TagSpaces

3.2.5
11 October 2019

Manage and organize the files on your local drive.

Overview

TagSpaces is an open and extensible platform for personal data management. With TagSpaces you can manage and organize the files on your local drive.

Cross-platform tagging and annotation for every file and folder
  • Organize your photos, ebooks, music, recipes or invoices in the same way on almost every operating system. We currently support Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Android.
  • In contrary to the most file tagging applications, TagSpaces does not persists the tags in a centralized way. As a consequence, the added meta information is not vendor locked. The absence of a database, makes syncing of it easy across different devices with services like Dropbox or Nextcloud.
  • TagSpaces features basic file management operations, so it can be used as simple file manager supporting tagging of files and folders.
  • With the help of tags you can do research better or you can manage your personal projects and todo lists.

The software appears well written and looks nice. However the way that it changes the filename to include the tags is a dealbreaker for me. They should embed the tags in metadata.

They do give you the option to use a sidecar file instead of modifying the filename but there are drawbacks: "If you move or rename tagged files in TagSpaces it will take care of the sidecar file, which will also renamed or moved in the appropriate folder. But if you move or rename this file in an external file manager, you have to move or rename the sidecar files by hand. The same hold true for the deleting a file from an external application. It will not automatically delete the sidecar file in the .ts folder. These drawbacks makes the tagging with sidecars less robust and future proof."

This is interesting. The "tag" is saved in the filename, it appends [tag1][tag2]... to the file name. I certainly don't want that all over my hard-drive, but maybe for some discrete purposes it would be useful. I'd like to see a better description of what it does and how, than I have found so far. I'm so desperate for effective file-tagging (10.6) that I'll try anything :-/ .

Spence, Yep! is my favorite app for tagging, but there are many others. Punakea, for instance, is quite good and it may now be free (it is open source now). Another good option is Path Finder. This app can replace Finder, making it much easier to sort through tagged files without having to open another app. It might help if you could explain what you want to the app to do.

Thanks for posting this info, Spence!
That’s some important detail missing in the description.
