Although over the past two years of my studies I’ve been drawn toward more human fields (primarily economics), I continue to love coding. Indeed, the times I spend coding are some of the best moments I have, partially because time disappears. While I’ve enjoyed dabbling in other areas, coding up something is still my favorite way to spend a night.
All this merely serves as an explanation of why I spent several hours converting the theme for this site into one anybody can use. It’s a fairly-customizable theme for Habari which I designed to take advantage of the innovations on that platform, particularly modules and areas.
So, if you’re interested in imitating the design of this site, just head on over to the project page and download Shield. Though I doubt many people will end up using this (if only because of Habari’s minuscule reach), it’s been fun to develop and will also give me an incentive to start designing a new theme for this site (after all, I can’t have too many imitators).
Also, I must say I’m quite proud of my project lab. As it serves as the home for numerous projects (primarily Habari bookmarks and plugins), constantly updating it would take too much work. Thus, I have developed a system on top of Habari which pulls in all the data, including releases and help information, from GitHub. If you want something similar, check out the plugin and theme which power it.
