Tagging in Krita

Hi KDE folks,

        I am so glad to announce that Resource management part of my project is completed 🙂 and it is successfully merged into the main branch. I started working on the tagging functionality and UI part. In this week, I created a post with my ideas of tagging and posted it in the krita’s mailing list.

Some of the main points in tagging implementation are

  • QMultiHash Object – it is the one which we are using for storing tags for the resources. These will help for storing multi values i.e. many tags for the same resource. The searching functionality is also done faster by using this one.
  • UI Part – It is still under discussion. We are observing the tagging system in various applications, to find a good and better one. We are planning to implement two separate UI’s. One for searching tags and other for adding/removing tags.

            Here, I’m again mentioning the point why we are not using nepomuk because we want a tagging system which is compatible with the GIMP Tagging system. We need compatibility, so that we can exchange resources and tags easily.

    You are absolutely right, that compatible with the GIMP Tagging system is very important. Go for it.
