Savage Eberron

One thing I've noticed is that there are a large number of Tiddlyspot sites about Role Playing Games (RPGs). RPG wikis might be one of the the biggest killer apps for TiddlyWiki that almost no-one has heard of. At least they don't get mentioned much on the TW mailing lists.

Anway here's one I found that uses the "TagglyTagging" features of MonkeyPirateTiddlyWiki (MPTW) so beautifully that I wanted to show it to you. Notice the multi-level contents under Main? It's a just a four column TagglyTagging list in sitemap mode. Click "New Edges" and notice the use of a grouped TagglyTagging list. This site is a pleasure to navigate and really shows off what TagglyTagging can do. Much kudos. Now how about a nice tasteful custom ColorPalette as icing on the cake?


Saving your site using Prism

A user has reported that he couldn't save his site while using Prism (the new WebRunner), so beware. Has anyone else given this a try?

TiddlyFolio is a nice little TiddlyWiki package designed to be a handy place to encrypt and store your bank accounts and credit card numbers. TiddlyFolio could be made into a Tiddlyspot flavour. Let me know there's a demand for this. Personally the thought of putting this kind of sensitive information on Tiddlyspot makes me a little nervous, especially given that we don't have https. Though as long as there is fool proof client-side encryption then it should be okay right?

Proxy service now open for *

posted by simon on Friday, November 02, 2007

Previously only selected Tiddlyspot sites were permitted by the proxy. Now you can import tiddlers from any Tiddlyspot site. This should be useful if you have multiple Tiddlyspot sites and you would like to transfer or dynamically fetch content from one to another. It also allows TiddlyChatter to work nicely across Tiddlyspot sites.

Ps, anyone know if IncludePlugin works from one Tiddlyspot site to another via the proxy?

ASciencePad (lack of) support

posted by simon on Friday, November 02, 2007

ASciencePad is a nice TW adaptation featuring a nice WYSIWYG and support for mathematical equations. Unfortunately it's a non-standard TW we can't support it on Tiddlyspot. However I have installed the HTMLArea files and made them available to your site. So if any hackers want to have a go at getting the WYSIWYG to work in a standard TiddlyWiki with HTMLArea then it should work on Tiddlyspot. You can see the HTMLArea files at

HTMLArea demo here.

jsMath is also available in case you didn't know that already.

Hit counter offline

posted by simon on Friday, November 02, 2007

The Tiddlyspot hit counter data came from a particular set of stats files that Dreamhost used to build daily. A few months ago these stopped updating. I asked Dreamhost about it and after some initial confusion they have told me that they aren't going to be updated any more. So the hit counter page is unavailable until I can whip up some replacement scripts to read data from the apache logs. Apologies for the inconvenience.
