Pelican plugin to make a multi-byte slug the alphabetical one.

Project description

Pelican is good project but slugify function is a little bit unuseful and not customizable. This problem will appear if you are a developer using multi-byte language. So we wanna exchange multi-byte words to alphabetical words caused by multi-byte url problem.

URL encoded word is not beautiful, Japanese word Otaku will change like this “%83I%83%5E%83N”. If we can use an URL containing only alphabets and other marks not multi-byte, we wanna do that.

Pelican try to automatically exchange it. But Japanese and some multi-byte languages are very complex that because they are having some pronounciations. This try will absolutely be failure and they make funny words we could not read it.

This plugin will help these situation. You can define some slugs for your categories like this:

    (u'オタク', u'otaku'),
    (u'寿司', u'sushi'),

Another feature is that to define your slugify function like this:

def SLUG_FUNC(value, substitutions=()):
    value = value.replace(u'禅', 'zen')
    return value

These settings are on your then just work.


This plugin is not registered on PyPI. You should clone this repository and install through pip:

git clone
cd pelican_slug
pip install -e .


Put this code on your and customize it:

PLUGINS = ['pelican_slug']

def SLUG_FUNC(value, substitutions=()):
    # Do something you want.
    return value

    (u'オタク', u'otaku'),
    (u'寿司', u'sushi'),
