AutoLoader Plugin 1.2.0 for Pelican Released

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

AutoLoader is a “meta plugin” in that it doesn’t directly affect your Pelican site, but rather works to make your other plugins better. Previously, the plugin was set to autoload plugins in my minchin.​pelican.​plugins namespace, and thus will extend that to my minchin.​pelican.​readers namespace.

This change is done in preparation for my (shortly) pending release of a microblogging plugin for Pelican.


The simplest way to upgrade (and install) AutoLoader is to use pip:

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


There are no configuration changes needed.

This Release

This release is v1.2.0, released July 11, 2023.

  • feature: include autoloading from additional “private” namespace of minchin.pelican.readers.

Known Issues

  • plugins activated by AutoLoader do not show running pelican-plugins. (pelican-plugins was a script added by Pelican 4.5 to show namespace plugins currently active). AutoLoader however should be itself listed (although likely as pelican.plugins.autoloader).
