A pelican theme based on 'notmyidea'

This is a theme for the static site generator pelican. It's based on the theme 'notmyidea' which is included in pelican.

The initial commit already has the social media icons removed since their copyright is not entirely sorted out: https://github.com/getpelican/pelican/issues/2179

Using this theme

Download the folder notmyidea. Run pelican with the argument -t /path/to/notmyidea or put the line THEME = '/path/to/notmyidea' into the pelicanconf.py file. Take a look at the pelicanconf.py provided in this repo to configure theme-specific features.

Add the tag ArticlePic: images/picture.png to your article or page to show wide pictures at the top of the page between the navigation bar and the beginning of the article/page.


  • mobile friendly (but not highly optimized)
  • logo and favicon possible
  • easy to change colors
  • comes with a dark theme (setting can optionally be saved to local storage)
  • supports the plugin simple-footnotes
  • light bot protection for emails addresses (they can be encrypted so that bots which don't use javascript won't get the email address)
  • Optionally show a picture above the article/page title (there can be a default and the picture can be overwritten/removed individually per page).
