Pelican theme, based on Brownstone.

Pelican Themes

This repository contains a theme for Pelican. I'm probably going to issue a PR to the main Pelican library once it's stabilized. The instructions below aren't quite correct for using this theme, but they should be close enough. I'm sure you can figure it out.

A live version can be seen at http://gazeboist.com.

Using Themes

These instructions assume you have already read all the Pelican documentation, have a working site, and would now like to apply a non-default theme.

First, choose a location to hold your themes. For this example, we'll use the directory ~/pelican-themes, but yours could be different. Clone the pelican-themes repository to that location on your local machine:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-themes ~/pelican-themes

Now you should have your pelican-themes repository stored at ~/pelican-themes/.

To use one of the themes, edit your Pelican settings file to include this line:

THEME = "/home/user/pelican-themes/theme-name"

So, for instance, to use the mnmlist theme, you would edit your settings file to include:

THEME = "/home/user/pelican-themes/mnmlist"

Save the changes to your settings file and then regenerate your site by using the Makefile you should already have set up using pelican-quickstart:

make html

Themes can also be specified directly via the -t ~/pelican-themes/theme-name parameter to the pelican command. If you want to edit your theme, make sure that any edits you make are made to the copy stored in ~/pelican-themes/theme-name. Any changes made to files stored in your site's output directory will be deleted the next time you generate your site.
