So there you have it. No more scrolling through long documents. No more wading through folders. No more scraps of paper.
Just create tiddlers, tag them, tuck them away, then call them up quickly when you need them. Only as many as you want. In the order that you want. It’s that simple.
TiddlyWiki is basically an HTML file (a web page file) that you open with nothing more than your Internet browser.
Any recent browser on any computer will work, though Mozilla Firefox works best.
You do not need to be online to use TiddlyWiki. The idea is that you save your free TiddlyWiki file to your computer. Then it’s completely yours.
Put your TiddlyWiki on a USB drive , and you have a “Wiki on a stick” that can be edited on virtually any computer!
How to download a basic TiddlyWiki: 1. Go to www.tiddlywiki.com
2. Click on ‘Download software’ in the left menu
3. Right-click “this link to empty.html” then select “Save link as” or “Save target as” to save the file to your computer.
4. Close your Internet browser and open your very own new TiddlyWiki file to begin using it!
