  • Integration with external services (e.g., Google Analytics and Disqus)
  • Site themes (created using Jinja2 templates)
  • Publication of articles in multiple languages
  • Generation of Atom and RSS feeds
  • Syntax highlighting via Pygments
  • Importing existing content from WordPress, Dotclear, and other services
