Extended authors plugin

The extended authors plugin for Pelican provides a context generator so you can include a biography with an author. It is compatible with the default author pages generator, so there is very little to modify.

How to install/use

  • Create a 'authors' folder in your content folder or set settings.AUTHOR_DIR
  • In your Pelican settings file:
    • ARTICLE_EXCLUDES = ('pages', 'authors')
    • PAGE_EXCLUDES = ('authors',)
    • PLUGINS = ('plugins.pelican_extended_authors',)
  • For each author you want to have a biography, create a file in the authors folder. The file need to have a slug property, corresponding with the author's slug.
  • Include the data in your author.html and authors.html templates. You can print the biography with: {{ authors_info.get(author) }}, where author corresponds with an instantiated author object which should be provided by pelican.
