A responsive theme for Ghost 3.x.

What that mean CUSCA?

Is the abbreviation for Cuscatlán, it was the name of El Salvador before the conquest and means "the land of precious things" in Nahuatl.


Cusca was development using Foundation as base, the style is generated with Sass and the javascript is generated with Typescript and other cool stuff that comes from different libraries:

All the help to contribute to the development or improvement of the theme is welcomed.


Inside the Ghost themes folder (content/themes) you have to clone the repository or download the last version:

⚓️ Last release

git clone



Inside the post.hbs file you need to replace [your-disqus-name] with your Disqus name:

(function() { // DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE
    var d = document, s = d.createElement('script');
    s.async = true;
    s.src = 'https://[your-disqus-name]';
    s.setAttribute('data-timestamp', +new Date());
    (d.head || d.body).appendChild(s);

Do the same for partials/loop.hbs:

<script id="dsq-count-scr" src="//[your-disqus-name]" async></script>


The new release of the Ghost API v3, require extra steps that are NECESSARY for the search functionality:

  • Go in your Ghost's dashboard -> Integrations -> Add custom integration
  • Set a name: Themes Search
  • Get the Content API Key and replace the demo key with this one
  • Do the same with the API URL

The file to modify with this credentials is src/scripts/app.ts and at the end of the document is the Search section, and the parameter you need to change are the URL and Key from the GhostSearch class.

const ghostSearch = new GhostSearch({
    url: 'http://localhost:2368',
    key: '4f1476d8df3a9cd277b2273b6e',

You will need to rebuild the theme to make it work after modifying the parameters. In the end of this page you will find the commands that you need to do it.

Social Icons

Inside the partials/footer.hbs file replace [your-user] with your user names for each social network:

    <a href="[your-user]" target="_blank" rel="noopener" title="Youtube"><i class="fab fa-youtube"></i></a>
    <a href="[your-user]" target="_blank" rel="noopener" title="Facebook"><i class="fab fa-facebook-f"></i></a>
