Project description

Broken Links

Find all the broken links!

Broken Links helps you detect broken links in your Lektor site.

Currently it's only smart enough to check internal links, but it's considering getting a degree in external link detection.


  • Fast - Less than 1 second to check sites with hundreds of pages.
  • Simple - Install on your site and it quietly runs on every build.

Getting Started

Broken Links depends on the following packages...

  • mistune >= 0.7.0, <2
  • click >= 7.0
  • furl >= 2.1.0

...which can be easily installed with...

$ pip install mistune click furl

Once dependencies are installed, you can add Broken Links to your Lektor project with...

$ lektor plugins add lektor-broken-links

Alternatively Broken Links can be installed manually by copying the plugin folder into packages/.

Once Broken Links is installed, run lektor build or lektor server. Any broken internal links will be printed in the build output, along with the page they were found on.
