My previous blogging system was wordpress, unfortunately a disaster ensued, the hosting service had a security breach, and my blog was a victim of phishing. So to ensure my domain name was not suspended I decided, delete it

Some time ago had heard of Pelican, but never I had deployed it in production , so this was an opportunity to do so, then I tell them my experience.

How to install pelican


Pelican is very easy to install using pip in virtualenv.

[~]# pip install virtualenv
[~]# pip install virtualenvwrapper

Create a directory named .virtualenvs in your $HOME

[~]# mkdir .virtualenvs

add in your .bashrc

export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs
source /usr/bin/ 

and then simply do:

$ pip install pelican
$ pip install Markdown

It only remains to create your environment blogging with the command pelican-quickstart

$ pelican-quickstart
