After years of search and waiting I believe I've finally found the "blogging system" which will suit my needs. I've seen them all. Stupid gorillas like joomla or drupal (try to steer those behemoths in some meaningful direction), hyped yet brittle like glass (yeah and try to move their code out of docroot). Funny but really unusable micro stuff like sNews, "cool" WordPress, epic fails in the likes of BLOG:CMS, hacks like blog plugins for major blog software (phpBB) and wikis (dokuwiki), including "a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers..."
The point is, I just want to move all the crap from the docroot, besides static things. Why? Because I can, because I have enough brain to do it, because I believe it is better in every possible way and lastly but most importantly, because I have the possibility to do exactly that on my hosting.
The point also is, that I just want to have entries in DB and don't want to wander through endless flatfiles (with their own set of permission problems) and would like to select those entries, sort them, export them and do anything else with them in the uncertain future.
I, also, just don't want to run whale in itself, like PHPIDS is, screaming on every fucking post "VIOLATION!". That abomination is running dozens and maybe even hundreds of regexps over every single HTTP request (now talk about prepared statements being slow).
I want to use above mentioned prepared statements because, I always believed that control channel should be impermeably separated from data over which it operates (yeah you guessed right, I hate OOP with passion). So after many tries I returned to this "new" (alphish-betish) project, which I foolishly dismissed before as underdeveloped. It's called Habari.
So, I am saying obligatory lines to help this project spread: this site is running Habari, a state-of-the-art pulishing platform! Habari is a community-driven project created and supported by people from all over the world. Please visit http://habariproject.org/ to find out more!
Let's wait and see the bright future.
