Tiddlyspot "save to web" is back!

posted by simon on Sunday, March 28, 2021

I'm pleased to announce that the "save to web" functionality has been restored.

It's new and there might be bugs, but it seems to be working well for me at least. Try it and let me know if you have problems.

The way it works is that Tiddlyhost has taken over the tiddlyspot.com domain name and now serves all the old Tiddlyspot sites, with the UploadPlugin based "save to web" support just like the old days.

Tiddlyspot saving requires just the upload password. It doesn't require a Tiddlyhost account or current login, but if you do have a Tiddlyhost account you can claim ownership of a Tiddlyspot site, which lets you see it in your sites list, and (in future) will let you do things like change the password, and some other stuff I won't mention just yet.

This means the old tiddlyspot is finally resting peacefully, a few months short of its 15th birthday. The torch is passed. :)

This is great, thank you!

Since I have kept the file on my local drive for a while and it becomes out of sync with the version on Tiddlyspot, is there an easy way to upload and overwrite with the local file? Thanks!

@yangbo02 I'm sure there's a bunch of ways to do that, but I don't know the details. And it would depend on whether you're on TW5 of Classic.

@simon Thanks for your response. So on the tiddlyhost site management, the action button for tiddlyhost.com sites has "upload", which is not present for tiddlyspot.com sites. I have not upgraded for years, and it displays "mGSD 3.1.8b beta". Any hints which direction I should look into? Many thanks!
