Font Awesome from inside a Pelican

Project description


Build Status

This is pelicanfly, a plugin for Pelican that lets you type things like i ♥ :fa-coffee: in your Markdown documents and have it come out as little Font Awesome icons in the browser. It provides a minimal extension to Markdown and a plugin for Pelican.

The Pelican plugin hacks in some static assets to make this work with Pelican “out of the box”. If you just want the Markdown extension, it is available separately.


It’s not hard, just install via pip:

(env)$ pip install pelicanfly

Then add to your Pelican settings, under PLUGINS as follows:

    # ...
    # ...

If you have followed these steps correctly, next time you build your Pelican blog, pelicanfly will do its magic and convert all the :fa-heart: style tags into proper nice little Font Awesome icons. Job done!
