Is there a way for me to download the full list of tags (and synonyms) used on Stack Overflow? My intent is to import these tags into an SQLite database as part of a process to convert all of my delicious bookmarks and tags to the ones used here on Stack Overflow.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
As of right now, you can only get a list of tags. Tag synonyms are not publicly available yet, but have already been requested.
There are a few ways of going about getting the data:
Yes. Get a data dump and parse the tags field on each record. It's not a nicely wrapped package of just the tags, and parsing them is not straightforward, but it's not bad either.
