About these notes

Tags in knowledge systems - technical implementation notes


Depending on the markdown editor used, there are various useful approaches with tagging:

Tags can be put in the YAML header:

# If you want to use hashtags
tags: ['#tag1', '#tag2', ...]
# Obsidian and Jekyll can recognize multiple tags as
# space-separated strings
tags: tag1 tag2

This is useful when you want to process them programmatically.

Tags can also be nested. This allows to use tags implicit folder systems.
