What is Ghost?

Ghost is a free and very popular open-source headless Node.js CMS. Unlike WordPress or Joomla, Ghost tries to specifically focus on bloggers and publishers. It is a completely independent platform which gives you control of the technology, the content and the audience. The framework was designed with one clear purpose: minimalistic content publishing.

Apart from its headless capabilities, one of the great things about Ghost framework is its leanness. It is designed for a specific task, publishing content, and it performs that task really effectively. Is also has an elegant and friendly UI.
