I'll start this question with example of the problem I'd like to solve.

I like to tag my apps by category: productivity, development, media, etc. I like to tag my movies by genre: action, drama, porn, comedy, etc.
I like to tag my personal documents by some other criteria: bills, medical, auto-related, etc.

All these tags end up in a big messy list. So when I go to tag another app, I have to scan this list of items irrelevant to current context. Applying "comedy" to apps is invalid action and, in perfect universe, would not be available.

Is there a way to somehow define contexts where certain tags become available while the rest of them disappear? Is there a way to organize the tags other than them all being in on big stupid system-wide global list?

    To follow up, it seems that Ironic's Leap product addresses this. It displays only tags present in current directory and its children. I was too confused by the rest of Leap's UI to actually propose it as the answer to the question. What a mess that UI.

  • I agree that Leap by Ironic Software is a good solution.
