I know there are TiddlyWiki but I need one which stores HTML or even .txt files.

I want to use this Wiki like a personal blog, i want to log my life (probably cringy to you) and things I've done, programmed etc.

I want to be abled to carry this wiki on my USB so I can just plug into any computer and wiki away.

You might find something in this previous Q&A: – Linker3000 Aug 26 '11 at 18:46
tiddlywiki does store itself locally using html files, is there some feature that it is lacking? – Mokubai Aug 26 '11 at 18:50
I already did a search but didn't find anything (for me). And that was posted in 2009 so there might be new apps which I haven't been able to find for myself. :) @Mokubai Tiddlywiki is just a big mess for me, opens everything on same page and can't seem to get hang of it. I don't like the usablity of it. – orange Aug 26 '11 at 18:52

I have searched under the similar situation and tested TiddlyWiki. However, it doesn't my needs so that I develop Juli. While Juli is still evolving, I found , this also may be a good for you.

I've been looking around and I have found Wiki On A Stick which appears to be a simple downloadable browser-based Wiki that modifies it's own files.

One feature I like the look of is that it claims to support AES 256 encryption of pages so while it is stored on a memory stick your individual posts could be well protected. Potentially a plus if you are keeping personal data in there.

Zim Desktop Wiki deserves your consideration, I have used it for almost one year, and find it simple, flexible and reliable.

  1. It does store wiki notes in .txt file format.
  2. It make use of Windows/Linux directory as namespace.
  3. You can export one page or the whole wiki to static html files.
  4. It does have a Portable Version for Windows.

You may consider Fossil.

Although is is primarily a version control systems it also includes a simple Wiki. You can keep the files external as plain html files (with simple wiki-markup) or store the files within a single (data)file.

The most charming aspect: it is only a single executable of about 1 MB that includes everything you need (webserver, SQLite database, wiki-server). There is no need to install anything, just run the executable. Period.
