New Project: joomlacloud at

 I am proud to announce You that I’ve create a new project at #Joomla forge: joomlacloud (link soon here)

A tag cloud (more traditionally known as a weighted list in the field of visual design) is a visual depiction of content tags used on a website. Often, more frequently used tags are depicted in a larger font or otherwise emphasized, while the displayed order is generally alphabetical. Thus both finding a tag by alphabet and by popularity is possible. Selecting a single tag within a tag cloud will generally lead to a collection of items that are associated with that tag. from WikiPedia


  • Css driven
  • Ablity to count words either in title, metadesc, subtitle, articles text,
  • Sorting results

This component is able to display in a graphical way a list of terms and present to the users…

What have to be done:

  1. Implement a cache, counting and sorting words in a big site may be inaceptable in realtime…for my site it take 2s to create the tag clouds based on articles title…
  2. Configurable script using a config file,
  3. Finishing code to support relationnship like on this site (great idea by the way)
  4. Create an admin panel,
  5. Create a module,
  6. Refactoring, refactoring, refactoring!

and what does it look like? see here for existing example and below for my running version 🙂

using default #Joomla articles database:
8 words found
production database: 1780 words found
