2 Added info about existing tags

There are 1670 questions in the tag at time of writing. There was a suggestion in chat (and thereabouts) to have some subtags. This "question" is to gather together some ideas.

Two major threads suggest themselves to me:

TikZ/PGF derived packages

There are several packages (or collections of packages) that have been built on top of TikZ/PGF. I don't know them all.

TikZ/PGF common tasks

There are some tasks that crop up quite often.

  • Decorating a path
  • Manipulating a path (more low-level than decorations)
  • Nodes and shapes
  • Transformations

Again, I've certainly missed some.


As usual, tags should add information to the question and not simply add a "buzz-word". While it may not be the case that a questioner knows what tags to add, it should be that when the tag is added, the questioner goes "Oh, of course. If I'd known that tag existed I'd've added it."

Please add more suggestions, and comment whether or not you think this is a good idea.

  • PGFPlots (the tag already exists)
  • TKZ suite
