comment Adding tags to files in OS X: How to use, where are tags stored, and will they work on a network?
Please see chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/23022103#23022103 and nearby; EA-based tagging is not limited to HFS Plus, and so on. The multiplicity/variety of questions in apple.stackexchange.com/q/46614/8546 above, plus the tagging-related changes in OS X 10.9 and beyond, plus the bugs that affect tagging in some environments, and more, make it potentially difficult to arrive at a single, comprehensive answer here …

comment List all tags in Terminal in Mavericks?
No mention of OpenMeta in the opening question, but it's worth noting that the current version of tag does not list OpenMeta tags on Mavericks. github.com/jdberry/tag/issues/17 is 'Add limited support for OpenMeta'.

A down vote from me because the modern approach to tagging uses extended attributes (EAs). The list of seven applications, linked from this answer, mentions OpenMeta; OpenMeta uses EAs.

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.
