2008 @ ColdFusionBloggers.org

Earlier today someone suggested adding a tag cloud to ColdFusionBloggers. I’m just enough of a nerd to think that would be something fun to do Friday night. In the meantime, I whipped up a quick SQL statement and dumped the results into a structure and sorted it: <cfquery name="cats" datasource="#application.dsn#"> select categories from entries where year(posted) = 2008 and categories != '' </cfquery>

<cfset d = {}> <cfloop query=”cats”> <cfloop index=”c” list=”#categories#”> <cfif len(trim(c))> <cfif not structKeyExists(d, c)> <cfset d[c] = 0> </cfif> <cfset d[c]++> </cfif> </cfloop> </cfloop>

<cfoutput> #numberFormat(cats.recordcount)# entries. <p/> <table border=”1” cellpadding=”10” style=”margin-top:0px;padding-top:0px;”> <tr> <th> </th> <th>Tag</th> <th>Count</th> </tr> </cfoutput>

<cfset sorted = structSort(d,”numeric”, “desc”)>

<cfloop index=”x” from=”1” to=”#min(100,arrayLen(sorted))#”> <cfset k = sorted[x]> <cfoutput> <tr> <td>#x#</td> <td>#k#</td> <td>#numberFormat(d[k])#</td> </tr> </cfoutput> </cfloop> <cfoutput></table></cfoutput> </code>

Not the prettiest code in the world, but it worked. All 3 of you using copies of the CFB code base are welcome to it. And now the results. I’ve printed out the top 100. The top ten aren’t surprising, especially #2. It almost matches exactly with what my top 10 concerns of year were (except for Lost of course!). ColdBox shows up rather high in the list, well over Model-Glue and Fusebox. I’m not surprised to see Mac at #17.

Anyway, enjoy the table-y goodness (need to find a simple, scrollable table for static data) and forgive the huge page size.

11,813 entries.
