Varia website


The folder ‘plugins’ is linked to the Pelican project ‘pelican-plugins’ repository. To clone both the and pelican-plugins repository, add the --recurse-submodules option in your git clone command:

git clone --recurse-submodules


$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt


You can make use of the makefile, for example by running the following command to start a python server:

$ make devserver

Visit the website at localhost:8000

Update submodules

We are currently using two submodules:

To update these submodules within your (already) cloned repository, first init the submodule, and then update it:

cd /path/to/submodule 

git submodule init

git submodule update

Posting Content

We’re using Pelican to generate a static website. The main way to add content to the website is by making ‘posts’ in the folder content.

This can be done either locally or via the gitlab interface by creating a new file.

Make sure that each article contains at least the following at the top of the document:

Title: een nieuw initiatief
Date: 2017-07-07 18:32
Category: news
Tags: event, workshop
slug: the-name-of-the-html-page
lang: nl OR en

Articles are written in a markup language called markdown. Here is an overview of the syntax. You can also use the online editor in gitlab to help you.
