Eevee the Pokémon

This week I pushed the 0.0.3 update for my Pelican theme Eevee containing new and improved styling for share buttons and adding the ability to use Muut instead of Disqus for comments.

Share button changes

The original styling of the share buttons wasn’t particularly pretty.

Eevee's original share button styling

They badly needed a make over, and so they were restyled to be more prominent, look less out of place and randomly pasted in to the page and to have a colour scheme that matches the social media site they share to.

These buttons appear on articles and pages, but when viewing an article with DISQUS_SITENAME or MUUT_SITENAME enabled a fourth button is shown that links to the comments section of the current article.

Comments powered by Muut

To enable commenting with Muut, simply modify pelicanconf.py and set the Muut site name.

MUUT_SITENAME = 'somethinghere'

This will automatically cause Eevee to enable the Muut comment template which will styled similarly to how the Disqus comments section is styled.

Please be aware that if DISQUS_SITENAME and MUUT_SITENAME are configured, Disqus will be prioritized over Muut and therefore only the Disqus template will be loaded.
