Lektor can be extended through the use of plugins. This is something that can be done on a per-project basis. This gives a quick overview of how to use plugins and how to build your own.
Lektor can find and install plugins that have been published to PyPI for you.
For completely automated plugin management just open your project file in a
text editor and edit or extend the
[packages] section. Just add a line
for each plugin in the form
name = version:
[packages] lektor-cool-plugin = 1.0 lektor-other-plugin = 1.2
It's also possible to use the plugins add command
lektor plugin add NAME to automatically add the latest version of a plugin
to the project file.
To upgrade a plugin just increase the version number to the release you want and Lektor will do the rest.
Plugins can be added to a Lektor project in two different ways:
[packages]section of the project. In that case Lektor will automatically download and enable the plugin next time you build the project or run the server. This can be accomplished for you with the automatic install above, or it can be done manually.
packages/folder in your project. Each plugin has to go into a separate folder. This method is especially useful for project specific plugins or for plugin development.
