21st-March-2018: TiddlyWikiTweaks

Funny, I pretty much figured out what I'd need to make an Atom feed for a TiddlyWiki, but one roadblock would be just updating the feed's date once a new thing is published (see "Feed updation Date"). There might be some way to assign to have the parent template wait for the first sibling (a new entry) to provide the correct date, but that sounds difficult to make.


Silly me! This would be a trivial issue to overcome:

  1. shut down all TW servers
  2. use Bash to modify the date to $currentDate on all of the atom feed pages (tiddlers) that need to be generated
  3. run the generation script, starting back up the TW servers!

It's that simple! All I'd need is some additional understanding of Bash programming! 😄
