Tag Cloud

I’ve been wanting to redo my keyword system on PaperDemon for a while. There were a couple things I wanted to change about it. One was to change it from storing the text of each keyword everytime it’s used. The other, is I wanted to change it to a tag cloud where it makes the common words larger and less common words smaller. I love this type of visualization of data.

So I decided today was going to be the day that I build my tag cloud class.¬†And it only took me a day’s work to finish it! So far I have only integrated it into the Blogs system. This is because PaperDemon’s blog system did not have a keyword/tag system yet so it was easy to plop one in. You can see the start of our very own blogging tag cloud here:

I will migrate artwork and comics to it eventually. However, I’d have to first migrate any existing data into the tag cloud which is not going to be an easy feat. Especially considering artwork has +75,000 keyword entries.
