Eye Candy For Developers

16. June, 2008

There are two new projects on the ‘net which might influence the way we see software in the future (in the literal sense). code_swarm can visualize the CVS history of a project in a cunning way and Wordle creates tightly packed tag clouds.

What I find especially interesting about Wordle is that it creates the tag cloud in real time (as you watch) using a Java applet. If you happen to have Java 6 installed, the animations are very smooth, almost like Flash.
