  • Pressing the . key on any repository or pull request.
  • Swapping .com with .dev in the URL.

Doc : The web-based editor - GitHub Docs

Since tiddlywiki is using GitHub I thought this might interest the devs that are here.

I think this feature could also ease the process to edit the documentation, since it supports @joshuafontany VSCode addon’s :slight_smile:

Maybe the tiddlywiki doc should mention it ?

There is a post here 7 Steps to Improve the TiddlyWiki Documentation that talks about improving TW docs using TiddlyWiki directly from that page.

Since we now have addons for CodeMirror that support code highlighting etc, we could potentially add those to the “PR maker” wiki.

Please do! That’s the only advantage the visual studio web editor has vs the PR maker.
Now that there is a monaco plugin for tiddlywiki, maybe this would be even better than codemirror ?

I may not find the time for a while but if anybody feels so inclined, I would welcome a PR to add the plugins:
