Pelican Tips


This is a essential tool for using GitHub Page as Pelican blog. With this tool, I don’t need to manage two repo; one for generator, and the other for output, the actual blog. Because this does all the messy things. You just need to make github and that’s all.

It took a lot of time to find how to manage Pelican blog with Github, and the answer was on the right by me. Let’s read the document carefully, and don’t waste time.

In order to develop/customize theme of Pelican, Jinja2, I need. For using VIM, I found Vim-Jinja2-Syntax.


cd ~./vim_runtime/source_not_forked
git clone
git add Vim-Jinja2-Syntax
git commit -m "add jinja plugin"
