A tool to generate a static blog, with restructured text (or markdown) 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, or markdown.
  • 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 !

Features

Pelican currently supports:

  • blog articles
  • comments, via an external service (disqus). Please notice that while it’s useful, it’s an external service, and you’ll not manage the comments by yourself. It could potentially eat your data.
  • theming support (themes are done using jinja2)
  • PDF generation of the articles/pages (optional).

Have a look to the documentation for more informations.

Why the name “Pelican” ?

Heh, you didn’t noticed? “Pelican” is an anagram for “Calepin” ;)
