Without it, TiddlyWiki will only be available in the directory where you installed it.If you are using Debian or Debian-based Linux and you are receiving a node: command not found error though node.js package is installed, you may need to create a symbolic link between nodejs and node. Consult your distro's manual and whereis to correctly create a link. See github issue 1434Example Debian v8.0: sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/nodeYou can also install prior versions like this:npm install -g [email protected]Using TiddlyWiki on Node.jsTiddlyWiki5 includes a set of Commands for use on the command line to perform an extensive set of operations based on TiddlyWikiFolders, TiddlerFiles and TiddlyWikiFiles.For example, the following command loads the tiddlers from a TiddlyWiki HTML file and then saves one of them in static HTML:tiddlywiki --verbose --load mywiki.html --rendertiddler ReadMe ./readme.htmlRunning tiddlywiki from the command line boots the TiddlyWiki kernel, loads the core plugins and establishes an empty wiki store. It then sequentially processes the command line arguments from left to right. The arguments are separated with spaces. New in: 5.1.20 First, there can be zero or more plugin references identified by the prefix + for plugin names or ++ for a path to a plugin folder. These plugins are loaded in addition to any specified in the TiddlyWikiFolder.The next argument is the optional path to the TiddlyWikiFolder to be loaded. If not present, then the current directory is used.The commands and their individual arguments follow, each command being identified by the prefix --.tiddlywiki [+<pluginname> | ++<pluginpath>] [<wikipath>] [--<command> [<arg>[,<arg>]]]For example:tiddlywiki --version tiddlywiki +plugins/tiddlywiki/filesystem +plugins/tiddlywiki/tiddlyweb mywiki --listen tiddlywiki ++./mygreatplugin mywiki --listen New in: 5.1.18 Commands such as the ListenCommand that support large numbers of parameters can use NamedCommandParameters to make things less unwieldy. For example:tiddlywiki wikipath --listen username=jeremy port=8090See Commands for a full listing of the available commands. Upgrading TiddlyWiki on Node.jsIf you've installed TiddlyWiki on Node.js on the usual way, when a new version is released you can upgrade it with this command:npm update -g tiddlywikiOn Mac or Linux you'll need to add sudo like this:sudo npm update -g tiddlywikiAlso seeNamedCommandParametersTiddlyWikiFoldersMultiTiddlerFileSyntaxMultiTiddlerFilesTiddlerFilesGenerating Static Sites with TiddlyWikiHow to build a TiddlyWiki5 from individual tiddlersUsing TiddlyWiki for GitHub project documentationUsing a custom path prefix with the client-server editionBuilding TiddlyWikiClassicCustomising Tiddler File NamingEnvironment Variables on Node.jsInstalling TiddlyWiki Prerelease on Node.jsInstalling custom plugins on Node.jsScripts for TiddlyWiki on Node.jsNode.js on TermuxWorking with the TiddlyWiki5 repositorytiddlywiki.files Filestiddlywiki.info FilesInstalling a plugin from the plugin libraryInternet Information ServicesThis readme file was automatically generated by TiddlyWiki
