TaskPaper is great; I just have a basic feature request.
A feature request to add # hashtags as a filter group option.
I usually use @ for people and # for groups.
It would make TaskPaper more powerful and maintain simplicity to allow people to assign additional filter groups beyond the current @ sign. An additional (future) extension could be a hook for certain filter groups. For instance, @ can perhaps integrate with an external API.
To this point I haven’t implement it because I don’t think the added complexity (adding to file format that lots of other apps are using) is worth the benefits.
If I did implement it I think it the standard interpretation would be to map people to
@ and tags to
#. Unfortunately that would somewhat break all existing files which use
@ for tags. And I think the number of people tagging people is actually pretty small right now. So big change for limited benefit.
Long term if I added some integration with address books (or something like that) so that I could add extra value by distinguishing people from tags … then I might head in this direction. But unlikely until then.
