Out of pure boredom (and to get my mind working again thanks to having to work overnight), I've collected a handful of outstanding sites powered by Habari. Outstanding as in "not using the standard theme" (ie. charcoal), still active, etc.. In no particular order, they are:
- Asymptomatic - using Cufona lot
- A White Box - Rather different looking theme (compared with other habari-powered sites, which tend to stick to rather simple and reduced design)
- Die Bauchnabelbürste - one of the few german Habari-powered blogs I found in the list in the official Habari wiki
- Lvx ex Cælis - Blog by Joel Lee, Taiwan
- Broken Kode
- Miklb's Mindless Ramblings - chronicling life in a digital world
- Colin Seymour - using HTML 5 and CSS 3
- daheads blog² - Yet another german Habari-powered weblog
- Something To Chew On - All about cooking, I guess ;)
- sw'as - Yet another very individually styled, cufon-(ab)using blog. Also uses HTML 5 and other high-end hyped stuff
- Design Intellection
- kobak pont org - Hungarian weblog by Koren Balazs (kobak)
Note: During this "research" I've found at least three sites or better their owners, who have switched (back) to WordPress. After using Habari for over 1 1/2 years, I personally would not consider switching back to WordPress no matter what. I know the code of WP by heart as I have to work with it during my daily job - and NO Sir! I wouldnt want yet another site to have to update on a regular base AND being total overkill AND being totally out-of-date in the matter of technoledge (ie. WP is still using compatiblity layers for PHP 4, horrible mix-ups of classes and functions, etc. pp).
What I would want to have (for Habari) is a better plugin documentation or at least some easy tutorials for programming more complex plugins than the mere 'hello world' thingy.
