Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to add a button/command to restart the
node.js instance for TiddlyWiki. I have been adding new .tids to my
tiddlers folder and they are not being synced until node.js instance is
stop/started.

Primarily, I store my `tiddlers` folder inside of a Shared Dropbox folder
and I have two computers running Dropbox and have node.js running
`tiddlywiki` pointed at the same tiddler folder. I have noticed this seems
to work fine but updates to .tid files do not get acknowledged until the
node `tiddlywiki` is rebooted.

A 'full refresh' via the Tools menu does not seem to pick up any new files.

I also am curious of this type of refresh in the case where I'd like to add
new .tid files from another application.

Best,

Rob

Hi Rob
I have noticed this seems to work fine but updates to .tid files do not
get acknowledged until the node `tiddlywiki` is rebooted.

That's right: TiddlyWiki doesn't dynamically monitor the file system to
pick up changes made by outside agencies. Changes won't be picked up until
the server is restarted. We do plan to fix this.

One workaround in the meantime is to use the HTTP API to create tiddlers;
they will appear with immediate effect.

Best wishes

Jeremy.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks very much for taking the time to respond.

That's great to hear that is something on the roadmap to be added. I'll
look forward to it and investigate in the interim how to use the HTTP API
to fit my workflow.

Best,

Rob
