Some month ago I started using openmeta tags to manage my files. Is there a tool which shows all openmeta tags on my mac and the files tagged with these tags?

leap


TagLists

By Ali Rantakari

  • Free
  • Tags & Tag searches for file lists must be made manually
    • ie. doesn't list created tags, which was what you were after
      • but hey, the price is right!

Thank you. Tags was exactly what I was looking for :-) –  Kungi Sep 8 '11 at 19:51
    
A down vote from be because (unless I'm missing something), Leap does not reliably find files that have OpenMeta tags alone. That surprises me. –  Graham Perrin Jul 26 at 11:18

Nifty Box was a great free, scriptable application.

I wrote some nice AppleScripts that could go through tags and color certain files.

Can you provide any more information about the program, and perhaps a link? –  Daniel May 16 '12 at 11:25
