Ghost Theme

Compatible with Ghost 4.x


The theme uses Gulp and NodeJs (Node v12 or v14) for development purposes. You'll need Gulp and Nodejs installed globally. After that from the theme's root directory run the following commands.

$ npm install 
$ npm run dev

Now you can edit the SCSS and JS files in /assets/src/ , which will be compiled to /assets/built/ automatically.

The build Gulp task minifies all the CSS & JS files and packages the theme into dist/<theme-name>.zip, which you can then upload to your site.

$ npm run build


To change the colors or fonts in the theme, you can modify the /assets/src/styles/partials/_variables.scss file. After modifications, complile the SASS files again by following command –

$ npm run build

This will generate the zipped theme file in /dist directory.
