Using a TiddlyWiki: a video guide

I am a long-time user of TiddlyWikis and its various adaptations. Before a catastrophic accident involving the synchronization of various offline files wiped out my tasks list, I was an extensive user of GTDTiddlyWiki. After the accident, I moved to a server-side TiddlyWiki, alternating between and ZiddlyWiki before finally settling with TiddlySpot.

I am also a long-time TiddlyWiki “evangelist.” Any chance I get to introduce TiddlyWiki, I’d show it off.

TiddlyWiki is a great script to manage your notes and task list. It’s a single page that you can edit with your browser. Although it is very easy to use, TiddlyWikis can be confusing to some people, especially those not familiar with wikis.

I find that if I show people how to edit a TiddlyWiki, they immediately get the idea behind it and you can leave them on their own, a new TiddlyWiki convert.

Here’s a video tutorial on how to use a TiddlyWiki. It was done for those still unfamiliar with the script.


I have just come across this site after looking to build my own public wiki.

This is also my first time learning about what GTD is.

I think a personal wiki will be great for me.


Boss, you have my MMO user name! LOL…anyway, i’m a Ubuntu + Tiddlywiki noob from Cebu and I just could not resist clicking the link when it said : Screencasts from … LeonKilat

I always thought that was the coolest name.

It is indeed a cool name, one that was borne by a revolutionary who met a tragic end. It’s great to hear from other Ubuntu, TiddlyWiki user from Cebu. Alert me if you plan to meet up so that I can attend. Have you heard of Ubuntu release parties in the city?
