Ghost is an Open Source application which allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even (gasp) fun to do. It’s simple, elegant, and designed so that you can spend less time messing with making your blog work – and more time blogging.
Ghost has an incredibly simple concept for writing. You write in Markdown on the left, and you see an immediate preview of exactly what your post will look like in rendered HTML on the right.
– Never stop writing, format on the fly
– No messing around with buttons everywhere
– No writing repetitive HTML markup
– Mobile friendly
A Revolutionary Dashboard
Ghost grabs all the important data about your blog and pulls it into one place. No more clicking through tens of browser tabs to view your traffic, social media subscriptions, content performance or news feeds. Drag and drop the widgets to create your own custom dashboard, with the most important information first. Stay on top of your blog’s performance and your social media activity as your readership grows.
You can write themes for it so your blog can have its own design. You can write plugins for it to add your own functionality. You can host it on your laptop, or you can host it on a public server. The code is open, and so is the MIT license. No restrictions.
