Subject: Re: [Orgmode] Feature request: IDs on anything
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2011 00:09:51 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20111127230951.35547.qmail@rage.so36.net> (raw)

I really love this idea of ID markers. It would open so many opportunities 
for semantic extensions of org-mode and not only. Using ID markers we can 
make a associative array (map, dict, key-value store) out of anything. 
Meaningful task planning, project management, knowledge and information 
management could be made out of that. Every ID marker will effectively 
become a graph vertice. 

As a variant, i would propose the Clojure syntax for maps: 

{"B7423F4D-2E8A-471B-8810-C40F074717E9" {:label "foo" :export-label "bar"}} 

Or something like that. The nested maps are like in NoSQL DBs (ex: 
CouchDB), where you have structure like {:database1 {:document1 {:key1 
value1 :key2 { ... } ... } ... } ... } 

However i found that curly braces are used in many occasions in org-mode: 
tags mutual exclusion, column attribute summary-type, capture templates - 
template expansion, tag regular expressions, #+caption: [1]{2}, macro 
replacement, embedded latex, source code. 

So if this syntax is unacceptable, $[] is fine too.
