to type. The trick is to type three backticks followed by a space. Alternatively, type all six backticks in one go, then a space, and then move the cursor back three characters to type or paste the content.

CodeBlockWidget

17th August 2016 at 5:53pm

Introduction

The codeblock widget renders text in <pre> and <code> blocks, causing it to be displayed monospace. A language may optionally be specified using the language attribute, however syntax highlighting will only be used if the Highlight Plugin is installed.

Content and Attributes

The content of the <$codeblock> widget is ignored.

AttributeDescription
codeContents of the block to render as code
languageProgramming language for syntax highlighting

The language attribute accepts either:

Examples

Here is an example embedding the contents of a tiddler as a code block.

<$codeblock code={{$:/editions/tw5.com/macro-examples/say-hi}} />

That renders as:

\define sayhi(name:"Bugs Bunny" address:"Rabbit Hole Hill")
Hi, I'm $name$ and I live in $address$.
\end

A codeblock may also specify a language.

<$codeblock code="SELECT * FROM users WHERE deleted = false" language="sql" />

That renders as:

SELECT * FROM users WHERE deleted = false

CodeMirror Plugin

colour Macro

28th February 2020 at 2:28pm

The colour (or color) macro returns the CSS value of one the colours in the current palette.

If no such entry exists in the current palette, the vanilla palette is used instead. If no such entry exists in the vanilla palette, the system looks for a configuration tiddler with the title $:/config/DefaultColourMappings/<colour-name> and transcludes the colour from the text field. This enables to plugins to ship defaults for colours that are not present in the core palettes.

Parameters

name
The name of the palette entry, e.g. page-background

ColourPalettes

17th June 2016 at 10:12am

A colour palette is a data tiddler that supplies a CSS colour value, such as yellow or #fe0, for each of several colour names, like this:

page-background: #fe0
table-border: #ccc
...

Several palettes form part of the core. The system tiddler $:/palette always contains the title of the currently selected palette tiddler. You can change a palette using the palette button, found on the "Tools" tab in the sidebar.

To retrieve the value of a named colour from the current palette, e.g. for use in a stylesheet tiddler, use the colour macro:

<<colour page-background>>

Palette tiddlers should have the following fields:

NameValue
titleTypically starting with $:/
typeapplication/x-tiddler-dictionary
tags$:/tags/Palette
nameDisplayed in the palette browser
descriptionDisplayed in the palette browser
textname: value colour definitions

Comma-Separated Values

21st February 2015 at 6:13pm

CSV is a standard plain-text format for storing a table of data.

Each row of the table is called a record and occupies one line.

The columns are called fields. Each field of a row is separated from the next by a comma, and is often delimited by quotation marks.

The csvtiddlers macro returns tiddler content in this format.

Community Links Aggregator

22nd March 2021 at 3:18pm

The TiddlyWiki Community Links Aggregator is a collection of regularly updated links to useful and interesting TiddlyWiki material curated by our team of community editors. The site aggregates links curated by individual members of the TiddlyWiki community. It lets you see the latest links, and explore them through categories and timelines.

https://links.tiddlywiki.com/

This site works best with a crowd of people posting links. The pressure on individuals is reduced because not everybody needs to catch every interesting link that flies past. The aggregation effects reduce the impact of mistakes. For example, if one person mis-tags a link under an inappropriate topic, the site will show that only one person added that tag, versus the majority using more appropriate tags. In that way, we hope that a sort of wisdom of the crowds will emerge, with consensus emerging as to the most useful ways to describe and categorise links.

compare Operator

12th April 2020 at 6:15pm
purposefilter the input by comparing each item against the operand
inputa selection of titles
suffixthe compare operator uses a rich suffix, see below for details
parameterthe value to compare
outputthose input titles matching the specified comparison
! outputthose input titles not matching the specified comparison

New in: 5.1.22The compare filter allows numerical, string and date comparisons to be performed.

The compare operator uses an extended syntax to specify all the options:

[compare:<type>:<mode>[<operand>]]

The type can be:

  • "number" - invalid numbers are interpreted as zero
  • "integer" - invalid integers are interpreted as zero
  • "string"
  • "date" - invalid dates are interpreted as 1st January 1970
  • "version" - invalid versions are interpreted as "v0.0.0"

The mode can be:

  • "eq" - equal to
  • "ne" - not equal to
  • "gteq" - greater than or equal to
  • "gt" - greater than
  • "lteq" - less than or equal to
  • "lt" - less than

The operator compares each item in the selection against the value of the parameter, retaining only those items that pass the specified condition.

