I did something to my environment and my octopress setup exploded. So, I
decided it was time to move on. I've been wanting to toss octopress for
something less quirky for a while. So now I'm using
Pelican with the Elegant
is pretty simple, though I've had trouble with the makefiles and fabfiles it
generated. Rather than using them, I'm just invoking Pelican myself:
pelican content -s pelicanconf.py -t themes/pelican-elegant-1.3
Easy enough! The Elegant theme is the best I've found so far (it seems to be a
pretty rarely used tool), but I'm not happy with its visual style. I'm still a
fan of the
theme, which I maintain.
I'll probably end up porting it to Pelican, possibly with some tweaks.
To my knowledge, no URIs should have changed in the migration. If you find a
please email me. Cool URIs don't
change. One peculiar change is
that the 'Archives' link now goes to
/archives.html. However, I have set it
up such that
/blog/archives is still valid.
My configuration is
available on github if you
want to take a look.
Proudly powered by
Pelican, which takes great advantage of Python.
The theme is by
Smashing Magazine, thanks!
