Have you tried TiddlyWiki for your notes?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

TiddlyWiki is a non-linear note-taking tool for capturing, organizing, and sharing complex information. It’s been around for about 15 years!

Because it’s so modular, there is no limit but your imagination to what you can do with TiddlyWiki. It’s a free, open-source, and self-hosted alternative to many of the paid, proprietary note-taking tools you may be using at the moment.

Have you ever tried it and if so, would you recommend it?

Yes! I have a public one you can view:
I use this as a notebook. There is a mind mapping plugin that I want to try.
I first found TW when looking at Getting Things Done tools. But it's much more broad in application than GTD.
TiddlyWiki is to Media Wiki as SQLite is to PostgreSQL.

It's some janky, outdated jquery JS and a bit of CSS for the blinking cursor.

Here's the redirect site's source code:

A slightly better example is the 404 page from my main site: which uses randomised timings to simulate keyboard typing.

I copied this from someone else's blog a few years ago. I like the retro/Hollywood feel of it. Pretty sure you can copy it too.
