Here's the idea I thought of over lunch for a way to use tagging to
supplement the standard file storage scheme.
- When saving a file, there could be a new "tags" field, as is used
on http://del.icio.us, etc, where several tags could be entered,
possibly with auto-complete of known tags.
- For each tag, a symbolic link would be created to the file in
That would allow the "tags" to be useful to all applications.
- Using the "inotify" Linux kernel code that Beagle and Kat use,
actual locations of the saved files could be monitored, keeping
the symlinks for the tags up-to-date.
- When opening files, there could optionally be a "Tags" icon to take
you the tags folder or perhaps even a more sophicated UI for
selecting files that match multiple tags, that doesn't seem
It seems simple and useful to me.
