A development starter theme for Ghost
A starter framework for Ghost themes! Fork this repository and start your development here with all the main things you need to develop a custom Ghost theme.
Ghost uses a simple templating language called Handlebars for its themes.
We've documented our default theme pretty heavily so that it should be fairly easy to work out what's going on just by reading the code and the comments. Once you feel comfortable with how everything works, we also have full theme API documentation which explains every possible Handlebars helper and template.
The main files are:
default.hbs- The main template file
index.hbs- Used for the home page
post.hbs- Used for individual posts
page.hbs- Used for individual pages
tag.hbs- Used for tag archives
author.hbs- Used for author archives
One neat trick is that you can also create custom one-off templates just by adding the slug of a page to a template file. For example:
page-about.hbs- Custom template for the
tag-news.hbs- Custom template for
author-ali.hbs- Custom template for
# Install yarn
Run build & watch for changes
Now you can edit
/assets/css/files, which will be compiled to
zipGulp task packages the theme files into
dist/.zip, which you can then upload to your site.
