Purpose

Halbreich interface.jpg

Halbreich.exe is a PC-only tool to speed up the laborious task of adding wiki-tags to articles. It was originally created for the Image Halbreich team to deal with the large numbers of uncategorized images, but can be easily customized to add wiki-tags of any kind.

Installation

Minimal

Unzip just these two files into the same folder

  • halbreich\halbreich.exe - the program itself
  • halbreich\categories.lst - the category list (you can edit this in notepad)
  • halbreich\templates.lst - the templates list (you can edit this in notepad)

Full

Unzip all files into the same folder.

  • halbreich\readme.txt - Documentation
  • halbreich\halbreich.exe - the program itself
  • halbreich\categories.lst - the category list (you can edit this in notepad)
  • halbreich\templates.lst - the templates list (you can edit this in notepad)
  • halbreich\src\halbreich.ahk - Halbreich Autohotkey source code
  • halbreich\src\halbreich.ico - icon for use with the AHK2EXE compiler

Basic Workflow

  • IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT EXPERT MODE IS, LEAVE IT OFF, NOOB!!!!
  1. Open wiki page for editing with the internal browser editor
  2. Select tags from the list (see below)
  3. Move the text cursor to where you want the tags inserted into the wiki page.
  4. Press CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste the tags.

Selecting Tags

  • You can toggle the checkboxes beside a tag to select it.
  • To search for a tag, type a portion of the tag's name in the bottom text field of Halbreich's interface. Pressing ENTER will toggle the last tag found that includes that text.
  • Deselect tags with the ESC key (Halbreich must be the foreground app)
  • note: Tags that begin with a backslash "\" will not be inserted during a tag-paste. This is intentional.

Rapid Tagging

  • Once again, it must be stressed that IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT EXPERT MODE IS, LEAVE IT OFF, NOOB!!!!
  • Rapid tagging is accomplished by turning on the EXPERT checkbox or hitting ALT+X while Halbreich is the foreground app.
  • When you hit CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste tags, it will paste the tags, then auto-TAB you to the Summary field, auto-paste the tags into that summary field, and hit ENTER to submit the changes automatically.
  • If your text cursor isn't carefully placed when you perform an expert paste, it will probably fuck things up. Because YOU fucked it up. Idiot.
  • It's there for people who have to categorize and tag shitloads of docs and images who know what they're doing. Use with caution!

Tag Files

  • On startup, Halbreich will search the directory for *.lst taglists
  • tag lists can be edited in notepad. One tag per line.
  • tag lists show up in the topmost dropdown gadget
  • you can create a default.lst file to be selected on Halbreich's startup.