For example:

[[2]compare:number:eq[3]] returns nothing
[[2]compare:number:lt[3]] returns "2"
[[2]compare:number:eq[2]] returns "2"

Note that several of the variants of the compare operator are synonyms for existing operators, and are provided in the interests of consistency. For example, compare:string:eq[x] is a synonym for match[x].

Examples

Concatenating text and variables using macro substitution

15th January 2019 at 4:23pm

It's a frequent use case in TiddlyWiki that you will want to put the results of variables together with various bits of strings of text. This process in some programming languages is often referred to as "concatenating" text.

You might, for instance want to set up a template for your customer database, where links will automatically refer to additional contact information about your customer. Inside your tiddler, you might try something like this:

Warning:
Don't do it this way!
[[Additional Info|<<currentTiddler>>-Contact]]

But that won't work. If you try this, the link will be interpreted very literally, and will attempt to take you to:

<<currentTiddler>>-Contact

The solution is to use a macro to put the rendered value of <<currentTiddler>> together with the bit of additional text, -Contact.

Create a macro at the top of the tiddler like this:

\define linkup(link) [[Additional Info|$link$-Contact]]

You might be tempted to invoke the new macro like this:

Warning:
Don't do it this way!
<<linkup <<currentTiddler>> >>

But if you do, you will find that <<currentTiddler>> doesn't get rendered, but instead gets passed literally.

Instead, you could use the MacroCallWidget widget, like this:

<$macrocall $name="linkup" link=<<currentTiddler>> />

In this case, we passed the value of a variable directly to our macro. This is often a general way to go about this task. If you wanted to create more links based on other variables you could re-use the macro for each situation.

If, as in this case, the only variable you are using is currentTiddler then you could write a simple macro, like this:

\define linkup() [[Additional Info|$(currentTiddler)$-Contact]]

Notice that in this case we don't pass an argument. Instead, we reference the variable using the special syntax $(variable)$. Since we don't pass an argument, we can invoke it without the <$macrocall> widget more simply, like this:

<<linkup>>

Conditional Operators

2nd August 2019 at 1:27pm

New in: 5.1.20The conditional filter operators allow if-then-else logic to be expressed within filters.

The foundation is the convention that an empty list can be used to represent the boolean value false and a list with at one (or more) entries to represent true.

The conditional operators are:

  • then Operator replaces any input values with a constant string. For example:
    • [[HelloThere]is[missing]then[FOO]] evaluates to (empty)
    • [[Missing Tiddler]is[missing]then[FOO]] evaluates to FOO
  • else Operator if the title list is empty then returns a constant string, otherwise returns the original title list
    • [[HelloThere]is[tiddler]else[BAR]] evaluates to HelloThere
    • [[Missing Tiddler]is[tiddler]else[BAR]] evaluates to BAR

These operators can be combined. For example:

[[New Tiddler]is[missing]then[I am missing]else[No I am not missing]] evaluates to I am missing

The else Operator can be used to apply a defaults for missing values. In this example, we take advantage of the fact that the get Operator returns an empty list if the field or tiddler does not exist:

[[HelloThere]get[custom-field]else[default-value]] evaluates to default-value

Configuring startup tiddlers

6th March 2018 at 4:14pm

You can configure TiddlyWiki to start up using whatever individual or group of tiddlers you want using the default tiddlers mechanism.

In the control panel under the info tab is an input field labeled "Choose which tiddlers are displayed at startup". You can list whatever tiddlers you want to open at startup. Use double square brackets for titles containing spaces. For example:

FirstTiddler
SecondTiddler
[[Third Tiddler]]

You can also use filter expressions to open more than one tiddler. For example:

[tag[HelloThere]]

will open all tiddlers tagged as .

You can also use this technique to preserve open tiddlers at startup

See also StartupActions for controlling more advanced startup behaviours.

Configuring the default TiddlerInfo tab

12th September 2014 at 2:59pm

The configuration tiddler $:/config/TiddlerInfo/Default contains the title of the tiddler containing the default tiddler info tab.

The default value is $:/core/ui/TiddlerInfo/Tools corresponding to the
