My first experiments with Pelican to run this blog have been good - it’s a great way to publish static pages quickly and I find it much easier to manage than Octopress.
It’s built on a version of the Pelican-svbtle theme. There were some problems with the theme in its current form, so I’ve forked CNBorn’s already adjusted version and cleaned out some of the LESS and templates - my fork is on GitHub.
However, this theme isn’t going to stay. Paul has been working on some flat HTML based on Bootstrap to make a new clean theme. Once that’s stable, I’ll plug in some Pelican / Jinja2 tags and hopefully this site will have a new clean theme soon.
