:alt: Seafoam Logo

``Seafoam`` is a theme for `Pelican <http://docs.getpelican.com/>`_,
a static site generator written in Python.

The ``seafoam`` theme is based on Bootstrap 3, and was first used at
`Minchin.ca <http://minchin.ca>`_.

Installation
------------

The easiest way to install the ``seafoam`` theme is through the use
of pip. This will also install the required dependencies automatically.

.. code-block:: sh

pip install seafoam

Then, in your ``pelicanconf.py`` file, import the module, use the
built in function to specify your theme location, set the default
colour scheme (more options coming soon), add the required plugins, and set
the image processing patterns used:

.. code-block:: python

import seafoam

THEME = seafoam.get_path()
BOOTSTRAP_THEME = 'seafoam'

PLUGINS = ['minchin.pelican.jinja_filters',
'minchin.pelican.plugins.image_process',
# others, as desired...
]

IMAGE_PROCESS = {
'article-feature': ["scale_in 848 848 True"],
'index-feature': ["scale_in 263 263 True"],
}

# Generate 404 error page
TEMPLATE_PAGES = {
'404.html': '404.html',
}

# the rest of the your configuration file...


You will may also need to configure the theme through the use of additional
settings (see below).


Requirements
------------

``Seafoam`` requires Pelican and the ``image_process`` and
the ``jinja filters`` plugin. If the theme is installed from pip, these
should be automatically installed. If needed they can be manually
installed with pip:

.. code-block:: sh

pip install pelican
pip install minchin.pelican.plugins.image_process
pip install minchin.pelican.jinja_filters


Supported Plugins
-----------------

Seafoam works with several other plugins for Pelican, but none of those
listed in this section are required.

- `readtime <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pelican-readtime>`_ -- provides estimated reading time for articles. Available from PyPI as ``pelican-readtime``.
- `post-stats <https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins/tree/master/post_stats>`_ -- provides estimated reading time for articles if `readtime` is not available. Available in the `Pelican Plugins collection <https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins/>`_.
- `neighbors <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pelican-neighbors>`_ -- provides post-article links to the next and previous article on your blog and the next and previous article in that category. Available on PyPI as ``pelican-neighours``.
- `pelican_comment_system <https://bernhard.scheirle.de/posts/2014/March/29/static-comments-via-email/>`_ -- add static comments to your blog. Available in the `Pelican Plugins collection <https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins/>`_.
- `Related Posts <https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins/tree/master/related_posts>`_ -- adds the related_posts variable to the article's context.
- Tipue Search


Additional Settings
-------------------

These settings can be set in your ``pelicanconf.py`` file (your Pelican settings
file) to alter the behavior of the theme.

If a value is given below, this represents the effective default value. If no
value is given, the effective default value is `None`.

If you are using this theme on a sub-site (i.e a directory of the "main site"),
look at ``MENUITEMS_2``, ``MENUITEMS_2_AT``, and ``MENUITEMS_2_AT_LINK``
settings.

If you are using this theme on a subdomain, look at the ``SITE_ROOT_URL``
setting.

This documentation has to be manually updated. If the settings no longer match
the theme's behavior, or a setting is missing from here, please open a ticket
on `GitHub <https://github.com/MinchinWeb/seafoam/issues>`_.

.. use the ".. data::" directive here for Sphinx output, but on GitHub, that just causes everything to disappear

ABOUT_ME
You can show a short blurb of text about yourself and a picture. This setting
is the paragraph. Raw HTML is accepted. See the ``AVATAR`` setting to set the
picture.
ADAM
These ADAM settings were originally set up to support my genealogy sub-site
(the original name of the the pre-processor I was using as called "Adam"). If
this is set to ``False``, the rest of the ADAM_* settings won't be active.
These settings are probably generic enough that you could use these for any
generator or outside program used to help generate your site.
ADAM_COPY_DATE
Override the copyright date in the footer. (Provide a string).
ADAM_FOOTER
An extra "page footer" to apply to all pages. (Provide an HTML string.)
ADAM_LINK
Link target for the Adam version text.
ADAM_UPDATED
Override the updated date.
ADAM_VERSION
Reported name and version of "Adam".
ADDTHIS_PROFILE
You can enable sharing buttons through `AddThis <http://www.addthis.com/>`_
by this setting to your AddThis profile-id. This will display a Tweet,
Facebook Like and Google +1 button under each post.
ARCHIVES_URL
Same as the regular Pelican setting.
ASSET_CSS
Set to ``True`` if you want the ``asset`` plugin to compile your CSS.
ASSET_JS
Set to ``True`` if you want the ``asset`` plugin to compile your Javascript.
AUTHOR
Who to list as the copyright belonging to in the site footer.
AUTHORS_URL
Same as the regular Pelican setting.
AVATAR
You can show a short blurb of text about yourself and a picture. This setting
is the path to the picture. See the ``ABOUT_ME`` setting to set the
descriptive paragraph.
BOOTSTRAP_NAVBAR_INVERSE = False
Apply inverse CSS setting to Navbar.
BOOTSTRAP_THEME
Set this to `seafoam`. Other values (including leaving this unset) are not
expected to work correctly.
CATEGORIES_URL
Same as the regular Pelican setting.
CATEGORY_IMAGES
Provide a default featured image by category. If an image is set in the
article metadata, that will override this.

