Summary help replacing me
tmsu allows to tag files and folders and to categorise these by a label structure rather than a hierarchical file system structure.

tmsu is a tool for tagging your files. It provides a simple command-line tool for applying tags and a virtual file-system so that you can get a tagged based view of your files from within any other program.

Installation

tmsu can be installed with the tmsuAUR or tmsu-binAUR packages.

Quick tour

The tmsu website provides an excellent short quick tour on the basic usage.

Obstacles

tmsu creates symlinks between files, folders and the related tags. That is, it cannot handle file deletions and moves very well although there is a 'repair' command that will detect file moves and renames. It also updates fingerprints for modified files. There is no automatic directory watcher and it is not planned to add this facility as it would not work across all file system types.
