Pelican is a platform for building websites - blogs, mostly - in a way that demands very little from the hosting server. It's really secure and fast, and it doesn't really require configuration or databases on the server-side.

I was intrigued by this, and decided to try it out. As I explored Pelican, I looked for a gallery of themes, and I couldn't find one, so my first project with Pelican is making a browsable gallery of the themes that are available.

For the demos, I used sample Wordpress content from WPCandy and imported it to Pelican, Markdown format. There are definitely some rough spots, but this is enough to start with.

This blog is using Chunk, from the the official themes repository.
