Ghost is a fully open source platform for building and running a modern online publication. It is a latest free service. The program has a rich interface that contains plugins similar to WordPress and other features. It works well on mobile devices too. Today Ghost powers an incredible range of websites; from individual bloggers who are just getting started, to large teams of writers and editors at some of the largest organizations in the world.
In November 2012 Ghost was first time published by its idea in a blog post by project by its founder which made enough response to justify coding a prototype version with collaborator Hannah Wolfe. It was founded, after a very successful Kick starter campaign to create a new platform focused solely on professional publishing. The mission of Ghost is to create the best open source tools for independent journalists and writers across the world and have a real impact on the future of online media. It is an exciting new blogging platform that can be used to easily manage your posts, update themes, and edit content. A simple, yet powerful interface allows you to get to work immediately and publish beautiful results. Ghost asks you to use Markdown, which is a plain text formatting syntax that converts HTML. All the famous tech bloggers use it. Ghost shows you a preview of how your article will look on Google. If you don’t like the preview, you can provide a specific page title and meta description for search engines.
