Love open source? We're hiring Node.js engineers to work on Ghost full-time.

 

Fiercely independent, professional publishing. Ghost is the most popular open source, headless Node.js CMS which already works with all the tools you know and love.

 

Ghost(Pro) Ghost(Pro)

The easiest way to get a production instance deployed is with our official Ghost(Pro) managed service. It takes about 2 minutes to launch a new site with worldwide CDN, backups, security and maintenance all done for you.

For most people this ends up being the best value option cause of how much time it saves and 100% of revenue goes to the Ghost Foundation; funding the maintenance and further development of the project itself. So youll be supporting open source software and getting a great service!

If you prefer to run on your own infrastructure, we also offer official 1-off installs and managed support and maintenance plans via Ghost(Valet) - which can save a substantial amount of developer time and resources.

 

Quickstart install

If you want to run your own instance of Ghost, in most cases the best way is to use our CLI tool

npm install ghost-cli -g

 

Then, if installing locally add the local flag to get up and running in under a minute - Local install docs

ghost install local

 

or on a server run the full install, including automatic SSL setup using LetsEncrypt - Production install docs

ghost install

 

Check out our official documentation for more information about our recommended hosting stack & properly upgrading Ghost, plus everything you need to develop your own Ghost themes or work with our API.
