The Varia website is made with Pelican, a static site generator written in Python. This means that the website is first generated on a computer (using Python, Jinja and Pelican) into a set of html pages, files and images. This set of documents is then uploaded to the server.
One of the things that Pelican uses is plugins. They are used to add extra features to the generation process of the website.
In this repository there is a folder called ‘plugins’ and another one called ‘plugins-custom’.
The first one, ‘plugins’, is linked to the offical collection of plugins from the Pelican project ‘pelican-plugins’.
The other one, ‘plugins-custom’, consists of plugins that we wrote ourself.
To clone both the varia.website and pelican-plugins repository, add the --recurse-submodules option in your git clone command:
git clone https://git.vvvvvvaria.org/varia/varia.website.git --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
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
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
This can be done either locally or via the gitlab interface by creating a new file.
