Additional Hack


The footer can include several icons(email, github, twitter, rss) according to your settings. Put the settings in GLOBAL_CONTEXT variable in conf.py. Example:

    'email': '[email protected]',
    'github': 'lotabout',


Also, the theme has several preset color themes, it will be automatically set according to the tags of your post. However, you should specify what color for what tag:

    'theme_tag': {'green':'tech','blue':'write','red':'life'},

In the above setting, if a post had a tag of 'tech', the page will show up in 'green' theme.

gray, blue, gree, red themes are supported.
