ccTiddly currently uses a modified version of the basic TiddlyWiki HTML code. This means that whenever there's an update to the core code, we have to manually update ccTiddly to the new version (which involves some fiddly manual steps).
The goal is to make it so that ccTiddly uses a clean, unadorned copy of empty.html from tiddlywiki.com, and to have it automatically splice in the extra bits and pieces that are needed by ccTiddly.
These extra bits and pieces are a bunch of plugins and some "stock" tiddlers that use macros from those plugins to expose them to the user.
If, like me, you get confused about the difference between a plugin and a macro, remember that a plugin is just a tiddler tagged "systemConfig", a plugin can can contain many different macros (which use config.macros)
For instance, there is a plugin called "CreateWorkspacePlugin" that provides the <
Here's the complete list:
This macro allows the user to create a new ccTiddly workspace by specifying a name, and the permissions for both anonymous and registered users. We'll make the macro available to users via the backstage area, since this isn't a particularly common operation.
This plug in will allow users to manage permissions on a workspace which already exists (assuming they have the correct permission). Going forward this will probably include the master workspace management which will then be moved to its own plug in.
This tiddler will be used to change your email address, password and user specific tiddlers.
This macro displays the login UI. When not logged in it will allow the users to login using OpenID, LDAP or the internal user database. When logged in the user will be informed who they are logged in as and be given the option to log out.
