Running TiddlyWiki using Docker

Thanks to https://github.com/djmaze/tiddlywiki-docker it is easy to launch a TiddlyWiki as nodejs-server from a docker image. Here is my setup, which simplifies the workflow by some bash-aliases.

Setup

In ~/.bash_profile define

# /Users/MyUserName/wikipath defines the mounted wiki directory
alias starttiddly="docker run -d --name tiddlycontainer -p 127.0.0.1:10000:8080 -v /Users/MyUserName/wikipath:/var/lib/tiddlywiki mazzolino/tiddlywiki"
alias stoptiddly="docker container stop tiddlycontainer && docker container rm tiddlycontainer"

Usage

  1. Start a bash-terminal and invoke starttiddly to start the server
  2. Open your browser at http://localhost:10000 and work with tiddlywiki (the default login is user/wiki)
  3. After usage shutdown the container by invoking stoptiddly
