Help! tiddlywiki on nodejs can't find my wiki after computer restart

this is a troubleshooting question, I hope I’m posting in the right place.

I installed Tiddlywiki 5.2.5 on node v19.7.0 on my Mac 13.2.1 yesterday, worked fine. At some point this machine crashed (very likely due to unrelated reasons) and when I now try to put it in --listen mode, this happens:

➜  ~ tiddlywiki Twiki --listen
Warning: Wiki folder 'Twiki' does not exist or is missing a file
Warning: Plugin(s) required for client-server operation are missing.
"$:/plugins/tiddlywiki/filesystem", "$:/plugins/tiddlywiki/tiddlyweb"
Serving on
(press ctrl-C to exit)

The files of my wiki are still in the expected path (well I expect it there) but computer disagrees. Can anyone give me a hint how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks a lot for reading,


First change your path to the folder (directory) where you stored Twiki. Then issue

tiddlywiki Twiki --listen

The warning means wiki folder was not found!
