NAME

HTML::TagCloud::Extended - HTML::TagCloud extension

SYNOPSIS

    use HTML::TagCloud::Extended;

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new();
    $cloud->add($tag1, $url1, $count1, $timestamp1);
    $cloud->add($tag2, $url2, $count2, $timestamp2);
    $cloud->add($tag3, $url3, $count3, $timestamp3);

    my $html = $cloud->html_and_css( {
        order_by => 'count_desc',
        limit    => 20,
    } );

DESCRIPTION

This is extension of HTML::TagCloud.

This module allows you to register timestamp with tags. And color of tags will be changed according to it's timestamp.

Now, this doesn't depend on HTML::TagCloud.

TIMESTAMP

When you call 'add()' method, set timestamp as last argument.

    $cloud->add('perl','http://www.perl.org/', 20, '2005-07-15 00:00:00');

FORMAT

follow three types of format are allowed.

2005-07-15 00:00:00
2005/07/15 00:00:00
20050715000000

COLORS

This module chooses color from follow four types according to tag's timestamp.

earliest
earlier
later
latest

You needn't to set colors because the default colors are set already.

But when you want to set colors by yourself, of course, you can.

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new;

    $cloud->colors->set(
        earliest => '#000000',
    );

    $cloud->colors->set(
        earlier => '#333333',
        later   => '#999999',
        latest  => '#cccccc',
   );

    # or, you can set color for each attribute
    $cloud->colors->set(
        earliest => {
            link    => '#000000',
            hover   => '#CCCCCC',
            visited => '#333333',
            active  => '#666666',
        },
    );

LIMITTING

When you want to limit the amount of tags, 'html()', html_and_css()' need second argument as hash reference.

    $cloud->html_and_css( { order_by => 'timestamp_desc' , limit => 20 } );

SORTING TYPE

default is 'name'

name
name_desc
count
count_desc
timestamp
timestamp_desc

OTHER FEATURES

use_hot_color

set by size

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new(
        use_hot_color => 'size',
        hot_tags_size => 24,
    );

    # or set with accessor method

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new;

    $cloud->use_hot_color('size');
    $cloud->hot_tags_size(24);

Then, tags that's size is over 24 applys color for 'hot'. If you omit 'hot_tags_size', it'll be proper number automatically.

set by name

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new(
        use_hot_color => 'name',
        hot_tags_name => [ 'perl', 'ruby', 'python' ],
    );

    # or set with accessor method

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new;

    $cloud->use_hot_color('name');
    $cloud->hot_tags_name('perl', 'ruby', 'puthon');

You can alse change colors for 'hot' by yourself.

    $cloud->colors->set( hot => '#ff9900' );

    # or

    $cloud->colors->set(
        hot => {
            link    => '#000000',
            hover   => '#CCCCCC',

        },
    );
base_font_size

default size is 24

    # set as constructor's argument
    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new(
        base_font_size => 30,
    );

    # or you can use accessor.
    $cloud->base_font_size(30);
size_suffix

default suffix is 'px'

You can choose it from [ mm cm in pt pc px ].

    # set as constructor's argument
    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new(
        size_suffix => 'pt',
    );

    # or you can use accessor.
    $cloud->size_suffix('cm');
font_size_range

defualt range is 12.

    my $cloud = HTML::TagCloud::Extended->new(
        font_size_range => 10
    );

    $cloud->font_size_range(10);
css_class
