Initialise an empty WikiFolder with a copy of the specified edition.

--init <edition> [<edition> ...]

For example:

tiddlywiki ./MyWikiFolder --init empty


  • The wiki folder directory will be created if necessary
  • The "edition" defaults to empty
  • The init command will fail if the wiki folder is not empty
  • The init command removes any includeWikis definitions in the edition's file
  • When multiple editions are specified, editions initialised later will overwrite any files shared with earlier editions (so, the final file will be copied from the last edition)
  • --editions returns a list of available editions
