Working with the TiddlyWiki5 repository

 20th September 2014 at 1:44pm


If you want to contribute to TiddlyWiki's development, rather than installing TiddlyWiki in the usual way, you can work directly with the GitHub repository.

Mario Pietsch has created a short video introduction.

Setting Up

  1. Create an account on GitHub if you don't already have one
  2. Fork the TiddlyWiki5 GitHub repository from
  3. Clone a local copy of your fork
  4. Open a command line terminal and change the current working directory to the root of the repo
  5. Type npm link (Windows) or sudo npm link (Mac/Linux) to tell npm to use this copy of the repo as the globally installed one

After this procedure you can work with TiddlyWiki5 via npm as though it were installed in the usual way with npm install -g tiddlywiki.
