A Good Looking Tiddly Theme for Digital Gardens
Based on the Krystal theme
There’s been a ton of energy for digital gardens recently. First this thread blew up:
And then - Anne-Laure started blogging about TiddlyWiki:
- Getting started with TiddlyWiki: a beginner’s tutorial - Ness Labs
- How to build a digital garden with TiddlyWiki - Ness Labs
That inspired me to explore Glitch as a hosting paltform for Tiddly in my last post:
But the design of TiddlyWiki still bothered me - Anne-Laure figured out a way to make a beautiful looking static-export of her wiki at mentalnodes.com but I was hungry for a node version1 that I could run on Glitch and didn’t look terrible.
Then I found Krystal
Then someone posted a link to the Krystal theme by Roman Veselý and it’s (finally!) a nice minimal and pleasing theme for TiddlyWiki (it even looks great on mobile!):
You can play around with the theme here
Krystal on Glitch
And here’s my reference installation for getting Krystal setup on Glitch:
Huge thanks to Roman for putting this all together - all I did was stick it on Glitch.
I’m going to experiment with using this as my digital garden for a little bit and see how we go.
The primary reason for using node is so I can have a wiki I can edit on my phone ↩
