N.B: On systems like TiddlySpace where there is a system wide index, such a query is likely to be more efficient as a search but the results will be slightly different.
Filters were originally designed for use in recipe. Using them with URIs (as above) was a quickly obvious second use. Their goal in recipes is to allow customizable selection of content from multiple places to create a useful aggregate.
Here's a hypothetical recipe which gathers up content from various places:
- The default plugins etc that make TiddlyWeb go, no filter required
- tiddlers for a theme, minus the ColorPalette, so the default is used
- tiddlers tagged published from the blog bag
- ten most recently modified tiddlers from the tweets bag
- some local customizations that come last to make sure they clobber other things
