First Blog With Pelican

Update 2018-03-18: I’ve since moved to Hugo

This is my first blog post using Pelican and Markdown. A lot of the content below is to be used as reference mostly for myself and any others who are exploring using Python3, Pelican, & Markdown to create a blog.

How to get up and running

mkvirtualenv personal_blog
pip install pelican
pip install markdown
pip install fabric3
pip install ghp-import
pip install webassets
npm install less -g
cd Dropbox/projects/python/personal_blog/
git clone https://github.com/r-richmond/rirchmond.github.io.git
git submodule add https://github.com/textbook/bulrush.git
git submodule add https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-plugins.git

Running commands using Fab3 which help prepare posts

fab rebuild
fab preview
fab serve
fab clean
fab gh_pages
fab reserve
