What tiddlyroam does

Quickly create your own personal wiki

Add fragments of thoughts and findings whenever they come to you. TiddlyRoam will link them and help you spot the patterns.

What makes tiddlyroam tick

Bi-directional links

Bi-directional links allow you to see not just all the pages that a page links to, but also all pages that link to it.

+ Graph maps

Graph maps visualise all the pages you have made and how they link together.

= Networked thought

The combination leads to what Roam calls ‘networked thought’. This is best explained by a tiddlyroam user:

"it's like having a second brain."
