Tagging Posts(Or whatever) in rails without any gems

Samuel Janes asked in Site Feedback

I've been creating a test app for a couple of weeks know, and want to have a tagging system. It would also be cool if it was polymorphic, so multiple models could have tags.



Question - why do you want to not be using any gems? What exactly is your goal - to have a good tagging system or to learn how to implement tagging?

Btw, you can learn a lot if you have a look at the source code of ActsAsTaggableOn.
