What is iris?
Iris is a pelican theme based on Flask webpage This theme is very simple and easy to read, perfect for a minimalist blog without much things and beautiful source code syntax (Thank you pygments!) Also uses various fonts:
- For social icons: Font awesome
- For the title: The girl next door
- For the headers: Marcellus
- For the soure code: Inconsolata
Some of the variables that could be used:
DISQUS_SITENAME: For the disqus comments
For the analytics we have two flavours, one is Go Squared
GOSQUARED_SITENAME: For the Go squared analytics
And the other is Google analytics Google analytics has various forms. The basic one is:
GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_CODE: this is the code of GA, something similar to:
If you have analytics across domains you can put this setting:
GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_DOMAIN = "xlarrakoetxea.org"
And if you have upper domain level (com, org, co.uk...)
GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_DOMAIN_UP = True
To install, go to your pelican theme directory and clone the repo. For example:
$ cd /home/slok/.virtualenvs/blog/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pelican/themes/ $ git clone https://github.com/slok/iris.git
Set the variable
iris in your pelican settings, like this:
THEME = "iris"

`something`. This renders inline source code. So I added
tt to the
css also, not only
code like most themes. Example:
