Tumblr Tag Cloud
A simple PHP app that serves a cached tag cloud for your Tumblr
This app is distributed under the MIT License and is free software.
- A web hosting server with PHP, MySQL and optionally Memcache or APC
- A subdomain to host the app on
- A few minutes of your time to install
Create or choose a MySQL database to hold the app's data. (By default, tables are prefixed with 'cloud_' so you can choose an existing database without fear of it being gummed up with weird new tables everywhere.)
Place the application files on your web server such that your subdomain's public web directory is hosting the contents of the app's webroot/ directory, and the other application directories such as controllers/ and models/ live in the parent directory of your web directory. Note that your web directory does not actually have to be named webroot, it just needs to serve the files contained in this project's webroot/ directory.
Copy the configuration file template from includes/local.default.php to includes/local.php and edit the file to specify your local configuration. The file is heavily commented up, so it should be pretty straightforward, unless you're a n00b, in which case contact me and I'll help you and fix the docs.
Go to the subdomain you set the app up on and it should walk you through the database installation process. You're good to go!
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. If you're code savvy, fork the project and make the change yourself! I will do my best to help if something doesn't work or isn't clear. You can find me on Twitter @rubbingalcohol
