This is a template designed to work with empress-blog and is a fully-functional, static site implementation of the official Ghost Casper Template built on EmberJS with fully working out of the box SEO friendly output. It supports being hosted on Github Pages, AWS S3 or any other static site hosting solution.

For more information on how to use this system read the empress-blog documentation but if you want to get started straight away, try the quick start below.

If you want an example of this "in production" then check out the Stone Circle Blog. If you use this in production let me know on Twitter and I can add a "built with empress-blog-casper-template" wiki.

You do not need to be a web developer to be able to use this system. You just write markdown files and the rest of the work is performed by EmberJS' build system.

Quick Start

# if you don't have ember-cli installed already
npm install -g ember-cli

ember new super-blog
cd super-blog

ember install empress-blog empress-blog-casper-template

It will ask you if you want to update the index.html file and you should say yes 👍

If you want to see the blog system running on your local machine just run npm start and you will be able to navigate to http://localhost:4200 to see the blog in action.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
