Technorati Tags

The folks at Technorati have been working toward leveraging the blogging community through the use of tags and aggregation... After playing around a little trying to do the HTML these tags manually, I finally got fed up enough with the tedium to cook up my own little tool. What's more, I'm making it available for anyone else to use.

The app is a simple little .NET application, that on first use creates a little ASCII file, "tags.txt" that you can add your own favorite tag categories to... after adding your tags, press "generate" and it will generate your HTML for you. Additionally, you can add and remove tags using the tool, or if you prefer, import the tags into tags.txt using notepad or a suitable ASCII editor. The tags.txt file will be maintained sorted in alphabetic order, should you want to use other tools with it.

The screenshot to the right shows it in action...

You can download it at the link below... FREE, but remember where you found it...

License terms- I make this available for personal use, but reserve all rights beyond this. I'm no expert on licensing terms, I mainly ask that if you want to to modify or use this app outside of its intended use, drop me a line and we can discuss.


August 14, 2006 UPDATE: The server has been
having some issues - I have uploaded a copy of the tool here:

  8. Thank so much - merci beaucoup, David, it's a very mice tool and it works fine !

  9. nice tool... you should make the code available under gpl licensing or something like that. I was trying to run it under mono/linux... but I think mono windows forms still need some tuning.

    Thanks, David... Nice tool... I notice that the text embeds your name and web site... That's cool. I assume it's okay if I delete that after the first tag used in any blog entry or elsewhere. Want to give you the credit, but don't want to keep repeating it when I use multiple tags...

  11. thanks for the tool. it's great
