Choose from a list of recent tags and change one to something new


#1

This is adapted from scripts by @mattmaybe and by @nahumck. The idea is to get a list of current tags, select one, and then pick something to replace it with. It pulls from recent tags and prompts you to select one, then to type a replacement.

One thing I wish it did was only pull from Current/Active tags but I could not figure out how to do that (assuming it’s possible). I assume operator error, so if you know how, please feel free to share. And of course, any general improvements I would like to see too.

var lists = Draft.recentTags();

var p = Prompt.create();
p.title = "Tag you want to change"

for (i = 0; i < lists.length; i++) {
  p.addButton(lists[i]);
}

var con = p.show();

if (con) {
  var button = p.buttonPressed;
} else {
  context.cancel();
}

const chosen = button;

var p = Prompt.create();
p.title = "Enter Tags";
p.message = "Tag to replace: " + chosen;
var oldTag = chosen;
p.addTextField("newTag","New Tag","");
p.addButton("Go");
var con = p.show();

var oldTag = chosen;
var newTag = p.fieldValues["newTag"];

if (con) {
  var items = Draft.query("", "all", [oldTag])
  for (var item of items) {
    item.removeTag(oldTag);
    item.addTag(newTag);
    item.update();  
  }
}
else {
  context.cancel
}

Hi, thanks for the mention. I constantly trying out new script and learning ever more. If you are looking for a script that gets the current tags from the draft. Allows to add custom tags and select from recent. I recently modified one from @agiletortoise to do this exact thing.
