TiddlyWiki on Node.js

12th April 2015 at 6:54pm

Running TiddlyWiki on Node.js brings several important benefits over and above the single file version:

  • You can edit your content on any suitably compatible HTML5 browser, including smartphones and tablets
  • Individual tiddlers are stored in separate files, which you can organise as you wish
  • The ability to build multiple wikis that blend different combinations of shared and unique content

There are a few file system limitations you should be aware of that are related to how TiddlyWiki was designed:

  • The best, most general way to interact with a running wiki is via the HTTP or JavaScript API, rather than manipulating the file store directly
  • Any modification to the contents of the wiki folder (e.g. images) might thus sometimes require that your restart the node.js server
  • TiddlyWiki might support manipulating the file store directly in the future
