minchin.pelican.themes.minchindotca 1.1.0

Pelican theme, first used for Minchin.ca.

Minchin dot CA is a theme for Pelican, a static site generator written in Python.

The Minchin dot CA theme is based on Bootstrap 3, and was first used at Minchin.ca.

Installation

The easiest way to install the Minchin dot CA theme is through the use of pip. This will also install the required dependencies automatically.

pip install minchin.pelican.themes.minchindotca

Then, in your pelicanconf.py file, import the modele, use the built in function to specify your theme location, set the default colour scheme, set the image processing patterns used, and add some Jinja filters that the theme uses:

from minchin.pelican.themes import minchindotca

THEME = minchindotca.get_path()
BOOTSTRAP_THEME = 'minchindotca'

IMAGE_PROCESS = {
  'article-feature': ["scale_in 848 848 True"],
  'index-feature': ["scale_in 263 263 True"],
}

# Jijna2 filters
def datetimefilter(value, format='%Y/%m/%d %H:%M'):
    """convert a datetime to a different format."""
    return value.strftime(format)


def article_date(value):
    """Converts a date to the format we want it displayed on the article
       template.
    """
    return value.strftime('%A, %B %-d, %Y')


def breaking_spaces(value):
    """Converts non-breaking spaces to regular spaces."""
    return value.replace('\u00A0', ' ')


JINJA_FILTERS = {
  'datetimefilter': datetimefilter,
  'article_date':   article_date,
  'breaking_spaces': breaking_spaces,
}

You will may also need to configure the theme through the use of additional settings (see below).

Requirements

Minchin dot ca requires Pelican and the image_process plugin. This can be manually installed with pip:

pip install pelican minchin.pelican.plugins.image_process

Additional Settings

Details coming. In the meantime, refer to the settings on the Bootstrap 3 theme.

Credits

Original theme developed by Daan Debie.

The idea that a theme could be installed as a Python package by Jeff Forcier’s Alabaster theme for Sphinx.
