Comments and Reviews
Recent user activities on Ghost
- reviewed GhostFairly easy to template and even hack, as long as You self-host, but being implemented in NodeJS, it is not very easy on the system resources. As for front-end, the website will also use above-average amount of RAM through user's/visitor's browser. Authoring basic content is comfortable on the web as well as mobile, it is not for video, though. Although an MIT licensed OpenSource, it directly promotes commercial services, which fuels development and yields reliable documented integrations but disqualifies it from the FOSS label. Effectively, Ghost is a content platform allowing for ad and/or paywall based monetization. The easiest way, though, is to use partners ghost suggests, paying their fees. Cloud hosting offered directly id cheap at entry level but priced per paying member volume, so their "no revenue shares" claim is misleading. The software is ideal for creative/marketing agencies, reselling Ghost hosting and using one integrator across multiple instances.
