I’m excited to share Origin, a personal blog theme for Ghost! Here’s the demo.
I’m a big fan of simple blogs. No fancy JS. Just a list of great posts. However, most of the time there is a trade-off between simplicity (in design) and a good writing experience.
When creating Origin, I wanted to make sure that you could benefit from all the bells and whistles in Ghost’s editor but still portray a very simple blog.
By default, the theme supports:
System dark/light mode
Rich embedding for all media on posts to match Ghost’s editor
Newsletter Subcription box
Origin isn’t for monetising your audience (although, you could add it). It’s just a place for you to log your thoughts and share them with others.
In addition, Origin uses TailwindCSS for all its styling. This makes it a great starter theme for anyone who likes to use Tailwind and wants to make some themes in the future!
Interested in performance? Below is the latest lighthouse score recorded using the theme.
The theme costs $30 via Gumroad. Once you purchase the theme, you will get any updates directly in your inbox.
I’m an indie maker so all the proceeds will fund my next projects which I talk about on my blog.
