Your *Enumerator Plugin* is Brilliant! It actually goes beyond what I
originally thought was needed and solves not just my original query but
effectively deals also the "overwrite" problem because you can import
knowing you are NOT going to have name conflicts.
I been testing it. It works perfectly. Just FYI, my workflow with it was ...
1 - In TW Reggie (where I prep the text), create the Jason (with all titles
as "PERRY MASON")
2 - In TW PerryMason (the final destination) simply cut and paste the
content of the the Jason from (1) into a JSON tiddler in TW PerryMason.
[Note: I'll install your plugin on destination TW because that's where its
3 - Press the button to create the Tiddlers. Bingo!
Whole process from collection of 8 Perry Mason texts from the net,
conversion to Json, transfer to final destination TW, press the button: 15
minutes. 2056 Tiddlers created. That's what I call GOOD! :-)
I also tested it using more than one "title" value in one Jason. And also
used a second Jason. Works great. Numbering is exactly right.
The ONLY issue I have, which I'm not sure if its solvable, is that the
numbers are not padded. To explain ... In the use case I hope its clear I'm
simply using the Tiddler Title as an INDEX (on the destination TW the
titles won't be shown). Because they are not padded the *sort order goes
weird*. So the listing (after save) starts looking like this ...
Being able to have *indices that run from #0001 to #9999* would be icing on
the cake. But I suspect its difficult? Because of the way TW creates new
An alternative that could maybe work is listing the Tiddlers created in
time order* (latest first, so you see how many you have but I'm unsure if
all the time stamps would differ).
Anyway. I'm incredibly grateful for what you have created.
And I'm sure its going to be useful for a lot more users than.
P.S. Whilst I was getting the plugin I noticed you have a UUID maker. I'm
probably going to try that too for a different kind of indexing issue I
