I want a windows 8 compatible program that will help me track my media collection in a way that helps me keep track of files and will support relations.
Currently, I am using Tabbles to tag files with multiple tags. This is much better than the standard the Windows file hierarchy in that I can quickly find files with multiple attributes. Where this approach fails is that to tag a file with complex attributes I would have to create very specific tags that would be used in very few other circumstances. For example, if I want to tag files with starring actors/actresses and their age during their performance I would need to create new tag for every possible value. As I approach thousands of unique tags this becomes unwieldy.
My ideal solution would
- be available on multiple operating systems
- be free (who doesn't like free?)
- be open-source
- provide a UI (or the tools to create one) for adding and searching files.
- require minimal coding from me.
- support customized attributes
Edit: I've discovered Kexi which seems to be what I want except that it no longer supports Windows. I started to use Open Office Base but I just discovered that it doesn't really support storing links to files.
