  • Description

    Habari is a “next-generation free software blogging patform” still in development but backed by some of the web’s most respected coders and developers. Habari will grow to be something special.

    Although it is available for download and instant use, the project code is still in development. Below are some of the points that separate Habari from the crowd:

    Habari is being written with a firm understanding of the current state of blogging. Most other blogging packages have been around long enough that their responses to things like comment spam and Digg site overloads are bolted on after the fact; whereas Habari is being written from the beginning to take these things — and more — into account.

    Habari strongly favors open, standard, and documented protocols. Atom, being both open and documented, is the prefered syndication format, and the Atom Publishing Protocol is the prefered means of remote communication with your site. This is a core feature, and not a plugin.

    Habari is being written specifically for modern web hosting environments, and uses modern object-oriented programming techniques. Using these recent but well-established additions to the PHP language allows Habari to make use of PDO, enabling prepared statements for all interactions with the database. This greatly reduces the system’s vulnerability to SQL injection attacks. This is just one of many benefits of modern object-oriented techniques.

Many are asking how to install without using SHELL. Not everyone’s a geek, including me. I hope Habari looks into another guide just for us non-geeks.

Pls do not take my RATING into serious consideration as I have not tested Habari yet due to difficulty/not knowing how to install this.
