Me: Computer, please install this program
Computer: that program is dangerous
Me: why is it dangerous? It's a text editor.
Computer: Exactly! It can write FILES! To your HARD DRIVE! Do you understand how INSANELY DANGEROUS that is? Files! Just anywhere! Brrrrr. Don't thank me, I'm just doing my job. Keeping you safe.
Me: download it anyway, please. I want to edit files.
Computer: I'm reporting you for this. You are a menace to society. Files. For shame.
@natecull They also assume all users need to be protected from themselves and should only install stuff from their curated app store.
i don't know how easy it is to do on windows but....
personally i always just run #tiddlywiki on nodejs now
(which basically treats the tiddlywiki as a web interface and manages the files 'server side')
in practice it functions nearly the same, the only part of the tiddlywiki that isn't customisable via its own data files is boot.js
