TiddlyWiki content is divided into a series of components called tiddlers. Each tiddler is stored inside an HTML division that contains the source text and meta data in wiki markup. For example, the following could be the HTML source code for the beginning of this section written as a tiddler:
<div title="Tiddlers" modifier="John Smith" created="200811132220" modified="200811132225" changecount="3" tags="wikipedia section example code"> <pre>TiddlyWiki content is divided into a ...
File saving 
A TiddlyWiki opened from a file URI may save changes made back to the original file using one of the following techniques:
- formerly the Mozilla File I/O  under the control of the UniversalXPConnect per-file preferences  for Mozilla Firefox. That functionality was removed from firefox, and is now replaced with a plugin called TiddlyFox.
- the Microsoft ActiveX FileSystemObject  for Internet Explorer
- TiddlySaver Java applet to extend Safari, Opera, Chrome/Chromium, and other browsers. Requires the Java runtime.
Although there are many TiddlyWiki documents on the Web, the majority of TiddlyWikis reside on personal computers and are exchanged on thumb drives and over email, in a manner similar to word processing documents and spreadsheets. It has been suggested that, as a single HTML file, TiddlyWiki is useful in corporate environments where red tape or IT resources might prevent the use of a wiki that requires a more complicated installation.
- The first version of TiddlyWiki was released by Jeremy Ruston in September 2004.
- BT Group bought Osmosoft in 2007 appointing Ruston as BT's "Head of Open Source Innovation".
- TiddlyWiki was selected as one of the Top 100 Tools for 2007 and 2008 by the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies.
- In November 2011, Jeremy Ruston announced his departure from Osmosoft and commitment to continue development on TiddlyWiki. He is currently building a new TiddlyWiki called TiddlyWiki 5 from the ground up based on lessons learned from the first versions. This will hopefully be released sometime in the middle of 2013.
