solar pelican theme

Solar is a pelican theme designed for https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com. It is an attempt to radically reduce the energy use the associated with accessing our content.

The theme is designed to be extremely light and give visitors insight into the material conditions of the hardware the website runs on.

To this end we've developed a few custom pelican plugins and additional scripts.
