Nikola v8.1.3 is out!

On behalf of the Nikola team, I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Nikola v8.1.3. This release has some minor fixes, and a minor dependency change.

What is Nikola?

Nikola is a static site and blog generator, written in Python. It can use Mako and Jinja2 templates, and input in many popular markup formats, such as reStructuredText and Markdown — and can even turn Jupyter Notebooks into blog posts! It also supports image galleries, and is multilingual. Nikola is flexible, and page builds are extremely fast, courtesy of doit (which is rebuilding only what has been changed).

Find out more at the website:


Install using pip install Nikola.



  • Provide the full GLOBAL_CONTEXT to the post list shortcode plugin (Issue #3481)

  • Add BasePlugin.register_auto_watched_folder()

  • Allow different PANDOC_OPTIONS values based on input extensions by specifying a dict of {".extension": [options]} (Issue #3492)

  • Allow boolean/integer pretty_url post meta values in YAML/TOML (Issue #3503)


  • Fix an UnboundLocalError crash in nikola deploy (Issue #3479)


  • For nikola github_deploy, the ghp-import PyPI package is now recommended instead of ghp-import2. Both versions should work, but you can’t have both installed at the same time. (Issue #3499)
