Tag Cloud 1.2 - Updated 27/04/2010

Postby trixmoto » Sun Jan 17, 2010 5:46 pm

This script was requested here. It is designed to show a "tag cloud" based on the field of your choice, for example...

As always, the installer is available from my website. Use the "View" menu to show/hide this panel and click the pen icon to edit the options.

As you can see from the screenshot in the first post (which I've just updated!) down the right side of the panel is a floating toolbar. The top icon is to refresh the panel, the pen icon is to show the options screen, and finally there's a status message.

Nevermind I found it, although I was not happy that the panel was turned off by default, I had to go into the script to turn it on in order to move it and get to the settings option.

One minor request: Would it be possible for it to use the font info from Monkey Rok (if it is installed), that might minimize the color clashes, but otherwise I look forward to playing with this one.

EDIT: Sorry me again, what is clicking on the Cloud supposed to do, other than show the count of the total files? I assumed clicking on a cloud would list all the tracks that meet the criteria.

The panel should be displayed when first installed, and you can use the "View" menu to toggle it on/off (shortcut is Ctrl+Alt+C). I just couldn't bare to create ANOTHER option sheet! :)

Well I presume you mean the font colour more than the font style? You might notice that as well as the size, also the "strength" of the colour varies with the count. This means that the colour is not just "blue", there are 8 colours defined. So it's not as simple as picking up a value from somewhere else. I was thinking about adding other "schemes" (eg. red, green...) but didn't do this for the first release.

EDIT: Clicking does nothing at the moment, I was thinking of making it browse to the appropriate node but ran out of time this weekend.

The panel was visible the but caption was not, so I had to go into the script to turn line 56 from False to True so that I could move the panel and get to the settings.

Yes I was thinking of the color, the blue doesn't match all the skins that I use so it clashes.

Thanks, I thought I was missing something. Can you explain the purpose of Clouds, I never used any before??

Oooops! :oops: Didn't think about moving the panel, I'll add an option to show the panel caption in the next version.

I plan to add more font styles and colours to the next version, any in particular you want me to include?

Well it's supposed to be a graphical representation of the data. For example, when I select "Year" I can clearly see that most of my music was released in 2006, I can see this because it is the biggest and boldest tag. It's basically just an alphabetical list of tags where their frequency count (or popularity) is represented visually rather than numerically. I'm not sure I'm explaining it very well, look here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_cloud

I think the basic colors would be good, that way the user can find one that matches, but black would be winner.

Thanks I'll read that over. :D I guess I was looking for functionality rather than visual enhancements.

Re: Tag Cloud 1.1 - Updated 24/01/2010

Postby trixmoto » Sun Jan 24, 2010 2:07 pm

New version (1.1) is now available to download from my website. Changes include...

- Added option to show panel caption
- Added option to select font colour
- Added option to define font style
- Added clicking on tag browses to node

When clicking on a tag to browse to a node, this obviously will not work from Custom fields, for example, as they are not listed in the tree anywhere. Also the node has to be visible, if it is not visible then this action is disabled. If you displaying "Album Artist" tags and this node cannot be found in the tree then it will attempt to use the "Artist" node, and then the "Artist & Album Artist" node.

I have now added a choice of 6 colours; black, blue, green, orange, purple and red. If anyone comes up with any more colour schemes, please let me know and I'll add them to the next version.

Very nice script :D

I've only one request. Is it possible that when you click a tag it can redirect to a node made with MagicNodes (with the same name)? Or when clicking on a tag will display all songs?

Also, if possible if it would not expand the node.

I've added these suggestions to my list. I'm not sure how you've got your magic nodes set up though, I don't really see how I could traverse this.
