PHP Tag Cloud


Build Status

echo $cloud->render();

Convert a string

$cloud->addString("This is a tag-cloud script, written by Del Harvey. I wrote this tag-cloud class because I just love writing code.");

Adding multiple tags


Removing a tag


Removing multiple tags


More complex adding

$cloud->addTag(array('tag' => 'php', 'url' => '', 'colour' => 1));
$cloud->addTag(array('tag' => 'ajax', 'url' => '', 'colour' => 2));
$cloud->addTag(array('tag' => 'css', 'url' => '', 'colour' => 3));

Set the minimum length required


Limiting the output


Set the order


Set a custom HTML output

$cloud->setHtmlizeTagFunction(function($tag, $size) use ($baseUrl) {
  $link = '<a href="'.$baseUrl.'/'.$tag['url'].'">'.$tag['tag'].'</a>';
  return "<span class='tag size{$size} colour-{$tag['colour']}'>{$link}</span> ";

Outputting the cloud (shown above)

echo $cloud->render();


By default, all accented characters will be converted into their non-accented equivalent, this is to circumvent duplicate similar tags in the same cloud, to disable this functionality and display the UTF-8 characters you can do the following:

$tagCloud->setOption('transliterate', false);
