Installing a pelican theme and configuring pelican

Theme

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 git@github.com:vanceb/va.nce.me
cd va.nce.me
mkdir themes
git submodule add git@github.com: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.
