So I've switched the website across to Ghost. I remember seeing Ghost a few years ago as a Digital Ocean 1 click app on the marketplace but I never looking into it. In many ways I prefer it to Nikola since it is easier to manage - especially for non-technical people rather than suggesting them to use WordPress.
I have a client that started her blog with Wix. I had considered moving her to Nikola but decided the learning curb was too hard. I decided to get her moved to Ghost. I helped her setup a ghost server with Digital Ocean, register a domain name, and point that domain name to the Digital Ocean server. I then got her to connect into the server and setup Ghost. I got her to add me as an admin and I cleaned up the newly created blog - along with rewriting her wix blog posts, created a logo, ico image, and gave some feedback on the content. You can check out her travel blog Dreamistry Locale.
I had considered moving my artblog to ghost. Currently it is using Nikola and I would be happy to use Ghost instead. It's somewhat hard to move so many posts across though - especially since they are a combo of .wp files pointing to a wp-content folder for images, and markdown files pointing to a galleries (using year/month/day). I had started building a python script that would open my markdown files and create posts on a ghost site with them. See how it goes.
Here is a screenshot of what I have build so far. The Nuxt app connects to wmckee via the content api key that Ghost offers.
Here is the content view when you click on a post.
I have started looking into using bootstrap in order to help with styling. I also want to render more details rather than just blog title / content such as tags / author / date publish etc.
