[twdev] Manually adding tiddlers in TW5 - why are they not detected?

2018-03-02 Thread joearms
I'm using the node server version of TW5 As an experiment I thought I could just drop new .tid files into the tiddlers sub-directory but the system does not seem to find these files. 1) I made a tiddler called Hello This gets saved in the tiddlers directory in a file Hello.tid 2) I

[twdev] Keeping all old versions of a tiddler TW5 server

Can I keep all old versions of a tiddler in TW5? Would this be a good idea? (Why? because I made a Wiki a few years ago that did this - and the overheads were quite small - if you diff and compress the files) /Joe -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups

I was wondering about attachments in the node/server version of TW5 It might be me but I find the act of attaching a file to TW5 overly complicated, and I still haven't figured out how to do this :-( What I'd like: In the TW file system there is a directory called 'attachments' (parallel to

my last guess: the node process should be restarted I like using pm2 for that (npm -g install pm2 or how you do it on your machine) pm2 gracefulReload yourprocess is very handy -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "TiddlyWikiDev" group. To unsubscribe

Do you 1) Put all your tiddlers in one name space (ie one TW) 2) Put them into different namespaces (one TW per project) Tiddlers should be small (in order to make them reusable) If they are (say) on average c. 300 bytes we could get 3 tiddlers per KB of 3K tiddlers / MB or 3M tiddlers per GB

Hi Joe, this is most definitely possible and something I think most people in the community already use. The way I do it is to put these "external" files into a "files/" directory in the node server directory and add a tiddler with the "_canonical_uri" field set to the relative path to the

Yes, you can/must have an icon per plugin. The icon is shown in the control panel’s plugin list. Here is one of the more colourful examples: https://tid.li/tw5/plugins.html#%24%3A%2FControlPanel Good luck! Thomas -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups

About namespaces: In TW everything is a tiddler. Eg: plugins. A plugin is a tiddler, with a content-type: application/json and a field: plugin-type: plugin This tiddler contains several other tiddlers. At startup, those "content" tiddlers are extracted into ShadowTiddlers. See:
