Announcing: SNafuHall!

Waffled for several months over wether to embrace the nettle of publishing, again. Then Rhe needed a simple splash page site for http://showerdash.com and I had to look at how to do that.

Some exploration led to Pelican which has led (after some time spent whacking at it), to this site.

Links I have found useful:

my own local of:

Configuring Pelican Markdown Extensions #

This took me a bit to figure out. You instantate the extension and insert it into pelican's MARKDOWN config variable. Here's how I'm doing it:

# import markdown extensions from local directory
import markdowninclude, cell_row_span, mdx_custom_span_class
import mdx_superscript, mdx_del_ins
import mdx_urlize

# markdown extensions
md_markdown_include = markdowninclude.MarkdownInclude(
    configs={'base_path':'content/inc/', 'encoding': 'utf-8', 'headingOffset': '1', 'inheritHeadingDepth': True, }

md_cellrow = cell_row_span.CellRowSpanExtension()
md_spanclass = mdx_custom_span_class.CustomSpanClassExtension()

md_urlize = mdx_urlize.UrlizeExtension()
md_super = mdx_superscript.SuperscriptExtension()
md_di = mdx_del_ins.DelInsExtension()
