TiddlyWiki - wiki journal

This is a very nice way to provide the power of wiki to a journal. Main advanatages of a wiki:-
  1. Very easy to create and edit content
  2. Neednot worry about the html syntax
  3. Interlinking the articles in like punctuating words
One major disadvantage of a wiki is that it expects us to learn new conventions for formating and linking texts. If one is already familiar with html, this is a bit irritating untill one gets used to the new wiki conventions. Some interesting features of TiddlyWiki:-
  1. It is purely html and javascript based, so works on any browser, best on firefox.
  2. It doesnot depend on any server technology
  3. All the content is in one html page
Some journal specific features of TiddlyWiki:-
  1. One click creation of new date stamp titled journal entry
  2. Generates xml feeds
  3. Allows tagging of entries ( here an entry is called a tiddler )
  4. Searching of tiddlers, including regex search capabilities
  5. Though it is non-linear, it gives a timeline view
