Buster - A theme for the Ghost blogging platform
Buster is a lightweight, open source theme for the Ghost blogging platform. It features a simple, clean card UI and is fully responsive. It's currently in use on my personal website: https://www.daanbeverdam.com.
⚠️Important note: if you're running a Ghost version lower than 1.0.0, please refer to the
legacybranch for a compatible version of this theme.
How to use
If you want to use the theme for your own blog you can grab the latest zip file from the
master branch. Upload this file via the backend or extract it into the
content/themes/ folder of your Ghost installation. Then restart Ghost and select the theme from the backend under
Settings > General > Theme.
Alternatively, you can clone the repository into the
content/themes/ folder by using
git clone https://github.com/daanbeverdam/buster.git
If you want to enable comments, create a Disqus website following these steps. The subdomain of the created website should be added to the
<script> DISQUS_SUBDOMAIN = 'subdomain'; // replace with your own Disqus subdomain </script>
The recommended number of post per page is 11. Keep in mind that the frontpage is highly graphical and large post images may increase page load time. For optimal performance, aim for a resolution of 600 by 200 pixels.
