This is pelicanfly, a plugin for Pelican
that lets you type things like
i ♥ :fa-coffee: in your
Markdown documents and have it
come out as little Font Awesome icons in the browser.
It provides a minimal extension to Markdown and a plugin for Pelican.
The Pelican plugin hacks in some static assets to make this work with Pelican "out of the box". If you just want the Markdown extension, it is available separately.
It's not hard, just install via pip:
(env)$ pip install pelicanfly
Then add to your Pelican settings, under
PLUGINS as follows:
PLUGINS = [ # ... 'pelicanfly', # ... ]
If you have followed these steps correctly, next time you build your Pelican
blog, the plugin will do its magic and convert all the
:fa-heart: style tags
into proper nice little Font Awesome icons. Job done!
I try to keep this repo up to date with FontAwesome, but if it's not, feel free
to submit a PR (the handy
update_fontawesome.sh script to download will do some
of the lifting to download their assets).
