You can download TidBits for free and run it on your own web server. TidBits has been tested extensively on Linux and Mac OS X. It also runs on Windows, and should run on any platform with a Java 5 runtime.
TidBits is a 100% Java web application that requires a relational database. Currently the requirements are as follows:
You can download TidBits from SourceForge. The binary package (named like tidbits-1.0.0.tbz2) contains the TidBits WAR along with instructions for getting your installation going for the first time. The source package (named like tidbits-1.0.0-src.tbz2) contains all of TidBits' source code.
For installation instructions look in the
README file that comes in each distribution.
Alternatively, if you just want to try out TidBits, you can download Live Demo package that requires only you have a Java 5 JDK (i.e. version 1.5) installed. The Live Demo uses an embedded database to store data, and acts as a fully-functional deployment of TidBits. Visit the Live Demo download page to download.
