The third and final "feature preview" release is available! Version 0.1.3
contains all the features I'm planning on including in the version 1
release. This version should contain no bugs or unexpected behaviors. STILL
WAIT to use it in a permanent installation, I'm tidying up internal naming
and how I'm saving some of the temporary state associated with boards and I
won't be providing an upgrade path from version 0 to version 1.
New features and significant changes include:
- The "Search Filter" list. when a filter is typed into this control, a
special list appears on the side which contains results from tiddlers in
the wiki that are outside the board. This is very handy way to import
tiddlers onto the board, or maybe even to pop up a temporary board just to
quickly sort a bunch of tiddlers into tags, then delete the board if you
don't need it.
- "New Card" now generates titles using the shortid plugin, which makes
a string of letters and numbers that is URL friendly and cryptographically
guaranteed to be unique. The old way just used a timestamp, which is not
good for sharing with others and redundant with the "created" field.
- Improved "boardHeight" and "listWidth" controls, including the ability
to snap to a number of lists visible that will change with the size of your
window, and the ability to set the height to 100% to fit perfectly when
using "Open in a New Window".
- Board title shows up in the separated windows.
- More powerful user filter for cards on the board. The user filter is
now appended to the end of the filter that generates the content of each
list, so you can type any number of runs which should always start with the
"+" or "-" modifiers.
- Tid download buttons were making bad files that couldn't be imported,
they are now fixed.
There will still be some cosmetic changes, such as a restyle to make a much
more thin control banner, and I'll be posting a version 0.2.0 as a release
candidate and asking for code review soon.
I've been thinking about names, and right now I think I'm going to call the
plugin "Dropboard". It's still a very utilitarian name, but I think that's
ok because it will most often be seen next to "TiddlyWiki" and it won't
compete for attention, while still being fairly descriptive about what it

To anyone still following,
A new version is online at the same link
I've worked out a number of critical bugs, you should no longer see cards
landing in places different from where they were dropped. All the features
visible in the control banner are fully functional, plus a few more
- Collapsible lists! The button on the right hand side of the list
title will collapse your list to a thin view so that the cards do not
display, but you can still drag cards into that list. One use might be for
a "Done" list that over time could get very long. Collapsing the list will
reduce lag in the interface and keep distractions away.
- A filter field for the user to type any TW filter that hides any
card that matches, so you can focus in on only what you want to see.
- Ability to hide the normal "text" field on cards, so that you can
use BLC even when content is large. You can use the BLC "shorttext" field
for a summary paragraph containing only plain text, or only see the title
of the card. Cards with hidden text fields show an attachment icon at the
- Ability to hide display of image tiddlers.
- Options for the total board height and list width, including an
option to limit list width to a maximum value.
- Ability to drag tiddlers between card and list positions. Try making
several lists with some cards inside, then drag them all into a "list of
lists" to stow them out of the way as cards, but keep them easily
accessible to move back into list position.
Remember, BLC is still in beta. Don't use it in a permanent installation
YET. I will soon be requesting code review over in the dev group, and will
let everyone know when it hits version 1.
Thanks to everyone for responding with your encouragement and suggestions,
keep it coming and let me know about any bugs or issues you find when
One last thing! I think the name "BLC" is a little boring. Do you all have
any better ideas of what we could call this thing? Please share!

Trello style cards and lists are very important to my methods, but I
can't stand not owning my own data. So when I discovered how fantastically
hackable TiddlyWiki is, I made this! It uses normal TW tags and list fields
and if you already have those relationships established, you just need to
transclude the template into your text and it will show you your existing
tiddlers in board, list, card style.
WARNING: This is still in quite early development and is very much not
stable. I'm partway through a refactor of the macros I'm using for listops
and they have some bugs.
Still, it's starting to become something, so I'm sharing it now hoping
for some feedback from you more experienced users. I'd welcome issues on
the GitHub page, or any sort of suggestions here on the forum.
Thanks to all the people who made this awesome little tool!
