Jinja2 is much easier than mako template. pelican is kind of opinionated
and conventional engine as said by Kracekumar that assume you do the things
on its own way. I will see how I can overcome with image attributes as per
me, it will be served from url, could be relative to server or absolute url.
I am using Jinja2 as well. Lets see how this come up.
Thanks for sharing them.
