If you develop with TiddlyWeb and are upgrading 1.0 to 1.2 there have been changes you should make yourself aware of. Read UPGRADE1.0to1.2.
TiddlyWeb, aka mo'ass, is a RESTful data store which forms the core of a reference implementation of server side implementation for TiddlyWiki. It tries to provide a tested, documented, and clear implementation of several facets that make up a good server-side:
- transparent system and code suitable for porting to other languages (where use specific optimizations will hopefully occur)
- an abstract model for authentication and authorization
- an implementation of authenticated recipes and bags allowing the conrolled access to dynamically created collections of tiddlers
- clean HTTP API based on REST principles
- test driven description and development
The system is designed so that parts that are not optimal for a particular installation can be easily improved or swapped out via plugins.
While TiddlyWeb was designed as a TiddlyWiki server-side it can also be used as a generic data store that builds on concepts learned from TiddlyWiki, primarily the concept of the tiddler: a small chunk of data used to build up a greater whole.
TiddlyWeb includes a command line tool called twanager. Run twanager without arguments for a list of available commands.
pip install -U tiddlyweb
If you wish to use TiddlyWeb as a server-side for TiddlyWiki to generate a multi-user TiddlyWiki system, you will also need tiddlywebwiki. This too can be installed via pip. Installing tiddlywebwiki will install tiddlyweb for you:
pip install -U tiddlywebwiki
Or you can install by hand, you will need the following requirements:
- Python 2.4, 2.5 or 2.6. (Python 3 has not yet been tested.)
- selector: http://lukearno.com/projects/selector/
- simplejson: http://undefined.org/python/#simplejson
- html5lib (for sanitizing input which may be rendered as HTML): http://code.google.com/p/html5lib/
See http://tiddlyweb.peermore.com/ for a TiddlyWiki generated by TiddlyWeb and TiddlyWebWiki, a TiddlyWeb plugin that provides TidldyWiki server-side functionality. That wiki contains the TiddlyWeb documentation. You can also leave comments there to help improve the documentation.
See http://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=tiddlywebplugins for plugins that TiddlyWeb can use with itself.
See http://tiddlyspace.com/ for a shared hosting service built on TiddlyWeb.
