Maybe someone finds it useful: I've attached a view template that lists
  • Tiddlers whose title contains the title of the current tiddler
    • For example, if the title of the current tiddler is "Apple", then it will list "Red Apple", "Yellow Apple", etc.
  • Tiddlers whose text most often contains the title of the current tiddler
    • For example, if the title of the current tiddler is "Apple", then it will list "Fruit Processing" "Healthy Food", etc.
To give it a try, import it to https://tiddlywiki.com and check out the Commands tiddler, for example.

Hi bimlas,

 Very clever solution! First I thought it used some kind of fuzzy search ;-)
I think it has a great potential of use!

I add it to some of my personal TWs and will share the results with you later.



Best wishes
Mohammad

Thank you very much, bimlas

I too concur with Mohammad, very clever and handy! :-)

Your solution was tested on wikis between 800 - 4K tiddlers and saw no performance degradation from viewing the extra tiddlers.

Oft times I drag in a lot of content to 'bookmark' in TiddlyWiki but accrue semantic debt when I lag in tagging at import time.  

Between tagging, other methods like Tobias Beer's Sidebar Stories and now your useful template, this really helps make/find meaning in TiddlyWiki without manual metadata intervention.

Best,
tony

Thanks! Tony, you might also be interested in this: tiddlers are linked by a given search term.

I love this. Wondering if it can replace my current "backlinks" footer. I have switched to almost always using CamelCaseLinks rather than [[Bracket Links]] so the list of best matches is basically backlinks anyway. It does have me thinking about my use of CamelCaseLinks though, since it limits the matches somewhat. Excellent, though!
