Advanced Pelican: Self-Configuring Themes, and Seafoam 2.6.0 Released

Seafoam

I’ve just released a groundbreaking version of my website theme Seafoam; I believe this is the first Pelican theme designed to configure itself!

The root of this magic is that the theme has actually been packaged as a namespace plugin for Pelican. If you’re running a sufficiently recent version of Pelican (i.e. v4.5 or newer), Pelican will automatically load the Seafoam plugin; if you’re using an older version of Pelican (or other, non-namespace plugins), you’ll need to add the Seafoam plugin to you configuration:

Seafoam 2.0.4 Pelican Theme Released

Seafoam

Version 2.0.4 of Seafoam has been released.

Seafoam is the Pelican theme I use for this site, but published to PyPI in the hope that it will be useful to others.

This release changes the name of the project to seafoam from the unwieldy minchin.pelican.themes.minchindotca. It also add support for the Pelican Comment System, removes the need to define Jinja2 filters in your configuration file, updates to Font Awesome v4.7, and several design fixes as well. Code is updated to work with Pelican v3.7 and Jinja v2.9.
