AutoLoader Plugin 1.2.1 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.

This release of Autoloader is to fix a crashing bug when no plugins in the minchin.​pelican.​readers namespace are loaded.

I also updated a number of other plugins to blacklist v1.2.0 to avoid these crashes.

This actually came about because someone emailed me a bug report. So if you have issues, please feel free to reach out.


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 v1.2.1, released August 9, 2023.

  • bug: don’t break if no plugins exist in the namespace you are trying to load from.

Other Plugins Updated

These plugins were updated to blacklist the previous version of Autoloader (v1.2.0), and to add autoloading support if it wasn’t previously in place.
