  2. Bitnami Ghost 5

    Elegant and easy to get started

    by Fred Kelly on

    I recently installed Ghost for a friend having heard about the project on Kickstarter. The administration interface is refreshingly simple and satisfying to use, I can write articles in markdown and know for sure that they will render perfectly for visitors. The platform is extremely flexible; almost anything can be changed, for example I was able to customize the theme to my heart's content just by altering HTML and using the straightforward Handlebars template library. I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a simple alternative to WordPress etc. that is really quick to get up and running with!
