Website as graphs

by on May.29, 2006, under Technology, Web

I think this is art.

This picture is generated with a program in website as graphs. This program takes in a URL and generates connected colour dots by what the website pointed to by what the URL has. Each dot is coloured differently depending on the html tags encountered. Each run of the program with the same url gives a slightly different picture. Personally, I think this is a very nicely done flower.


What do the colors mean?
blue: for links (the A tag)
: for tables (TABLE, TR and TD tags)
green: for the DIV tag
violet: for images (the IMG tag)
yellow: for forms (FORM, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT and OPTION tags)
orange: for linebreaks and blockquotes (BR, P, and BLOCKQUOTE tags)
black: the HTML tag, the root node
gray: all other tags
