I am considering if this should be a feature or if I should use another construct.

I want to execute a callback when the value of a cell changes. I may implement something this weekend, but put it out here to spark discussion.

I am thinking maybe a callback arg to the filter method?

Is there an object that currently holds the set of tags defined?

I've been thinking for a while of adding a hooks system for callbacks.

Similar to this:

I think that would work. I have determined for this project I cannot use tablib. Too big to fit into memory. The file I am iterating over (not taking it into memory at once) is 852k lines with 3 pieces of data on each line.

I'd love to hear what project you end up using instead.

Oh I just used stlib and processed one line at a time.

This project is in a bit of a crisis state — it's really useful, and I use regularly. However, I wrote it several years ago and haven't touched it since. In order to get the project into a stable state I'm closing all issues and pull requests to get a "fresh slate"

Don't take this as aggressive — it's just necessary for the project to make any progress any time soon (it's pretty clear the project is effectively unmaintained at the moment). Great things to come! Please watch the GitHub logs and feel free to re-open this discussion soon. I just need to really it into a good state first.