Provide a dictionary where the key is the category name and the value is the
path of the image, relative to the SITEURL.
CC_ATTR_MARKUP
Optionally, you can include attribution markup in the CC license mark by
setting this to ``True``.
CC_LICENSE
Set a site-wide Creative Commons License by specify the "short name" of the
license (like ``CC_BY``, or ``CC-BY-NC-ND``). Alternately, use
``CC_LICENSE_COMMERCIAL`` and ``CC_LICENSE_DERIVATIVES`` to "build a
license".
CC_LICENSE_COMMERCIAL
"yes" if commercial use is permitted, "no" otherwise. Use this in lieu of
``CC_LICENSE`` and in combination with ``CC_LICENSE_DERIVATIVES`` to "build a
license".
CC_LICENSE_DERIVATIVES
"yes" is derivatives are permitted, "no" otherwise. Use this in lieu of
``CC_LICENSE`` and in combination with ``CC_LICENSE_COMMERCIAL`` to "build a
license".
CUSTOM_CSS
Link, relative to SITEURL, to a custom CSS file.
CUSTOM_CSS_LIST
Custom CSS to load; can be either absolute links, or relative links. If the
listed item starts with ``//``, ``http://``, ``https://``, it is assumed to
be absolute link and added as-is to the markup. Otherwise, the link is
assumed to be relative to SITEURL.
CUSTOM_JS_LIST
Custom Javascript to load; can be either scripts, absolute links, or relative
links. If the listed item starts with ``<script``, then the item is assumed
to be the contents of a script, including opening and closing tags, and so
added to the pages' markup directly. If the listed item starts with ``//``,
``http://``, ``https://``, it is assumed to be absolute link and added as-is
to the markup. Otherwise, the link is assumed to be relative to SITEURL.

See also ``CUSTOM_JS_LIST_HEAD`` and ``JQUERY_JS_IN_HEAD``.
CUSTOM_JS_LIST_HEAD
Exactly the same format as ``CUSTOM_JS_LIST``, but is added to the pages'
``<head>`` section rather than the end of the page. Generally, you will want
to put your Javascript at the end of the page (i.e. in ``CUSTOM_JS_LIST``
rather than here), as any Javascript referenced here must generally be
completed loaded before the page will start being rendered.

When ``JQUERY_JS_IN_HEAD == True`` (not the default), JQuery is listed before
the other scripts listed here.

See also ``CUSTOM_JS_LIST`` and ``JQUERY_JS_IN_HEAD``.
DEFAULT_LANG
.
DISPLAY_BREADCRUMBS = False
Display Breadcrumbs on site.

See also ``MENUITEMS_2_AT`` and ``MENUITEMS_2_AT_LINK`` settings.
DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_ON_MENU
Include categories on the main site menu.
DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_ON_SIDEBAR
Include a listing of categories on the sidebar (assuming the sidebar is
active; see ``HIDE_SIDEBAR`` setting)
DISPLAY_PAGES_ON_MENU
Include a listing of pages on the sidebar (assuming the sidebar is active;
see ``HIDE_SIDEBAR`` setting)
DISPLAY_RECENT_POSTS_ON_SIDEBAR
Include a listing of recent posts on the sidebar (assuming the sidebar is
active; see ``HIDE_SIDEBAR`` setting). Also see the ``RECENT_POST_COUNT``
setting.
DISPLAY_TAGS_INLINE
.
DISPLAY_TAGS_ON_SIDEBAR = True
Include a listing of tags on the sidebar (assuming the sidebar is active;
see ``HIDE_SIDEBAR`` setting)
DISQUS_DISPLAY_COUNTS
Display the number of comments (assuming Disqus comments are active; see
``DISQUS_SITENAME`` settings)
DISQUS_ID_PREFIX_SLUG
Set this to ``True`` if you have configured your article URLs such that the
slug alone will likely not be unique. Ignored if ``DISQUS_NO_ID`` is ``True``.
DISQUS_NO_ID
This theme sets identifiers for each article's comment threads. If you are
switching from a theme that doesn't (such as the Pelican built-in default)
this will result in existing comments getting lost. To prevent this, set
this setting to ``True``.
DISQUS_SITENAME
Set to your Disqus sitename to activate Disqus comments on your site.

