Several hours into tracking down an usually (chuckle or abysmally) subtle glitch in an attempt to squash a bug in some newly coded regex routines, I've hit on a quite nifty idea...
Here's the scoop: Imagine a tag labeled 'books', yeah I know, no big deal, but there's more to it than that hear me out... Now imagine that same tag retitled 'books/fiction' & now I'm thinking about virtualized pathways for tags & the plot thickens. Lets create some more...
tags: books/fiction/the grapes of wrath tags: books/science/outline of history/my-notes tags: books/travelogue/wind sand & stars
Now, if you recall I'd noted earlier I was (yes 'was' the issue is fixed) wrestling with a regex/wildcard issue when bam! the idea came to me: paths for tags that can expand via wildcard & globbing. An example...
books, books/, books/* # all return tag-path books/ books/fiction # returns all tags within tag-path books/fiction books/*/wind sand & stars # returns the 'relative path' for wind sand & stars
Lots more wildcard patterns too... Of course there are no folders or directories, its simply a construct mapped onto the tags providing not only a method of grouping context, but a nested hierarchy or a taxonomy if you like.
Well, got to run for now.
