Quintagroup's new office

Quintagroup team is moving to a brand new office.

It is time to separate! Part of our team - our dear developers team - moves from our good old office into a brand new one! The repairs completed, new furniture is in, everything clean and light - so we move in! We used to be all together at 3 adjacent rooms for more than 3 years. Now that the company grows, and there are more and more of us, our old office became toocramped and too noisy...

So, our brand-new office room. It is located in the same building as the old one, but one stage higher. We're separated now but still close enough. :) Space, glorious space! Big and light room with 10 working places and a cozy kitchen-restroom.

You might have see our new office room, as we celebrated World Plone Day 2009 there. But then, 1 month from now it lacked furniture and green plants; now it is all packed. Everything on its place and everybody at their working desks.

So, thanks to everyone who worked hard so that now we can arrive everyday to this pleasant place!

Portlet Cumulus for Plone

Quintagroup announces release of a Portlet Cumulus - a tag cloud portlet that rotates tags in 3D using a Flash movie.

Cumulus Portlet (quintagroup.portlet.cumulus) from Quintagroup allows you to add tag cloud portlets to display your site's tags, categories or both using a Flash movie that rotates them in 3D. It works just like a regular tags cloud, but it is more visually exciting. This is the WordPress WP-Cumulus plugin ported to Plone as a portlet.

portlet-culumus.pngWhen you add this portlet anywhere in the site it will display all site's tags. You are free to set cumulus portlet options so that it fits your site design, color scheme etc. Among portlet options you can find:

  • Width and height of the flash tag cloud portlet
  • Smallest and largest tag size
  • You can set main and optionally second color of the tags for creating multi-colored tag cloud; optional highlight color when mouse is over it and background portlet color
  • Possibility to enable transparent or compatibility mode
  • Rotation speed. Remember that clicking the tags might turn to be a little hard, depending on your speed setting :).
P.S. Click on the image on the right to be taken to the page with portlet cumulus demo.

Portlet Cumulus is now on PyPi. Give it a go!
