TagSpaces Short Introduction

What is TagSpaces ?

TagSpaces is an app which can be used for collecting, browsing and organizing of files and folders. It is running on Windows, macOS, Linux and Android. The Lite version of the app is completely free and open source, published under the AGPL license. It features a modern intuitive user interfaces build on top web technologies. Key use cases of our software are:

Create & Collect

Create & Collect

With the TagSpaces Web Clipper you can collect web pages, bookmarks, geo-coordinates or screenshot from the Web. With the build-in advanced WYSIWYG Markdown editor you can create notes which 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 description and geo-tag to files and folders.

Search & Find - Be productive

Search & Find - Be productive

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

Why TagSpaces?

No Login ➜ No Backend ➜ No tracking

Privacy by design

Privacy by design

Keep full control of your data! Since the app does not needs Internet or online registration to run, your files never leaves your computer and you can access them anytime. Our apps do not collect any user data or track the user's behaviour. Your files safely stay with you, and always will.

Just files - No vendor locking

Just files - No vendor locking

TagSpaces uses only human-readable text files to persist all the meta information such as tags, descriptions and colors. Since we do have a database or a software back-end, there is no vendor locking and you can easily access your information even without our app.

Local-first, offline-first

Local-first, offline-first

Our desktop application is running completely offline on your computer or smartphone and does not require Internet connection. It is up to you to decide if and with which tools (e.g. Nextcloud, Dropbox, Syncthing) you can sync your annotated files across different computers.

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 does the visual search an easy step.
  • 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.

  • You can create and edit notes in WYSIWYG text editors.
  • Markdown, HTML and plain text are the available formats for the notes.
  • Common blocks such as lists, headers, tables and embedded images can be used
  • Our new Markdown editor supports even LaTeX math equations and source code snippets.
  • You can create To-Do lists and organize them in a kind of offline personal wiki for tracking your projects, ideas or memories.

  • Listen to your music and play videos

Managing S3 buckets in TagSpaces

Connect S3 object storages to manage the files there

In TagSpaces Pro you can connect AWS S3 compatible object stores (buckets) as locations and then you can:
  • 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 or MinIO as back-end.
  • MinIO is explicitly supported, allowing you to self-host S3 compatible buckets on NAS systems and manage them.

Geo-tag files and annotate maps by placing files on them

TagSpaces Pro has a build-in perspective, which allows you to show geo-tagged files and folders on a digital map. So you can:
  • Place any file or folder on a map
  • Annotate maps with files
  • Save privately favorite places
  • Plan or document trips and places to visit
  • Extract geo coordinates from photos with the build-in IPTC/EXIF support, so you can show them on a map

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.
