This is amazing!
The quick toolbar at the bottom is lovely!
The aggregation shortcuts, the checklist, … all are designed in a very smart way!

Thank you


This edition is very good for beginners. I’m also considering packaging some tutorials as a plugin into my edition, so new users can immediately know what he/she can do.

TiddlyWiki xp in its recent update has added great features and improved its previously added tools. Some of them are

  1. sidebar note
  2. sidebar GTD
  3. tag editor in view mode
  4. map
  5. live view
  6. number of chars in body/title in edit mode
  7. bottom bar for quick access
  8. a button in edit mode to maximize the editor (occupy the whole width…)
  9. a daily note
  10. a diary

It is a great resource for learning!

It provides a link to download an empty.html

I like its A beginer’s guide and its nice start point.

TiddlyWiki xp is pretty stunning, I’m very impressed. It aggregates the best third party addons for TiddlyWiki and adds some very powerful extensions of its own.

I recommend exploring the left hand menu items. The plugin recommendations particularly caught my eye:

The filter builder is interesting too. As far as I can tell, it is made by the author of TiddlyWiki xp:


Yes, Keaton Lao has created many plug ins for this XP edition which can be seen under the plug in tab. In addition to filter builder, there is also ‘query’ tab in the advanced search → $:/QUERY

I have no idea what XP means here.

Am i missing something?.

It should stand for TiddlyWiki Experiment ?

According to About XP (via Google Translate) it means Experience in that this edition has a lot of tools and customizations set up to quickly and easily allow a new user to experience a fully-functioning program with a lot of options right out-of-the-box.

It looks like this is Keaton’s version of what @TW_Tones is thinking about with A Standard Edition that can be an easier intro to TW

Hello, your wiki looks very interesting. Is the language Mandarin? Because Google Translate cannot translate all of it.
