Another Update in this Quest I am now running a local nodeJS instance of tiddlywiki on each of my windows machines (and incidently my Android phone). I use windows scheduler to launch the nodeJS instance on startup so the server is available before I login. If I am logged in the variouse UNC and File or folder links are processed by the firefox addon "Local file system links" and will open a windows explorer windows on folders direct from a click in tiddlywiki. If browsing a folder from inside firefox I can click on a known file type and it opens in the app eg; Office 365 apps, if the filetype is unknown I can r-click > Link Addon > Open containing folder and simply pressing enter will launch the program or the filetype associated program.
Using the Family tree stylesheet I have now created a simple map of Network locations eg; Now combined with my aformentioned OS Command execution I am well on the way to making the Desktop Interactive TiddlyWiki.
