- Clone a local copy of the TiddlyWiki5 GitHub repository from https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5
- Open a command line terminal and change the current working directory to the root of the TiddlyWiki5 repo
npm link (Windows) or
sudo npm link (Mac/Linux) to tell npm to use this copy of the repo as the globally installed one
- Inside the root, you can launch TiddlyWiki like this:
tiddlywiki editions/tw5.com-server --listen
After this procedure you can work with TiddlyWiki5 via npm as though it had been installed in the usual way with
npm install -g tiddlywiki.
Update the clone from time to time in order to ensure that you have the latest code.
