Gitoyen website

The gitoyen website is build on pelican, this repo contains the source code and content needed to generate the static website.

Getting started

Pelican is based on python in order to make the site works you will need at least python and pip installed. Once this has been done run the following commands into this repository folder:


If you want to keep things isolated on your machine you will have to install virtualenv, this step is not mandatory but is recommended. On debian just type: apt-get install python-virtualenv

Create a virtualenv in the root of the repository: virtualenv ./venv

Source the virtualenv in order to isolate your current session: source venv/bin/activate, you can disable it later by typing deactivate in the same shell session.

Install and run

  • pip install -e . will install the dependencies needed by pelican
  • gitoyen serve will serve the website in development mode (i.e: livereload, local port)
