Tagging rules

If you want to automatically assign a tag to new articles, this part of the configuration is for you.

What does « tagging rules » mean?

They are rules used by wallabag to automatically tag new entries. Each time a new entry is added, all the tagging rules will be used to add the tags you configured, thus saving you the trouble to manually classify your entries.

How do I use them?

Let assume you want to tag new entries as « short reading » when the reading time is inferior to 3 minutes. In that case, you should put « readingTime <= 3 » in the Rule field and « short reading » in the Tags field. Several tags can added simultaneously by separating them by a comma: « short reading, must read ». Complex rules can be written by using predefined operators: if « readingTime >= 5 AND domainName = "github.com" » then tag as « long reading, github ».

Which variables and operators can I use to write rules?

The following variables and operators can be used to create tagging rules (be careful, for some values, you need to add quotes, for example language = "en"):

title Title of the entry
url URL of the entry
isArchived Whether the entry is archived or not
isStarred Whether the entry is starred or not
