Ghost is a powerful content platform designed for the future

An editor for writers

A Markdown based editing environment allows for fast formatting and a seamless authoring experience which places the focus entirely on the content being created. A live side-by-side allows you to always see how the post will render.

Simple content management

All your content is available in an easily searchable archive which can be scanned through at speed. Never lose track of those old articles again! We've got this.

Posts also come with a robust tagging functionality to allow for fine-grained categorisation of content, giving you a flexible archive which adapts to your needs. You can build almost any type of category, section, format or flow using tags. It's kind of like Gmail labels.
