Pelican stands as a rapid static site generator, empowering you to construct top-tier websites, blogs, and portfolios with remarkable efficiency. Built upon the foundation of Python, it delivers unparalleled speed and performance, making it a favored choice among developers.

Pelican’s thriving community of users and contributors consistently push the boundaries of what can be achieved with Pelican. This ensures you’ll always discover the assistance and motivation necessary to elevate your project to new heights. Coupled with its intuitive syntax and user-friendly interface, Pelican caters seamlessly to developers of various skill levels.

NB: Spinal requires YAML frontmatter and Markdown.

Seamlessly manage your content with a git-based Pelican CMS

Spinal is designed to connect with your Pelican site's GitHub repository, enabling you to quickly and easily publish the content. The process is so effortless, it takes just a few clicks to get started! All you need to do is select your repository, specify where your Markdown files are located, and the content is automatically imported into your Spinal dashboard. Unlike other content management systems, there's no need to spend time and effort fiddling with APIs, mapping Frontmatter, or dealing with other quirky setup procedures. Within minutes, after connecting GitHub, you can write, edit and publish to your Pelican site.

Spinal allows you to work with your entire team to create and publish the best content possible. Whether you're a developer or a marketer, Spinal makes it easy to collaborate on the content in your Pelican site and streamline your workflow. And with Spinal's intuitive dashboard, you can easily manage your content, get a clear view of upcoming content and get birds-eye overview of all your content in draft, QA and scheduled with Spinal's (Kanban) Workflow feature.

Adored by both developers and non-developers

Developers hold a strong affinity for Pelican due to its straightforward nature and rapid performance, enabling them to swiftly create static websites with utmost convenience. Pair that with Spinal's minimal, beautiful, and powerful WYSIWYG editor, you can empower the rest of your team to write, update, and schedule content for your marketing site with ease.

Spinal's intuitive interface makes it easy for non-technical team members to create and publish content, without requiring them to learn complex coding languages or workflows. Your content can be scheduled and published with just a few clicks, with a build process set up, thanks to the first-party integration with GitHub.

With this new superpower, your team can collaborate more efficiently and get more content out in less time. A seamless method to optimise your team's operations and craft impactful marketing material that will genuinely enhance your business's success. Tailored to cater to teams of various sizes!
