Why developers like Ghost?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Ghost in their tech stack.
We've been using Ghost as the blog software for Zulip since we first needed a blog. I've been pretty happy with using open source software developed by a non-profit, and their editing experience is great. We use Dropbox Paper to draft posts with a nice commenting experience, and then export the Markdown into Ghost when we're ready to publish.
There's a few that could be better, though. My main complaint is they have a 200 character limit for author biographies, which seems arbitrary and unhelpful.
The Ghost CMS is built on Node.js and provides the means to post new content (articles) to the site. As I have little time to actually spend on broadcasting my thoughts to the blogosphere, this doesn't see much use. Ghost
