This screencast is how I finished up the 12Days project, as it captures a lot about what I have come to appreciate in TiddlyWiki. It shows how you can do some simple hacking in the browser, in a single-page web app, reusing and configuring existing plugins from the community. And you can then “turn the handle” to deploy it into a multi-user environment, through the magic of TiddlyWeb. The deployment process in the video uses Hoster, which provides lower-level functionality, but it will be even simpler when TiddlySpace is mature.
This is a screencast showing the evolution of a tiddlywiki, starting from a freshly-minted TiddlyWiki downloaded from TiddlyWiki.com, and transforming it into a viable multi-user forum. The steps shown in this screencast:
Customising the forum’s look-and-feel by updating shadow tiddlers (SiteTitle, SiteSubtitle, ColorPalette, StyleSheet, DefaultTiddlers, MainMenu). Using tags, the list macro, and the newTiddler macro to show and create new topics. Reusing components with backstage (CommentsPlugin, SinglePageMode, TaggedTemplateTweak) Building a custom macro (taggedCount) Transforming into a multi-user forum (Hoster)
