Pelican Plugins

Summary Plugin 1.2.0 for Pelican Released

Summary is a plugin for Pelican, a static site generator written in Python.

Summary allows easy, variable length summaries directly embedded within the body of your articles.

This Release

This release, version 1.2.0, makes a few fixes to allow the plugin to support Pelican 4 and also supports my autoloader.


To upgrade, simply use pip:

pip install minchin.pelican.plugins.summary --upgrade

The autoloader plugin should be automatically installed.

If you are using Pelican 4.5+, the plugin will automatally be loaded.

If you are an earlier version of Pelican, or non-namespace plugins, you will need to add the auto-loader to your list of plugins (and no longer need to list the summary plugin):


    # others
    # summary plugin no longer needs to be listed


Thanks to Henry Swainson for the pull request that forms the basis of most of this release!

Personal Note

With this, I’m finally able to upgrade to Pelican 4! It’s been a long time coming…
