Hi everyone! I’m Greg, a developer and big fan of Ghost. I built a free and open-source theme a little while back called Newsliner.
Recently I’ve been working on a Google Docs Add-on that directly integrates with Ghost. Currently, the only way I’m aware of to link Google Docs and Ghost is through Zapier, which has a few drawbacks:
- Need a Zapier account which might get expensive depending on your total usage
- Takes some initial configuration that isn’t super-intuitive
- Limited to New posts, can’t update Existing posts
- Difficult to update meta data fields
With my add-on, you will have full control over all the meta data fields that you have in Ghost, directly from a sidebar in Google Docs:
It will also be super simple to set-up with no separate account required. You will just have to enter your Ghost Admin API Key, API URL and a license key from me directly in the Add-on’s settings:
Once it is ready, I plan to charge $5 / month or $50 / year, but as a special pre-order deal I’m giving one-year access for $25. (no questions asked refund if you aren’t satisfied once you try it)
Also, just so you know, I’m building this as part of my social business, Epilocal, which builds technology for local news - so all proceeds go towards making that mission sustainable.
I hope you will check it out and let me know your thoughts. Feel free to ask me any questions here!
