Moving webpage to a Pelican powered static blog.

Posted on Mon 26 December 2016 in Tech

The old webpage had started to look kind of dated. Since I didnt want to spend too much time mucking around with html/css, I ended up setting up a static blog type webpage with pelican using the Flex theme.

Some great instructions on getting it up and running is available on and on and on

In general, I was pretty happy with the Flex theme. But, it didnt play well with MathJax for some reason on the main page (the javascript was getting truncated on the main page). Anyway, since I was too lazy to figure out why this was happening, I ended up explicitly adding the javascript to the base.html for the Flex theme, and removing auto-insert from the render_math plugin. Now it works fine, I think.
