Dummy plugin that says hi (to the 8th version)

To install, run nikola plugin -i helloworld

This is a simple plugin you can use as a basis for your own. It does nothing interesting:

  • It creates a task for Nikola
  • The task prints a notice saying "Hello World"
  • The task is always considered out of date, so it always runs, unless you set BYE_WORLD=True in conf.py

This copy is mildly more interesting, as the plugins site considers it v8-only. (It isn’t.)

Suggested Configuration:

# Should the Hello World plugin say “BYE” instead?
# Nikola v8!


  • Nikola (Python package)
  • doit (Python package)
