What is bootlex?

Bootlex is a theme for the pelican static blog generator. It is based on a modified bootstrap and works nicely with a lot of pelican features.

There are some settings that will make it work flawlessly:

Your SITEURLmust have a trailing slash. You will also definetely need RELATIVE_URLS = False for the theme to properly work. I would recommend the following url config, that I am using with my theme, and seems to work quite good:

ARTICLE_URL = ('{slug}/')
ARTICLE_SAVE_AS = ('{slug}.html')
PAGE_URL = ('{slug}/')
PAGE_SAVE_AS = ('{slug}.html')
AUTHOR_URL = ('author/{name}/')
TAG_URL = ('tag/{name}/')

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.html -f
RewriteRule ^(.+)/$ $1.html [L]


You can make use of the following settings:

  • Pages (will be included in the menu automatically)
  • MENUITEMS (will be included aswell)
  • LINKS (as the above)
  • GOOGLE_ANALYTICS (will be included automatically, if set)
