Showcase: TiddlyWiki, a JavaScript Microcontent Wiki

Category: Showcase

TiddlyWiki is “an experimental MicroContent WikiWikiWeb built by JeremyRuston. It’s written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript to run on any modern browser without needing any ServerSide logic. It allows anyone to create personal SelfContained hypertext documents that can be posted to any web server, sent by email or kept on a USB thumb drive to make a WikiOnAStick.”

There are some really nice effects as you go from div to div you will see that you can edit/tweak on the fly.

As you click on a wiki-name, it will “fly” into existence on the same page rather than take you to a fresh one which is interesting.

Version 3 just came out, which allows you to make changes!

Very cool.

true, but it’s not ajax in any way, is it? just to nitpick. it just hides content and shows it on demand. this is one project that could benefit from a ajax-to-backend implementation, though.

There’s a few forks of v2 that do backend stuff, but the main one (phptiddlywiki) goes overboard by using php/mysql when sqlite, xml, json, or hell, plaintext ‘d do just fine.

It’s a wonderful technology – waiting to be ajaxified, yes – but to be able to have a “choose your own adventure” document that you can carry around with you (because it has the program built right in), my head just spins with the possibilities.

Newbies should check out:
