Discussion:
[tw] [TW5] Preview of new export button

I've started work on implementing a new export button, and thought it was
worth getting some feedback before the release of 5.1.5.

[image: Inline image 1]

You can try out the new feature at:

http://tiddlywiki.com/prerelease/

The export button appears as both a page control toolbar button to export
all tiddlers and as a tiddler toolbar button to export an individual
tiddler. For ease of testing the export button is shown by default in the
prerelease, but it will be hidden by default in 5.1.5. The export button
also appears in the results of the advanced search "filter" tab, allowing
you to export matching tiddlers in a single operation.

The button initially supports exporting as static HTML, CSV, JSON or `.tid`
file.

Issues I've found with it so far:

* OS X Numbers refuses to open CSV files that have been generated in
Chrome, because it thinks they’ve been downloaded from the Internet.
Firefox works OK
* The export button won’t work within the tiddler info panel, or from the
*more* popup (this is because TW5 doesn’t currently support nested popups)

There are more details in the commit:

https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5/commit/6fc5c70ace43219710983f6d9640f4b01d620908

I'd be interested to learn how you get on using exported CSV files in other
apps, and any suggestions or improvements.

Best wishes

Jeremy

Looks good.
It seems to work for me. ... some more testing needed :)

Yay!

In exporting to CSV, an looking at tiddler "Adding a Twitter Follow button"
I notice the code samples are not transferred but in it's place there's an
empty frame (the iframe?) showing. (You'll find it immediately in the CSV
if you scroll down.)
Maybe this is standard behaviour, I have no idea.

I can't reproduce that issue. I've just exported "Adding a Twitter Follow
button" to CSV both as a single file and via exporting the all tiddlers. In
both cases, the content in the CSV file matches the content I see in edit
mode. Are you reviewing the CSV file in a text editor, or looking at what's
displayed in a spreadsheet app?

Ah, embarassing; Firefox is set up, probably by me, to ask if I wish to
open the file or save it. I simply opened it, thus in Firefox, which showed
the strange layut. My bad.

However, another potential issue; Opening the csv in LibreOffice Calc warns
that the maximum number of characters per cell is exceeded for csv. Looking
at the result I can't really tell, it appears ok. I have not investigated
closer, maybe it's some setting or possibly a LibreOffice limitation. But
can I ask which are the names of some of the largest tiddlers that should
appear there and I'll try to see of they appear ok or not.

It seems to be 64kByte see: http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/8980
So there shouldn't be a problem, except for the /all template tiddlers.

I think there's some confusion with the download button. Maybe *it* should
have the pop up with the options and the node version have a different
mechanism to show that saving has occurred

Hi Alex
Post by Alex Hough
I think there's some confusion with the download button.
The way that both the "save" and "export" buttons have icons that look like
boxes containing an arrow is problematic.

It's hard to avoid an icon along these lines for "export" because it's
pretty standard. But maybe we could explore alternatives for the "save"
icon. Originally, the "save" icon was designed to look like a "download"
icon because, of course, some of the time that's what it does.
Post by Alex Hough
Maybe *it* should have the pop up with the options and the node version
have a different mechanism to show that saving has occurred
I'm not sure what you mean? If the "save" icon bought up a dropdown then
presumably that would mean it would take two clicks to save, which doesn't
seem desirable.

Best wishes

Jeremy,

What I am trying to say is that under node.js the saving is not the same as
downloading. The existing download seems to belong its the other
new download buttons and a save button belongs to a different class - save
to node.

When running the client-server configuration under Node.js the "save
changes" button downloads a snapshot of the current wiki, which is close to
what it does in the standalone configuration.

Hi Jeremy,

Looks great to me.

The only thing I saw was when exporting as 'Plain text.tid tiddler file'
only "A Thesis Notebook" by Alberto Molina was exported. I can imagine that
only 1 tiddler will be exported (if that is what was intended) but how can
you export a certain tiddler instead of just the first one in the list?
Minor issue: the tooltip of the export icon shows 'Export all tiddlers'
what is not true in the case of 'Plain text.tid tiddler file'.

Tested with Windows 7 + Firefox 33.1

Cheers,

Ton

I've started work on implementing a new export button, and thought it was
worth getting some feedback before the release of 5.1.5.
[image: Inline image 1]
http://tiddlywiki.com/prerelease/
The export button appears as both a page control toolbar button to export
all tiddlers and as a tiddler toolbar button to export an individual
tiddler. For ease of testing the export button is shown by default in the
prerelease, but it will be hidden by default in 5.1.5. The export button
also appears in the results of the advanced search "filter" tab, allowing
you to export matching tiddlers in a single operation.
The button initially supports exporting as static HTML, CSV, JSON or
`.tid` file.
* OS X Numbers refuses to open CSV files that have been generated in
Chrome, because it thinks they’ve been downloaded from the Internet.
Firefox works OK
* The export button won’t work within the tiddler info panel, or from the
*more* popup (this is because TW5 doesn’t currently support nested popups)
https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5/commit/6fc5c70ace43219710983f6d9640f4b01d620908
I'd be interested to learn how you get on using exported CSV files in
other apps, and any suggestions or improvements.

The .tid file format can only contain a single tiddler. So when you use the
page export button you end up with a .tid file containing just the first
tiddler.

To export a specific tiddler, just navigate to that tiddler and then use
the tiddler export button in the tiddler toolbar button.

Minor issue: the tooltip of the export icon shows 'Export all tiddlers'
Post by Ton Gerner
what is not true in the case of 'Plain text.tid tiddler file'.
Yes, that's frustrating but I'm not sure what we can do about it. Maybe we
could disable the .tid export format when multiple tiddlers are being
exported, so it would only appear on the tiddler export dropdown.

Best wishes

To export a specific tiddler, just navigate to that tiddler and then use
the tiddler export button in the tiddler toolbar button.
Minor issue: the tooltip of the export icon shows 'Export all tiddlers'

what is not true in the case of 'Plain text.tid tiddler file'.
Yes, that's frustrating but I'm not sure what we can do about it. Maybe we
could disable the .tid export format when multiple tiddlers are being
exported, so it would only appear on the tiddler export dropdown.
I forgot there was an export button (with the right tooltip and meaning -
just one tiddler) in the Viewtoolbar.
Maybe better to leave out 'Plain text.tid tiddler file' from the dropdown
menu of the Pagecontrol Export button?

Cheers,

Ton

I've started work on implementing a new export button, and thought it
was worth getting some feedback before the release of 5.1.5.
[image: Inline image 1]
http://tiddlywiki.com/prerelease/
The export button appears as both a page control toolbar button to
export all tiddlers and as a tiddler toolbar button to export an individual
tiddler. For ease of testing the export button is shown by default in the
prerelease, but it will be hidden by default in 5.1.5. The export button
also appears in the results of the advanced search "filter" tab, allowing
you to export matching tiddlers in a single operation.
The button initially supports exporting as static HTML, CSV, JSON or
`.tid` file.
* OS X Numbers refuses to open CSV files that have been generated in
Chrome, because it thinks they’ve been downloaded from the Internet.
Firefox works OK
* The export button won’t work within the tiddler info panel, or from
the *more* popup (this is because TW5 doesn’t currently support nested
popups)
https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5/commit/
6fc5c70ace43219710983f6d9640f4b01d620908
I'd be interested to learn how you get on using exported CSV files in
other apps, and any suggestions or improvements.
Best wishes

Probably a very naïve question, but is there a browser constraint for not
having a folder filled with the selected tiddlers in this case?

The standard browser download saver can only save a single file at once. We
could save multiple files in TiddlyFox or TiddlyDesktop.

I am interested in the possibility of constructing an uncompressed ZIP file
containing all the files and downloading the ZIP file instead. It turns out
that the ZIP file format allows for uncompressed files, and it's a fairly
easy format to write given the good support we've got for binary data in JS.

Best wishes

Jeremy.

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for the explanation. Actually, for my needs (select a bunch of
tiddlers to bring them from one Node.js-served TiddlyWiki to another one,
the single HTML file would make a good alternative to the uncompressed zip
:-)

Thanks again,
Xavier.

Great news. Can't wait to try out the new export feature!

For your info, I will probably end up using the export feature as a backup
and as a means to share my tiddlers with non-TiddlyWiki users.

Since export to tid files is already posible, and tiddlyfox and
tiddlydesktop allows you to access the filesystem, will be some kind of
sync-adaptor to the local filesystem like node does?

Yes, one of the possibilities is to have the filesystemadaptor running in
TiddlyFox/TiddlyDesktop. But that's a different concern than enabling
export of multiple files; with export there's no synchronisation.

Hi Jeremy,

not sure if this was asked before, but could you name the exported tiddler
according to the tiddlersname (minus slashes and all these symbols that
would cause conflicts with the os pathname).

Felix

Hmm, it should be possible because at one point the download is named
"tiddler.tid".

https:

reads the filename from a field called filename...

Good idea, I've made the necessary changes here:

https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5/commit/e6043b07b90e5da9dac07634326cda9498fb106d

Note that some browsers ignore the filename that TiddlyWiki specifies, and
give the downloaded file a random name. It works on Chrome and Firefox but
not Safari in my tests.

I've also uploaded a new prerelease:

http://tiddlywiki.com/prerelease

Best wishes

Jeremy.

I have the distinct feeling that you're using that for a very interesting
