Wars of Conflicting Webs
Big problem, though: Beaker (Dat) doesn’t store differences. And TiddlyWiki is one big file. So every time you save, it keeps the old one saved and the network starts to fill with these old copies. And you can easily have a 10 meg wiki—you get a hundred days of edits under your belt and you’ve created some trouble for yourself.
I went a different way with my tiddlywiki after trying the Beaker approach because of the way it handles versioning. When I tried, my little 2mb file was using 70mb of space on the server (and I was only getting started).

like a rainbow

This is too cool…, though I had to modify the CSS for it to work for me. What I used:
.rainbow {
background-image: linear-gradient(90deg, #F79533 0%, #F37055 15%, #EF4E7B 30%, #A166AB 44%, #5073B8 58%, #1098AD 72%, #07B39B 86%, #6DBA82 100%);
background-size: cover;
-webkit-background-clip: text;
-webkit-text-fill-color: transparent;
