Simple Design, Advanced Technology

Looks like a kitten, runs like a cheetah

Node.js is the platform which powers Ghost. Being built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime makes it fast, scalable and incredibly efficient.

Ember.js runs the clientside web application which makes up Ghost’s administrative area for smooth, slick user experience.

Handlebars is the powerful, logicless, semantic templating language which powers Ghost's themes. It's very easy to learn!
