As a member of the Pelican dev team, I think I speak for all of us when I saw we were thrilled to see such a high-profile site running on Pelican. The folks at kernel.org were even kind enough to mention it on their new site: https://www.kernel.org/pelican.html

Those of us in the #pelican IRC channel had a rousing cheer and virtual clinking of the glasses. :^)

If anyone has questions about Pelican, please feel free to ask here or on our IRC channel.

Edit: And if you're going to PyCon in Santa Clara, CA this month, hit us up on Twitter (@getpelican) to get info about our pre-PyCon meetup.




Congrats! Pelican is a great software. Use it together with Github-pages and you do not need any hosting space for your blog/site.


Any guides on making a pure "portfolio" sort of page, no blog whatsoever? All of the examples that I have seen have a blog component. I am just looking to make some basic header/nav/content/footer type templates. Thanks for your work on Pelican! I found it two days ago while looking for a static site generator and I was excited to see it mentioned in the news.


That's certainly been requested and is coming in the next version, hopefully to be released sometime this month. Thanks to the hard work done by Bruno, one of the other dev team members, you will soon be able to override pages by specifying a source file and a destination URL: https://github.com/getpelican/pelican/pull/623

With this in place, you should be able to populate your site with pages (e.g., /content/pages/{index.md,about.md,portfolio.md,contact.md,etc}) without any chronological blog content.


Getting a 404 on getpelican.com. The github site [1] has some info at least.
