Nikola's Zen theme finally released

  |   Source   |   Minimap

Just a quick update... Some weeks ago I blogged about my new Nikola's theme family called Zen. In fact, you are seeing the zen-ipython theme powering my blog right now.

I have used them for several days without any remarkable issue, so I decided to release them at the Nikola's theme repository.

There, you will see three Zen themes:

  • zen, based in mako templates
  • zen-jinja, the same zen theme but based (obviously) in jinja templates
  • zen-ipython, a jinja-based zen theme suited to be used with the IPython notebooks.

As you know, you can easily install them using the following command inside your Nikola site folder:

nikola install_theme zen

(or zen-jinja... or zen-ipython, or whatever theme available at

I have developed the Zen theme family with a high customization concept in my mind... but this approach has a cost because you need to use a proper file to run them ok (the default one will not work, but you can find a working example looking at my blog file.

OK, it's all for this post.

Enjoy the Zen themes and, as usually, report me any problem...
