Pelican Plugins

Beginning with version 3.0, Pelican supports plugins. Plugins are a way to add features to Pelican without having to directly modify the Pelican core. Starting with 3.2, all plugins (including the ones previously in the core) have been moved to this repository, so this is the central place for all plugins.

How to use plugins

The easiest way to install and use these plugins is to clone this repo:

git clone --recursive

and activate the ones you want in your settings file:

PLUGIN_PATHS = ['path/to/pelican-plugins']
PLUGINS = ['assets', 'sitemap', 'gravatar']

PLUGIN_PATHS can be a path relative to your settings file or an absolute path.

Alternatively, if plugins are in an importable path, you can omit PLUGIN_PATHS and list them:

PLUGINS = ['assets', 'sitemap', 'gravatar']

or you can import the plugin directly and give that:

import my_plugin
PLUGINS = [my_plugin, 'assets']
