Add more granular signals to Pelican.
Ensure that your Pelican plugin is called at the right time, every time.
Love Pelican but hate that your finalization plugin isn’t always called in the right order? Don’t let your plugin get lost in the shuffle of the finalized signal! pelican-granular-signals adds new finalization signals that guarantee your plugin is called at the right time, every time.
New Pelican signals
When pelican-granular-signals is installed, the following signals will be called immediately after the finalized signal:
Each signal will be sent with the same argument that is sent to the finalized signal.
Connecting to granular signals
Your plugin must register with blinker directly. Here’s a complete example:
import blinker import pelican.plugins.granular_signals def register(): # This line is highly recommended so users # don't have to update their configurations. pelican.plugins.granular_signals.register() # Connect your awesome plugin to a granular signal. blinker.signal("deploy").connect(deploy_site) # ----------------------------------------------------- # Put your awesome plugin code here. import subprocess def deploy_site(instance): subprocess.run(instance.settings["DEPLOY_COMMAND"])
Helping users out
To make life easier for users, consider taking these two steps:
List pelican-granular-signals as a dependency so it will be automatically installed with your plugin.
When Pelican calls your plugin’s register() function, call pelican.plugins.granular_signals.register().
Pelican 4.5 introduced a new, automatic plugin loading feature and pelican-granular-signals is designed to work with this feature! Unfortunately, if a user specifies which plugins to load in their configuration file then automatic plugin loading will be disabled. It is therefore recommended that you call pelican.plugins.granular_signals.register() in your plugin’s register() function.
pelican.plugins.granular_signals.register() can be called multiple times without creating any problems.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