You can also enable Disqus comments for pages. This is a per-page setting you
can control by adding a field comments to you pages' metadata. Set it to
enabled to enable comments for that page. Comment-threads for pages will have
an id that is prefixed by ``page-``.

You will probably only use this or the Pelican Comment System; odd results
may come if you try to use both together. See the ``PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM``
setting.
DOCUTIL_CSS
If you're using reStructuredText for writing articles and pages, you can
include the extra CSS styles that are used by the docutils-generated HTML by
setting this to ``True``. This can be done as a global setting or setting it
in the metadata of a specific article or page.
FAVICON
The location of your site's FavIcon, relative to the SITEURL.
FEED_ALL_ATOM
Same as the regular Pelican setting. If set, a link to your Atom feed will
appear in the site's HTML header and as a link in the footer of the site.
FEED_ALL_RSS
Same as the regular Pelican setting. If set, a link to your RSS feed will
appear in the site's HTML header.
GITHUB_REPO_COUNT = 5
See ``GITHUB_USER`` setting.
GITHUB_SHOW_USER_LINK
See ``GITHUB_USER`` setting.
GITHUB_SKIP_FORK = False
See ``GITHUB_USER`` setting.
GITHUB_USER
The theme can show your most recently active GitHub repos in the sidebar. To
enable, set this to you GitHub username. Appearance and behavior can be
controlled using the ``GITHUB_REPO_COUNT``, ``GITHUB_SKIP_FORK``, and
``GITHUB_SHOW_USER_LINK`` variables.
GOOGLE_ANALYTICS
Used to activate "classic" Google Analytics. Set this to your account's Google
Analytics ID. Although this setting doesn't conflict with
``GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_UNIVERSAL``, you will in most cases only use one or the
other.
GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_UNIVERSAL
Used to activate "universal" Google Analytics (this is the new version). Set
this to your account's ID (a number). Also set
``GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_UNIVERSAL_PROPERTY``. Although this setting doesn't
conflict with ``GOOGLE_ANALYTICS``, you will in most cases only use one or
the other.
GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_UNIVERSAL_PROPERTY
Set this to the Google Analytics "property" this site represents. See also
(and set) ``GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_UNIVERSAL``.
HIDE_SIDEBAR = False
Hide the sidebar, and all it's contents. Also review the settings
``DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_ON_SIDEBAR``, ``DISPLAY_RECENT_POSTS_ON_SIDEBAR``,
``DISPLAY_TAGS_ON_SIDEBAR``, ``GITHUB_USER``, ``LINKS``, and
``TWITTER_USERNAME`` variables.
HIDE_SITENAME = False
Hide the sitename in the site navbar.
INDEX_COPY_DATE
Copyright date to display on the index page (homepage) of the site.
JQUERY_JS_IN_HEAD = False
Bootstrap depends on JQuery. Typically, good practice is to load all your
Javascript from the end of your page. However, in certain cases, I've needed
to load JQuery sooner. So this moves loading JQuery from the end of the page
to the header. When active, JQuery is listed before the other scripts in
``CUSTOM_JS_LIST_HEAD``. See also ``CUSTOM_JS_LIST_HEAD``.
LINKS
Extra links to display sidebar. Provide a list of tuples of the form
``('name', 'link')``.
MENUITEMS
Extra items to add to the menu. Provide a list of tuples of the form
``(title, link, icon)``. ``link`` is absolute, so build them using SITEURL,
if needed. ``icon`` here is of the form of the CSS classes to be used; e.g.
``'fa fa-fw fa-pencil'``. ``icon`` can be set to ``None``.

