Reader plugin for Markdown-IT-py replacement

This is double-opinionated, in that it's opinionated using Markdown-IT and again because we add in some additions; in particular:

  • Tables
  • footnotes
  • Pygment-based syntax highlighting


This plugin can be installed via:

python -m pip install pelican-markdown-it-reader


There are currently no configuration items.

Once installed it takes over responsibility for reading the following file extensions:

  • md
  • markdown
  • mkd
  • mdown

By taking over link_open and image render rules, the plugin handles replacing the pelican link placeholders with appropriate href items which are then rendered to html.


Contributions are welcome and much appreciated. Every little bit helps. You can contribute by improving the documentation, adding missing features, and fixing bugs. You can also help out by reviewing and commenting on existing issues.

To start contributing to this plugin, review the Contributing to Pelican documentation, beginning with the Contributing Code section.
