This project lets you tag anything from the commandline. The
provides a consistent way to add, remove and modify tags for tagged
items. The goal is to make tagging dead simple and usable by other commandline apps.
In making tags a first class nix citizen, perhaps they will see the light of day.
Let's start with tagging animals:
$ tag add horse -t fast,strong $ tag add cat -t fast,independent $ tag add dog -t loving $ tag list fast horse cat
Tired of animals, let's tag cities. To avoid interfering with the animals list, we'll use a cities model:
$ tag add nyc -t fast fun -m cities $ tag add boston -t educated,clean -m cities $ tag add paris -t awesome,delicious $ tag list fast -m cities nyc # to avoid typing '-m cities' for every command $ export TAG_MODEL=cities
Since models are isolated from one another, third party commandline apps can use tag for their own private tagging purposes.
As I wanted to tag my vim knowledge on the commandline, I found its tagging features to greatly exceed that project's scope.
- Several more tag actions
- Description and time fields
- Make storage agnostic
- Explain how to integrate with other commandline apps
