30+ Best Ghost Themes 2018 in Free & Premium

Ghost CMS may not be as popular as the WordPress blogging platform i love the simplicity of ghost blogs. Ghost will not work on cpanel or vps servers just with lamp stack. Node.js is required on the server and ghost to be installed on top of it. It took a while to figure out the installation itself but at the end of the day i was amazed by the simplicity of the ghost cms. Ghost means strict blogging just like tumblr network and nothing else as far as it is concerned to me. Today we will take a look at some best ghost themes that are available in the internet so you decide which one to use.  Oh and its ridiculously fast.

Typography seems to be the perfect on ghost themes and most themes weigh for their stylish clear typography fonts. Minimalism along with clean typography take ghost themes to a new level. At first glance i found ghost cms and its themes much more targeting towards to the copywriters or say journalists who write like hell. Latest modern website features like Parallax effects, flat design, responsive layout options are well integrated into ghost themes here. Also check our free WordPress responsive themes 2018 we have compiled with latest themes.

    I love how one of these isn’t actually a Ghost theme!

  2. Omphalosskeptic

    I’ve recently released mnml — a free & open source Ghost theme that’s responsive, minimal, and has great typography.

    It has Disqus comments, a menu for static pages, syntax highlighting, and KaTeX math typesetting. Plus, it’s blazing fast: it scores 90%+ on google page speed, and double As on GTMetrix.

    You can see the theme live on my blog — http://autodidacts.io — or on the official demo site: http://mnml.herokuapp.com
