    A great app yet a bit complicated

    Not too far ago, I invested several days into "mastering" and tuning TiddlyWiki. It was an interesting experience. I loved it on the whole and felt very enthusiastic about using it store all my knowledge. It's super flexible and use of tags, filters and macros make it unique. However, it's a bit complicated for mass adoption. Also, the extended use of its powerful features may make your computer tangibly slow.

    That's why I found "Obsidian", that's what I'm using today to store my knowledge.

    👍 Pros:    Very flexible|Browser based

    Good technology alone isn't enough to lead to adoption. Tiddlywiki, imo, is the best personal blogging tools. It is a static site, it got an embedded editor, it got cool concepts realised like transclusion, among many others. Go ask around, I bet hardly anyone talks about it. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? - Source: Hacker News / 7 days ago

  • I can’t organize my DM notes… any help?
    I use a tiddlywiki for NPCs, locations, items, &c. Because it is non-linear and I can have all of, and only the information I want in front of me. - Source: Reddit / 24 days ago
  • Self hosting D&D campaign notes
    TiddlyWiki. Stupid name, but it's the most powerful knowledge engine I'm aware of. Give in a spin and you won't regret it. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Software to make interactive eBooks/Alternatives to Kotobee Author
    Most LMS are overkill; I just want to make very simple "digital textbooks". BookStack and mdBook are nice but lack quizing and annotations. In worst case, I can make my own solution with TiddlyWiki I guess, but I wonder if someone knows about relevant software or good search terms?:) Perhaps some blogging platforms are as good as wikis? - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Introducing the Eberron Tiddlywiki, an extensive database, map, and notebook for all things Eberron
    Hello! For the last year and a half or so, I have been working on creating an all-inclusive Tiddlywiki for Eberron, and I think it's finally ready to be shared! - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Finished Stand Alone WiFi Plex Server for the Mountains. Messy, but works from any web browser connected to the WiFi network. One Pi is the router, one is a Kodi media center and one is a Plex server.
    I recommend tiddlywiki for that. Self hosted, no database wiki site. The nodejs version is trivial to install. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