If this is set, the working assumption is that the site you are generating is
a "sub-site".
MENUITEMS_2
Extra items you want added as a sub-menu. Use in conjunction with the
``MENUITEMS_2_AT`` setting. Provide a list of tuples of the form
``(title, link, icon)``. ``link`` is absolute, so build them using SITEURL,
if needed. ``icon`` here is of the form of the CSS classes to be used; e.g.
``'fa fa-fw fa-pencil'``. ``icon`` can be set to ``None``.

This setting is working on the assumption that your generated site in going
into a subdirectory of your "main" site.
MENUITEMS_2_AT
If ``MENUITEMS_2`` is set, under which (main) menu item are these to be
displayed. This should match a "name" of one of the items on ``MENUITEMS``;
if no match is found, these sub-menu items will not be displayed.

When set and Breadcrumbs are enabled, all items on the site are shown to be
under both "home" (linked to at the ``SITE_ROOT_URL``) and ``MENUITEMS_2_AT``
(linked to at ``MENUITEMS_2_AT_LINK``).
MENUITEMS_2_AT_LINK
When set and Breadcrumbs are enabled, all items on the site are shown to be
under both "home" (linked to at the ``SITE_ROOT_URL``) and ``MENUITEMS_2_AT``
(linked to at ``MENUITEMS_2_AT_LINK``).
NAVBAR_ON_TOP
If True, the navigation menu is on top. If False, the navigation menu is
vertical on the left side of the page. Default is False.
NEIGHBORS
Activates the links to the next and previous articles, both in the "all
posts" index and the category-specific index. Requires the
`neighbors <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pelican-neighbors>`_ to be both
installed and activated (i.e. listed under ``PLUGINS``).
OPEN_GRAPH_FB_APP_ID
You can use this setting to provide a Facebook *app id*. See the
``USE_OPEN_GRAPH`` setting.
OPEN_GRAPH_IMAGE
A default image to use with Open Graph. This is a filepath relative to your
SITEURL. See the ``USE_OPEN_GRAPH`` setting.
PAGINATOR_LIMIT = 8
Number of page number links to appear of the main "index" page of your
blog. The default of 8 results in showing a link to page 1, links the
three previous pages (8 divided by 2 and rounded down), a number
representing the current page, links to the next three pages, and a link
to the last page.
PDF_PROCESSOR
.
PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM = False
Set this to ``True`` to active the
`pelican_comment_system <https://bernhard.scheirle.de/posts/2014/March/29/static-comments-via-email/>`_.

The Pelican Comment System has
`further settings <https://github.com/Scheirle/pelican_comment_system/blob/master/doc/installation.md>`_
that are not used directly by the theme.

You will probably only use this or Disqus; odd results may come if you try to
use both together. See the ``DISQUS_SITENAME`` setting.
PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_DISPLAY_COUNTS = True
Whether to display the number of comments
PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_EMAIL_DOMAIN
The domain name of the email where you want the comments to be emailed to
(i.e. the part after the ``@`` sign). See the
``PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_EMAIL_USER`` and ``PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM``
settings.
PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_EMAIL_USER
The username of the email where you want the comments to be emailed to (i.e.
the part before the ``@`` sign). See the
``PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_EMAIL_DOMAIN`` and ``PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM``
setting.
PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_FEED, PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_FEED_ALL
Used internally to generate links to the Comment RSS/Atoms feeds.
PELICAN_COMMENT_SYSTEM_IDENTICON_SIZE = 72
The size of the Identicons generated by the Pelican Comment System.

