Wiki For You and Me

Filed under: Information — inVINCEble @ 3:10 pm

You probably have heard what a Wiki is. Most of you probably have played around with Wikis. But to personally have one for yourself whether at work or home, probably not so much. Well, I ran into something pretty cool and have been using it for several months now is a personal Wiki called TiddlyWiki. As the name implies, it is rather small and works best just on your personal computer. It behaves very similar to other Wikis except it opens everything within one window.
Go to here to see for yourself: http://www.tiddlywiki.com/
TiddlyWiki Tutorial: http://www.blogjones.com/TiddlyWikiTutorial.html

I am currently using it at work to be able to make entries and journals on a daily basis of important information. I also have all the important links for my work in easy access in an entry called “WorkLinks”.  An entry in TiddlyWiki is called a “Tiddler”. I then have a shortcut to this Tiddler on my main menu. With that, I can access all the links I need.

You do not need HTML knowledge to use TiddlyWiki but you will benefit greatly if you look at the tutorial because there’s certain tricks and tips on how to use the Wiki to it’s fullest extent. For example, if you would like to have a link in the entry and have it say “Click here” rather than the actual URL, then you will need to write it in a particular format.
Example: [[Click here|http://someurl.com]]

  1. i am a big wiki fan and use a web wiki and a desktop wiki on the mac. can’t live without one. my only problem is they all do things reasonably well but there’s always something i am missing that i have to have. tiddlywiki is an example. i’m not expecting them to behave like the web but i would like them to do a few things better usability wise.
