Pelican is a static site generator, written in Python.

  • Write content in reStructuredText or Markdown using your editor of choice
  • Includes a simple command line tool to (re)generate site files
  • Easy to interface with version control systems and web hooks
  • Completely static output is simple to host anywhere


Pelican currently supports:

  • Chronological content (e.g., articles, blog posts) as well as static pages
  • 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
  • Fast rebuild times due to content caching and selective output writing

Check out Pelican's documentation for further information.
