Adds CSS classes to html tags in Pelican documents

Project description

Add css classes: A Plugin for Pelican

Adds CSS classes to html tags in Pelican documents


When we want to create a page or article we often use Markdown or RST. This allows us to write content very fast, but it gives us little to no control over the styling of our page.

That is why I created this plugin for Pelican so we can add classes to HTML elements inside


Both pages and articles

To set css classes that should be added to elements in both pages and articles you can use ADD_CSS_CLASSES.

You can also set which css classes should be added to elements on pages with ADD_CSS_CLASSES_TO_PAGE.

And this can also be done with articles using ADD_CSS_CLASSES_TO_ARTICLE.


Let's say you want to configure all tables to use Bootstrap, show black tables on pages and red headers on articles.

    "table": ["table"]

    "table": ["table", "table-dark"]

    "h1": ["text-danger"]


This plugin can be installed via:

pip install pelican-add-css-classes
