pelican-mode is an Emacs minor mode for editing articles and pages in Pelican sites.

It's intended to be used alongside a major mode for the Pelican document. Currently supported formats are Markdown, reStructuredText, AsciiDoc, and Org. It also assumes you've set up Pelican with pelican-quickstart or something like it. In particular it expects:

Quick Guide

To enable by default on all text files in a Pelican site:

(require 'pelican-mode)

Or with use-package and deferred loading:

(use-package pelican-mode
  :demand :after (:any org rst markdown-mode adoc-mode)

Or, register pelican-mode or pelican-mode-enable-if-site as hook functions for more direct control.


If the commands which invoke make can find the Makefile but can't find pelican, your exec-path may not be set right. Try out exec-path-from-shell.
