If you wish to build a native app based on TiddlyWiki then TiddlyDesktop might
be a reasonable place to start. Alternately, you could consider just adding the
enhancements you need as TiddlyDesktop plugins - it’s very extensible, like

It’ll still be a wiki, at least in the sense that TW uses the term (roughly, an
application for composing hypertext). But it doesn’t need to look like a wiki
to the end user; by replacing $:/core/ui/PageTemplate one can have an entirely
custom user interface.

Yes, TiddlyDesktop plugins have access to Node.js APIs.
