Ghostrunner

A CLI for the Ghost blogging platform.

Ghostrunner is a command-line application that can create Ghost blogs and provides OS-specific service wrappers (upstart, launchctl or initctl) so that the server is started on system startup.

See this blog article for detailed setup instructions for AWS.

Usage

npm install -g ghostrunner

Creating a Blog

mkdir somewhere && cd somewhere
ghostrunner init
ghostrunner server

ghostrunner init will not overwrite any files - if you want to overwrite files then remove them first.

Installing the blog as a service

ghostrunner install # uses ndm to install the appropriate service wrapper for your OS
ghostrunner start # to start the service now

Deployment

  1. Install ghostrunner on the server: sudo npm install -g ghostrunner
  2. Deploy the blog to your server and cd into the directory
  3. npm install && sudo ghostrunner install && sudo ghostrunner start
  4. Confirm that it runs on system startup by rebooting

Specifying user and group

If you want to run your blog as a different user you can use the --uid and --gid options. Be aware that running as root is probably a very bad idea.

ghostrunner install --uid myuser --gid myuser

Troubleshooting

  • If you change the package name (in package.json) you will also need to change the ghostrunner-blog key in service.json
