One can retrieve field items from an entity with
// Find all terms on $node in field 'field_tags'. $terms = field_get_items('node', $node, 'field_tags');
But is there a convenient way to do the reverse, Core, or otherwise?
// Attach new term $term to $node in field 'field_tags'. $term = taxonomy_term_load($tid); $node = field_set_items('node', $node, 'field_tags', 'taxonomy_term', $term); node_save($node);
I would like to avoid the hassle of manually assigning a $term, go look in devel what the array structure looks like and then build the array by hand, as it is sometimes non-trivial.
The only issue in the core queue I could find that looked vaguely similar was about the field language api DX.
