Tag cloud dashlet for Alfresco Share

This small extension to Share provides a new site dashlet to display the most popular tags within the site as a tag cloud.







The dashlet uses the existing tagging REST API, so no additional repository tier scripts are required. The zipped files can be extracted into your tomcat/shared/classes directory to add the Share support. You should find that the directory structure will be automatically created, although you will need to move the site-tags.css file to the components/dashlets directory in the webapp.



It should be trivial to write a second dashlet to surface a global tag cloud, suitable for display in a user dashboard, using the list all tags method, rather than the tagscope-based approach used by this script.



UPDATE: The latest version of the code can now be found on the site tags dashlet page.

I tried this on a share (version Alfresco Enterprise edition 3.1 SP1) but this file site-tags.get.head.ftl gives a problem:



There is no such file...

The latest version of the code has now been back-ported to Alfresco 3.1. Check out the site tags dashlet page above for downloads.

Hello!



I would like to know if this works for Alfresco 3.2r too.



Thanks

Yes, the normal downloads will work in 3.2r with the exception of the tag links when a specific tag scope (e.g. Document Library or Wiki) is selected from the drop-down, which require a more recent build.

joemar - if you're using Alfresco Share already then this has support for tagging content. This dashlet provides a way of displaying the tag cloud on a site dashboard. If you need a quick guide to how to use Share then see this video here - http://www.alfresco.com/en-gb/products/video/?v=share-intro1