PRJCT_TODO, PRJCT_DONE = prjct.todo_export.to_html_dicts()
PRJCT_PROJECTS = prjct.multi_source.project_list()
PRJCT_ACTIVE_PROJECTS = prjct.multi_source.active_project_list()
PRJCT_SOMEDAY_PROJECTS = prjct.config.someday_projects()
PRJCT_COMPLETED_PROJECTS = prjct.config.completed_projects()
PRJCT_DESC = prjct.descriptions.to_html_dict(markdown_extension_config=MARKDOWN['extension_configs'])
PRJCT_VERSION = prjct.__version__
PRJCT_FOOTER_URL = prjct.__url__
```

Also add prjct to our direct templates list.

See the ``PRJCT`` setting.
PRJCT_COMPLETED_PROJECTS
A list of *active* projects. Used to sort projects on the main prjct page.
See the ``PRJCT`` setting.
PRJCT_DESC
A dictionary of descriptions for each project, where the key is the name of
the project, and will match the *tag* page where the output appears. The
return value is assumed to be a valid HTML segment. See the ``PRJCT``
setting.

A dictionary of done to-do items for each project, where the key is the name
of the project, and will match the *tag* page where the output appears. The
return value is assumed to be a valid HTML segment. See the ``PRJCT``

return value is assumed to be a valid HTML segment. See the ``PRJCT``
setting.
PRJCT_VERSION = ''
*prjct* version displayed in footer. See the ``PRJCT`` setting.
PYGMENTS_STYLE = 'native'
This setting is currently ignored, and my preferred Pygments style is
included directly into the Seafoam CSS.
RECENT_POST_COUNT = 5
Number of recent posts to display on the sidebar. See the
``DISPLAY_RECENT_POSTS_ON_SIDEBAR`` setting.
RELATED_POSTS_TEXT = 'Related Posts:'
Header for related posts listing. Requires that the
`Related Posts Plugin <https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins/tree/master/related_posts>`_
be active.
SITELOGO
Link to the site logo (displayed in the navbar). This is relative to the
SITEURL.
SITELOGO_SIZE
The width of the site logo in the navbar. Can be set to any valid CSS value
(i.e. %, em, px, etc). I have had good luck setting this to ``100%``.
SITENAME
The name of your site, displayed in the navbar.
SITEURL
Same as the Pelican setting. Set this to where this Pelican site is actually
hosted. Also see the ``SITE_ROOT_URL`` setting.
SITE_ROOT_URL = SITEURL
Use this if you're hosting a subsite of some sort. This is where the links in
logo in the navbar and the home icon in the breadcrumbs will point to. See
also the ``MENUITEMS_2_AT`` setting.
SOCIAL
A list of your social media sites to be listed in the sidebar. Should he a
list of tuples in the form ('social network name', 'full link to profile').
The theme will display the logo of the network. See the ``HIDE_SIDEBAR``
setting.
TAGS_URL
Same as the Pelican setting.
THEME_STATIC_DIR
Same as the Pelican setting.
TWITTER_USERNAME
You can optionally provide a this which will be used to set the Twitter
username for the site and for the content creator.
TWITTER_WIDGET_ID
The theme can show your twitter timeline in the sidebar. To enable, provide a
``TWITTER_USERNAME`` and a ``TWITTER_WIDGET_ID``.

To get a ``TWITTER_WIDGET_ID``, go to:
`https://twitter.com/settings/widgets <https://twitter.com/settings/widgets>`_
and select *Create new*. You'll find the ``TWITTER_WIDGET_ID`` under the html
or in the site url:

https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/TWITTER_WIDGET_ID/edit
TYPOGRIFY
Whether to activate Typography. Tyopgraphy is a library that automatically
adds a number of typographical flourishes. The necessary CSS is automatically
included in the *seafoam* CSS.

The Typography Python library will needs to be installed, which is
installable via pip: ``pip install typogrify``

Note that with Pelican 3.6, activating both the Pelican Comment System and
Typography at the same time cause issues. This issue was fixed in Pelican
3.7.
USE_OPEN_GRAPH = True
In order to make the Facebook "like" button and other social sharing options
work better, the template contains Open Graph metatags like
``<meta property="og:type" content="article"/>``. You can disable them by
setting this to ``False``.

See also ``OPEN_GRAPH_FB_APP_ID``, and ``OPEN_GRAPH_FB_APP_ID``
settings.

It may also be helpful to review the
`settings for Pelican itself <http://docs.getpelican.com/en/3.7.1/settings.html>`_.

On articles, the theme also looks for the ``image`` metadata setting to provide
the "featured image* for the article.


Known Issues
------------

- the ``setup.py`` file for this project does not run on Python 2.7. However,
wheels of this project are "universal" and so can be generated by Python 3
and subsequently installed by Python 2.7.
- when installing on versions of Python before 3.4 (when the ``pathlib`` module
was added to the standard library), `pathlib2
<https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pathlib2>`_ is an additional dependency. This,
in turn, depends on `scandir <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/scandir>`_,
which requires a C compiler to install. If you (like I), don't have a C
compiler already set up on your Windows machines, you sidestep that issue by
downloading a pre-build wheel from `Christoph Gohlke
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#scandir>`_ and installing
``scandir`` this way before you try and install ``seafoam``.
- activating both Typogrify and the Pelican Comment System on Pelican 3.6
causes issues. This issue has been fixed in Pelican 3.7.
