Just Good Themes & Ghost – Past, Present And The Future

Just Good Themes and Ghost

If you have been following our work for some time you probably noticed that WordPress is not the only platform we work with. We also build themes for Ghost. We have been working with Ghost platform from its first release. The first time we heard about it was from John O’Nolan’s blog post. At that time it was just an idea presented with a clear vision and beautiful design mockup and we really liked it. To support his idea John started hugely successful Kickstarter Campaign and raised $300 000. We also pledged few bucks to support it 🙂 . After that Ghost (thank you Hana and the team for awesome work) was released and from this day we are keeping an eye on Ghost development and building themes for it as well.

Why we choose to work with Ghost

If you are wondering why we choose to work with Ghost the reason is quite simple. We love tools that do one job and do it well and we see Ghost as this kind of tool. Also, we choose to work with it because it has completely different technology stack compared to WordPress. Ghost s built with Node, Express and Ember framework and it is useful for us to learn new tools and techniques.

Ghost Theme Releases by Just Good Themes

We released six paid and one free theme during the time we have been working with Ghost. All paid Ghost themes are distributed via ThemeForest and our free theme Scriptor can be downloaded via GitHub. All our themes are up to date and working with the latest Ghost version and we will keep it this way.

This is the complete list of all our Ghost themes on ThemeForest:

Client Work

Ghost platform also brought us quite a few clients. We created sites or customized themes for The Wine Gallery, Fort Brox, Happiful Magazine, Ad Creative and others. All in all, it’s been an awesome experience.

The Future

We are writing this post not only to share with you our experience with Ghost but to announce that soon we will be releasing a brand new Ghost theme and it will be the first theme distributed via our own site. From that day Just Good Themes will become WordPress and Ghost theme shop.

Nothing will change for our WordPress theme customers. But it will be quite a significant change for people who are using our Ghost themes as we will be releasing more Ghost themes and writing content and adding new services related to Ghost platform as well.

Hope you are excited as we are! If yes, join our newsletter to know when the new theme release hits the site!
