UPDATE: I am not aware of a simple solution to drag and drop images into tiddlywiki that will result in links, and not embedded files. Please enlighten me!
I’ve been using a Tiddlywiki as my electron notebook – so far so good. However, it’s been annoying have to type/cut and paste or otherwise do work to insert images.
The process of import Tiddlywiki plugins is straightforward, but not obvious – make sure you’ve backed up before you start playing with it. This is how I imported AttachFilePackage.
- Navigate to the TiddlyTools page and work out what plugins/packages you want. Sadly I have not figured out yet how to import packages in one operation.
- Find a link to the main TiddlyTools, and use right-click save as to save the file
- Open the local copy of TiddlyTools
- Open your tiddlywiki in another tab, and choose import from the backstage menu
- Enter the location of the file you just downloaded, and follow the prompts
- This is where I think I missed something – I manually checked all the individual plugins comprising the package. It’s not that much extra work
- Note that if you want the attach menu to appear backstage you’ll need the backstage package too
And there you have it – one upgraded Tiddlywiki!
err, I should point out that this doesn’t work in Firefox on Ubuntu. Grrrrr
The other drawback is that it saves the image in the file itself – leading to rapid bloat of your Tiddlywiki.
