Pelican-sober-iv is a modification of the original pelican-sober theme.

Key differences are:

  • Theme translated to Russian
  • List of tags added to side panel
  • Main page consists of article summaries
  • Added Facebook Comments integration (have to add PELICAN_SOBER_IV_FACEBOOK_APP_ID config variable)
  • Fixed some issues with social icons

This theme is used in my blog.

Below is README of the original Pelican-sober


Pelican-sober is a very light theme focused on readability :

  • Integration of TinyTypo
  • Utilisation of the font Source Sans Pro
  • Option to fade out sidebar to focus on article reading

This theme provides also classical features like Google Analytics, Twitter, Disqus and Pygments integration.



Sidebar options

  • PELICAN_SOBER_ABOUT = "My name is Brian" option allows you to add a short About block in sidebar
  • PELICAN_SOBER_STICKY_SIDEBAR = True | False option allows you to set the sidebar fixed (following scroll and fading out)


Twitter cards

Twitter card metadata are useful to provides a better overview of your post when a tweet point to it.

If you provide one of the two settings below, twitter card metadata will be automatically added for each post.

  • PELICAN_SOBER_TWITTER_CARD_CREATOR = '__fle__' (author twitter account)
  • PELICAN_SOBER_TWITTER_CARD_SITE = '__company__' (website/company twitter account)


You can’t perform that action at this time.
