Beginning with version 3.0, Pelican supports plugins. Plugins are a way to add features to Pelican without having to directly modify the Pelican core. Starting with 3.2, all plugins (including the ones previously in the core) are moved here, so this is the central place for all plugins.
How to use plugins
Easiest way to install and use these plugins is cloning this repo:
git clone https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins
and activating the ones you want in your settings file:
PLUGIN_PATH = 'path/to/pelican-plugins' PLUGINS = ['assets', 'sitemap', 'gravatar']
PLUGIN_PATH can be a path relative to your settings file or an absolute path.
Alternatively, if plugins are in an importable path, you can omit
and list them:
PLUGINS = ['assets', 'sitemap', 'gravatar']
or you can
import the plugin directly and give that:
import my_plugin PLUGINS = [my_plugin, 'assets']
Please refer to the
Readme file in a plugin's folder for detailed information about
Contributing a plugin
