Import tags from markdown files

#1

Is it possible to import tags from a .md file? As a test I tried a markdown export from Joplin and it doesn’t appear to write any tags to the output, and re-importing that file indeed has no tags attached.

There’s no concept of tags in Markdown so indeed it neither export nor import them. If you want to export your complete data you can use the JEX or RAW format.

Right I was more thinking of how Joplin supports checkboxes though some custom markdown processing and supports “titles” by reading the first line of a markdown file etc.

Basically I’m trying to export from DS Note and import to Joplin, since there doesn’t appear to be a direct importer I need to go through this dsnote-to-markdown script first. So I can get the tags into the markdown file, I’m just not sure how to get them into Joplin.

Honestly it isn’t a huge issue, I use search 100x more than I use tags…just curious if there was a method/workaround. Thanks!
