An IDE for Pelican sites.
Installing pelicide should be easy:
$ pip install pelicide
However, pelicide hasn't been released to pypi yet. To build a working pelicide install, there are some requirements:
- Python 2.7 (unfortunately, not all dependencies are python 3 compatible)
- Node.js (required to host jspm)
- git (required to get the actual code and the dependencies)
Once those dependencies are installed, you can get the pelicide source code, install it's dependencies using jspm and pip:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:iksteen/pelicide.git $ cd pelicide $ jspm install $ python setup.py develop
Create a project file (pelicide.ini) in your pelican directory:
[pelicide] pelicanconf=pelicanconf.py python=~/.pyenv/pelican/bin/python deploy=make rsync_upload tempdir=tmp
All settings are optional (in fact, you can run pelicide without a project
file). The default value for the
pelicanconf setting is pelicanconf.py,
the default python interpreter is the interpreter used to execute pelicide.
The specified python interpreter will be used to set up the pelican environment. This can be useful if you install pelicide in a different virtual environment than the one you build your site with.
The deploy option specifies what command to execute to deploy (or publish) your site. You can specify any shell command. The command will be executed in the directory your pelican config file resides in.
By default, pelicide will create a temporary directory to store the output files in (and cleans it up when pelicide exits). If you have a lot of media files that need to be copied and you restart pelicide often, you may want to specify a persistent output using tempdir.
You can also create a global configuration file in ~/.config/pelicide/pelicide.ini. This config file will be loaded first and can contain the same options as the project file.
Now, start pelicide:
Pelicide will output a lot of debug information (in fact, it is the debug output of pelican which builds your site into a temporary directory) and finally it will tell you to go to a website:
Pelicide is running. Please visit http://127.0.0.1:6300/
Note that if you run pelicide without a project file and without a global configuration file, it will look for pelicanconf.py in the current directory and it will use the python interpreter used to run pelicide itself.
