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.
