The base theme I have chosen as the basis for my site is Pure Pelican Theme. It is possible that I may want or need to modify the core theme styles and templates, so I am going to fork it on Github, then clone that repository to be used locally. I am going to install the theme as a submodule of the va.nce.me website
git clone email@example.com:vanceb/va.nce.me cd va.nce.me mkdir themes git submodule add firstname.lastname@example.org:vanceb/pure-single themes/pure-single
Configuring Pelican and the themes
The Pelican config file
pelicanconf.py allows you to configure pelican for your site including basics that the core Pelican uses as well as some variables that the theme can use. You can check out my
pelicanconf.py file in github.
