TiddlyWiki / Profile

Home Page:

TiddlyWiki is a single html file which has all the characteristics of a wiki – including all of the content, the functionality (including editing, saving, tagging and searching) and the style sheet. Because it’s a single file, it’s very portable – you can email it, put it on a web server or share it via a USB Stick.

It has very powerful plugin capabilities, so it can also be used to build new tools. You have full control over how it looks and behaves. For example,TiddlyWiki is already being used as a personal notebook,a GTD (“Getting Things Done”) productivity tool,a collaboration tool, m for building websites, for rapid prototyping and much more.

You can import and export data to and from all sorts of places (Cross-platform).
