Tagged value obscurity–remedy

Today the MDriven Tagged Value handling was changed to the better.

We need the tagged values for many things – but increasingly much to influence fine tune details of Modernity.

The model – or Gist – should not need to know about Modernity. Still controlling the abilities of the modernity must be practical and efficient – Tagged values is the best option.

The problem is having a lot of tagged values defined in modernity that is not really known in the Gist makes developing complete systems hard – since they require that Gist and Modernity play well together.

This has been a long time headache – how can we offer a good middle-ground to make specific modernity tagged values available in the the tool of the Gist.

Solution

Today we introduce the wiki-backed-tagged-value-editor:
