Portlet Cumulus for Plone

Quintagroup announces release of a Portlet Cumulus - a tag cloud portlet that rotates tags in 3D using a Flash movie.

Cumulus Portlet (quintagroup.portlet.cumulus) from Quintagroup allows you to add tag cloud portlets to display your site's tags, categories or both using a Flash movie that rotates them in 3D. It works just like a regular tags cloud, but it is more visually exciting. This is the WordPress WP-Cumulus plugin ported to Plone as a portlet.

  • Width and height of the flash tag cloud portlet
  • Smallest and largest tag size
  • You can set main and optionally second color of the tags for creating multi-colored tag cloud; optional highlight color when mouse is over it and background portlet color
  • Possibility to enable transparent or compatibility mode
  • Rotation speed. Remember that clicking the tags might turn to be a little hard, depending on your speed setting :).

Portlet Cumulus is now on PyPi. Give it a go!
