New open-source Ghost themes

We've shipped three shiny new Ghost themes to the Marketplace that are ready to use, fully open-source, free and extensible. Plus: a new starter theme for developers!

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Hell yeah !!

Hi Kym,

I really enjoy London! Over Elements we can see styles.

Would you share the source of this page? I’m particularly curious about re-creating the:

  1. the Buttons
  2. the forms
  3. the grid system

These elements were quite missing from the previous theme :) Can’t wait to use them. Thank you!

Hey, the London theme is free and fully open source, there are links to all of the downloads in the blog post attached to this thread. You can download the London theme here.

Hi again,
I’m aware that I can download the theme :slight_smile: What I’m asking here is the source that made the element page possible. I guess we need to use the HTML and/or Markdown card in Koenig. There is no doc about using these elements.

How can we recreate these?

1) Button


2) Forms


3) Grid



Hey again!

The styling for these elements is available in the repository for the London theme and if you inspect the HTML of the elements page you mentioned you can see how the page has been built.

You can use these elements on pages directly in your theme files, or you could also use a HTML card in the editor as you mentioned. Since the elements of a Ghost theme vary so much, there’s no specific documentation for this.

This is just amazing :heart_eyes: :tada:

I have a quick question: is there a demo of the new starter theme for developers anywhere? I know it’s designed to run locally and develop your own theme but I am just curious what it looks like out of the box :thinking:

Thanks again for everyone’s amazing work :tada:

The starter was built using the London theme as a foundation. There’s no demo site, as it’s not intended to be used out of the box but rather as a framework for developers to build on top of :smile:

Here is what I was looking for.

Everyone love buttons! Use them as a **call to action**.

### button primary

<a href="" class="button primary">See my blog</a>

<a href="" class="button primary">See my blog</a>

### button primary (with an icon)

<a href="" class="button primary"><i class="fas fa-fire"></i>&nbsp;&nbsp;See my blog</a>

Thanks for the response :+1:

If anyone reading this thread is interested in what the starter theme roughly looks like they can check out:

Here is a screenshot

You’re right, it doesn’t look like much out of the box :joy: but it is really useful to know how to structure your templates and partials :tada:
