ZiddlyWiki is a hack/adaptation of TiddlyWiki thrown together by TimMorgan?. It provides ServerSide? storage of the wiki (tiddler) content by combining the power of TiddlyWiki with Zope.

After switching the page to restructured text, it seems better.

Babysitter and Idea --BobMcElrath, Mon, 14 Aug 2006 15:54:23 -0700 reply
I (Bob McElrath?) have agreed to baby-sit the codebase. Though I honestly don't think I can be any more active than I have been with ZWiki or Axiom as of late. Anyway, it will live on. Not sure why Tim pulled it so abruptly.

I had a silly idea too...someone posted yesterday some new wikifiers for MediaWiki?, Trac, and TWiki . As I have a pile of ZWiki content, it strikes me as very interesting to also make a StructuredText or reStructuredText wikifier for ZiddlyWiki. In TiddlyWiki 2.1 this is as simple as writing down the regexes for the rules and tagging your Tiddlers (wiki pages) with StructuredTextFormatting?. This could allow one to have a "real" wiki in zope, and also be able to export the entire thing to a TiddlyWiki file for offline use. I'm having an idea of subject-specific TiddlyWiki's that might collect information from Wikipedia and private wikis to create a minor knowledge base in a single file, on a single topic. Then one could have the idea of content that flows the other direction...updates to ZWiki from a TiddlyWiki/ZiddlyWiki...

Anybody bored and need a project? Go for it. ;)

I'm not offering to take over baby-sitting, but ZW seems the best of a bad lot when it comes to ServerSide? TW.

This is frustrating because TW is far and away the best wiki technology on the planet today. Go check if you don't believe me. Yes, I know this is - I've run a zwiki since the early days. TW with its tagging and client side technologies simply obsoletes it. I'd like to suggest we reimplement zwiki purely as a tiddler server for TW ... okay, tar and feather me, I can take it ... --PeterMerel
