Another New Tagcloud

After discovering the overLib package from Eric Bosrup, that was used with the Periodic Table of Visualization Methods, I wanted to try it out with my blog tagcloud.

See previous posts for more details on how I generate this tagcloud ([link 1][link 2][link 3][link4]).

Here's what the new source code looks like. It was trivial to adjust the script to use overLib. I changed about five lines.

The new tagcloud is working much better. If the list of links for a particular tag is long, you still have to use the keyboard arrow keys to get to the hidden entries. In a future version, I'll look at adjusting the list to be an MxN rectangle of links. The "Links" link still has some nasty flicker, and there is the occasional jumping around. I'll chat with the overLib author on that, to see if there is anything I can do to improve it.

You can also easily find the tagcloud link near the bottom of the right column on my main blog page.
