Finding a new blogging system

by Mike Willbanks on December 23rd, 2005

So over the past few months I have been debating on a new blogging software as WordPress doesn’t exactly tickle my feet… I ran into a pretty good blogging software not to long ago called LifeType, while just past version 1.0 they have a fairly nice architecture almost purely object oriented. What is so nice about that is how you can actually utilize it to work as an API. The documentation is fairly interesting causing me to wonder exactly how they are doing it.

There is some odd behavior with the custom fields although that was just me implementing them utilizing the objects as an API and trashing the frontend. However this project is well thought out and beats writing my own as I am far too picky about my code to ever get it done in a reasonable time. However in the future after I finish off one of my many coding projects I have started I will probably end up writing one. I will probably wait for 5.1 to become a bit more stable and adopted in the community before I start a project like that.

Currently I try to write everything with php 4.4.x, php 5.0.x and 5.1.x to work all the same, however writing for compatibility between all of the versions sometimes can cause some issues. I guess I will see what I can create out of the LifeType blogging platform this weekend on my nice weekend off.
