How can TagSpaces be helpful to you?

Collect ➜ Organize ➜ Find

Create & Collect

Create & Collect

With the TagSpaces Web Clipper you can collect web pages, bookmarks, geo-coordinates or screenshot from the Web. With the built-in advanced WYSIWYG Markdown editor you can create notes that can include tables, todo-lists, math formulas or diagrams.

Organize & Annotate

Organize & Annotate

TagSpaces can connect to any folder on your hard drive and provide a convenient way to browse its content. You have the ability to add labels called tags to any file or folder. On top of that in the Pro version you can add descriptions and geo-tags to files and folders.

Search & Find - Be productive

Search & Find - Be productive

Using tags along the folder hierarchy allows you to have cross references in the folders. The built-in search allows you to find files with any combination of tags. The PRO version features a full-text search on text files, which makes it a valuable substitution for Desktop search applications.

Why TagSpaces?

No Login ➜ No Backend ➜ No tracking

Privacy by design

Privacy by design

Keep complete control over your data! Our app requires no internet connection or online registration to run, so your files never leave your computer and you can access them at any time. Furthermore, our app will never collect any user data or track your behavior. Your files remain safely with you.

Just files - No vendor locking

Just files - No vendor locking

TagSpaces only stores meta information such as tags, descriptions, and colors in easily readable text files. Since we do not have a database or a software back-end, there is no vendor locking and you can easily access your data even without our app.

Always available - No Internet, no problem

Always available - No Internet, no problem

Our desktop application runs entirely on your computer or smartphone without using the Internet. It is up to you to decide which tools you can use to sync (e.g. Nextcloud, Dropbox, Syncthing) and which ones you can use to encrypt (e.g. Cryptomator) your annotated files on different devices.
Our key principle: Local-first, offline-first!

Open and Extensible

Open and Extensible

TagSpaces Lite, the core of our applications, is open source and released under the AGPL license. Built using modern web technologies, this application is easily extensible using its plugins, referred to as extensions, most of which are released under the MIT license.

Intuitive and easy to use

Intuitive and easy to use

TagSpaces is designed to be easy to install and use. It offers a consistent user experience for organizing and annotating files across Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android platforms.

Add tags and description to files and folders

  • Organize your photos, documents, music, recipes or invoices with tags in the same way on all platforms.
  • You can assign custom color to every folder and tag, which makes the visual search easy.
  • You can add a custom thumbnail and text description to every file or folder.
  • In contrary to the most file tagging applications, TagSpaces does not persist the tags in a centralized way. As a consequence, the added meta information is not vendor locked.

Use or share your files online by putting them on a S3 compliant object storage

In TagSpaces you can connect Amazon S3 compliant object storage offered by providers such as AWS, Wasabi or MinIO. With the help of the web version you can use your files from everywhere even from your iPhone or Android mobile.
  • Browse, preview, tag and search the files located there.
  • Edit files located in the cloud without downloading and re-uploading them.
  • Upload new files to the buckets with simple drag and drop actions.
  • Create time-limited, sharable links to files on buckets.
  • Create your own Dropbox or Evernote-like services only by using AWS S3, Wasabi or MinIO as back-end.
  • MinIO is explicitly supported, allowing you to self-host S3 compatible buckets on NAS systems and manage them.

Collect content from web pages with our Web Clipper browser extension

Save web pages, text snippets, screenshot from web pages or bookmark on your local hard drive as simple files for a later offline use.
  • We offer free Chrome, Edge and Firefox browser extensions for web clipping.
  • Saving whole web pages or only part of them, allowing you to use the application similar to the many "read in later" services.
  • Take a screenshot from the visible part of the webpage or create a bookmark to it. This, together with the tagging support allows you to use TagSpaces as a full-fledged bookmark manager.
  • Using just files for storing the web pages has many advantages. The main one is that your collected content is not "taken hostage" in any online service.
