(absolutely not inspired by Pelican. I didn’t just perform pip install pelican in my nikola-py2 virtualenv. And that below is not a copy-paste from a terminal running pelican-quickstart. There is nothing below, besides another paragraph of text. And just one paragraph. Any more is a product of your imagination.)
pip install pelican
(nikola-py2)[kwpolska@kw-cassandra /tmp]% pelican-quickstart

We could (and should) ask some questions from here, and some different ones… it’d be a nice addition!
PS. I still like Nikola more. Pelican feels just empty, bland and featureless to me…
Having tried Pelican before using NIkola, I thought it was odd that it didn't to this, and was little surprised that my blog was building just fine but as "Nikola Test" or whatever until I ran through the config file.
Good defaults matter :-)
pip install pelican!!! What a heresy!! ;-) ja ja...
pip install pelican in a virtualenv named nikola-py2 is even more of a heresy!
Hey @ralsina, I think @Kwpolska deserves a punishment!
Uncomment settings which are configurable from init.py:SAMPLE_CONF
If the settings are commented, changing them during nikola init, by
modifying SAMPLE_CONF has no effect. This is not expected.
Fix #1080 -- Make `nikola init` ask for stuff.
