TiddlyWiki is like Tinderbox in a browser
I remain fascinated by wikis in general and TiddlyWiki in particular. At Fusionary we use Confluence and Gitlab wikis. I’ve had a number of false starts over the years with TiddlyWiki, but a recent realization has helped me take a serious run at it. (Cue sound of several pieces clicking together)

- Manage a collection of notes
- Can automatically collect notes based on various criteria
- Allow for different visualizations
- Offer flexible searching options
- Contain their own macro language
- Allow for custom metadata for individual notes
While they certainly don’t offer a 1-to-1 set of features, realizing the similarities has given me an idea for how I can use TiddlyWiki for more than just an occasional experiment. Finally!
