Subject: Re: [Orgmode] Feature request: IDs on anything
Date: Thu, 01 Dec 2011 14:48:53 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20111201134853.77799.qmail@rage.so36.net> (raw)

Apparently my post wasn't connected to the original thread, so here it is - 

Samuel, may be i will start implementing something like that locally, on my 
computer. Org already can substitute a spreadsheet or a plain-text data 
storage with tables, a wiki with external and internal links etc, but it 
still can't be a full-pledged key-value store (which can be used as 
semantic NoSQL database). 

So i would start implementing maps (dicts, key-value stores) upon org-mode. 
I want to do it incrementally, adding one small feature at a time. I want 
to implement the following features: 

 - Automatically assign unique IDs to all headlines in buffer/region/subtree
 - Nested properties (properties are maps basically) - does that require 
nested drawers?
 - Property :LINKS: and commands to navigate across headlines linked to each 
 - Previous property does not set the nature of a link (parent, child, 
prerequisite, reference), implement :LINK-TYPE: or something like that
 - Previous task allows to export to RDF, because now any relationship of 
headlines can be seen as triple headline1 - type-of-link - headline2 

These additions do not require any new syntax, they build upon good old 
properties. After that id-markers would be a magnificent generalization. 

Also, i do not promise i will do this anytime soon, i'm no expert in Emacs 

Any thoughts welcome :)
