A Revolutionary Dashboard

Ghost grabs all the important data about your blog and pulls it into one place. No more clicking through tens of browser tabs to view your traffic, social media subscriptions, content performance or news feeds.

Drag and drop the widgets to create your own custom dashboard, with the most important information first. Stay on top of your blog's performance and your social media activity as your readership grows.

Coming soon! The Ghost Dashboard is currently in development and will be available for everyone a little later in 2014

Customise it Completely. It's Yours.

You can write themes for it so your blog can have its own design. You can write plugins for it to add your own functionality. You can host it on your laptop, or you can host it on a public server. The code is open, and so is the MIT license. No restrictions.

It Works Where You Work

We know that inspiration can strike anywhere, not just when you're sitting behind a computer. So, Ghost works where you work.

Ghost is a fully responsive web application that works on all devices. Not just moderating comments or token functionality. The whole thing.
