This is the Pelican source for my Can't Hack blog. I can't see there being anything terribly interesting here except maybe to poke around some unpublished draft posts that might be checked in.
On a bare bones FreeBSD box, you will need to install a few prerequisites:
$ sudo pkg install rsync gmake py27-pip
Then you can install Pelican itself:
$ pip install --user pelican
And to ensure the theme is pulled in:
$ git submodule update --init
You should also ensure that the pelican-plugins repo is checked out in the same directory as the repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins.git
Finally, ensure that reST smart quotes are switched on in
[restructuredtext parser] smart_quotes=yes
The makefile should be portable, so it'll work with both GNU make and BSD make.
