Creating a personal / knowledgebase is probably the most useful things I have ever done for myself... I collect absolutely everything I learn, write myself tutorials, make notes, record ideas.. and I use these every single day. I started with plain files and have used a variety of platforms. If you have stuff to remember, you gotta make one for yourself. I currently use and I love it

@cb I wrote my own wiki engine for that years ago, haha. Still use it of course, it's super handy.

@cb TiddlyWiki became so much more cumbersome to use when Firefox changed its extension interface. 😕

@clacke I’ve been using the node.js server, so tiddlywiki runs on a server and it saves automatically- no downloading needed. It’s pretty easy and works just like any other thingy

@cb How well does TiddlyWiki scale? Any performance problems / lag with a huge amount of content?

@btcprox I have about 4.4k tiddlers, and using “lazy-loading” on the server, the whole thing loads in about 3 seconds (around 3mb download to my browser). Opening tiddlers is pretty much instantaneous. Here is the key to making it fast: tiddlywiki.com/static/LazyLoad

@cb I use awkiawki, this is a very lightweight wiki that performs well, even on a Beagle Bone Black or a Raspberry Pi B :)

@cb I do the same, except in the form of a blog. My personal blog is a collection of notes and things I learn, so that I can reference it in the future if I ever encounter a similar problem.
