Recent activity: Habari plugins

I think I'm just about keeping to this one-post-a-week thing, almost. I've recently been playing with the internals of Habari, writing a couple of plugins. I've found it quite well put together, though I don't seem to ever get the Utils::debug() output to display properly - though this might have been due to the code I was writing running before a redirect. I believe though that I now have got 2 plugins which I'm going to investigate publishing - one which generates the Facebook and Twitter widgets at the bottom of the posts (and the relevant OpenGraph metadata for Facebook in the header), and another which pings and generates a short URL for each post as it's published. I'm writing this post in part as a test to see that it works for real :-) If I get a bit of time over the next few days, I'll finish tidying them up and make them available. If anyone's interested before I do, drop me an email or catch me on Twitter.
