Link Metadata

Would it be useful to allow a link to have metadata in the form of tags or perhaps other properties?

Doing so would enable the link itself to have meaning or context.

An example:

[[St Matthew Passion]] has a link to [[@Johann Sebastian Bach]] which could be annotated with #composer, perhaps like this: [[@Johann Sebastian Bach/#composer]]

Searching for #composer would now include a result of [[St Matthew Passion]] → composer → [[@Johann Sebastian Bach]], which not only shows that there is a link but also the context.

Graph databases have properties for both nodes and edges, which is what prompted me to think about this.

Agreed it would be useful! But I’m going to move this to Help. This has already been discussed and requested. Please remember to search before posting a feature request.

Also check out the community plugin Juggl which can do things like this. You might find it interesting.
