The JSON data returned comprises the following properties:

  • anonymous - true if the current user is anonymous
  • read_only - true if the current user is restricted to read only access to the server

  • space - always contains the object {recipe: "default"}
  • tiddlywiki_version - the current TiddlyWiki version

For example:

  "anonymous": true,
  "read_only": false,
  "space": {
    "recipe": "default"
  "tiddlywiki_version": "5.1.18"
