This is a significant update to catch up with the latest version of NW.js:

  • Resolves bugs related to window positioning (e.g. quitting while windows are minimised) by using NW.js built-in window handling
  • Updated visual appearance for the main toolbar
  • New, more distinctive application icon


As always, please exercise caution when upgrading -- take backups, and look out for unexpected behaviours.

  • Experimental support for "wiki folders" (the Node.js format for TiddlyWiki, where each tiddler is a separate file), including the ability to serve wiki folders over HTTP so that you can use any browser or device to access them
  • Switched from representing wikis as thumbnails to favicons
  • New system tray/menu icon for quick access to TiddlyDesktop
  • Fixed problem with restarting after quitting with minimised windows on Windows (#77)
  • Added TiddlyDesktop version number to "Help" window

Note: Upgrading to this release will clear your list of loaded wiki files. The files themselves are not affected; you can re-add them by dragging and dropping them into the wiki list window.

This release includes a major reworking of the internals of TiddlyDesktop.

Please report any problems or suggestions via GitHub issues, or post to the TiddlyWiki discussion group:


New Features

  • Warning message when closing windows with unsaved changes (TWC and TW 5.1.8 and above only)
  • Help window
  • Toolbar for TiddlyWiki windows
  • Reveal original file in Finder/Explorer
  • Automatic backups

Note that there is currently no way to hide the toolbar for TiddlyWiki windows. This will be remedied soon!

New Architecture

TiddlyDesktop itself is now an instance of the Node.js edition of TiddlyWiki. TiddlyWiki HTML files are run within embedded, sandboxed iframes with the "backstage" TiddlyWiki providing services such as saving to the file system.

The advantage of this approach is that the user interface and functionality of the desktop application can now be customised and extended with exactly the same techniques that are used in regular TiddlyWiki.

Coming Soon

The functionality of this release barely matches that of the previous v0.0.3 version, but it lays the groundwork for a number of other features such as

  • configurable toolbars
  • hyperbookmarklets
  • page zoom
  • creating new wikis from standard editions and custom templates
  • dragging _canonical_uri links from the file system
  • multiple languages
  • one-click copying of text to the clipboard from within TiddlyWiki
  • global keyboard shortcut for clipping content
