Better Cloud

·1 min

The Launchpad Code home page is now a little bit nicer and a little bit faster.

For a while now, the page has had a tag cloud showing some projects that host branches on Launchpad. The tag cloud is drawn based on the following rules:

  • The more branches, the bigger the tag
  • The more recent the last commit, the less faded the tag
  • If Launchpad is the place to go for getting the project’s code, colour it green. Otherwise, blue.

Up until recently, the home page only showed some projects starting with ‘A’ – which is a bit silly. My recent patch changed the query to show the most branch-y projects on Launchpad. It looks a lot nicer, IMO.

Martin Albisetti has asked me to change the colours though. Expect an update soon.
