A tool to generate a static blog, with restructured text input files.

Project description

Pelican is a simple weblog generator, writen in python.

  • Write your weblog entries directly with your editor of choice (vim!) and directly in restructured text.
  • A simple cli-tool to (re)generate the weblog.
  • Easy to interface with DVCSes and web hooks
  • Completely static output, so easy to host anywhere !

Source code

Get the source code from http://hg.notmyidea.org/pelican/

Getting started

Yeah? You’re ready? Let’s go !:

$ pip install pelican
$ pelican -p /path/to/your/content/
...

And… that’s all! You can see your weblog generated on the content/ folder.

Metadata

Pelican tries to be smart enough to get the informations he needs from the filesystem (for instance, about date of creation of the files), but it seems to be less reliable than static metadata.

You could provide the metadata in the restructured text files, using the following syntax:

My super title

Why the name “Pelican” ?

Heh, you didnt noticed? “Pelican” is an anagram for “Calepin” ;)

Feedback !

If you want to see new features in Pelican, dont hesitate to tell me, to clone the repository, etc. That’s open source, dude!
