Customising Bastard Theme

Bastard theme uses Grunt to lint, compile, and concatenate the javascript and SASS components. Customize the theme by editing the assets/js/bastard.js and sass/* files. Run grunt to compile your changes or use the grunt watch while you build your own theme.

  1. Make sure you have Node.js, Bower and Grunt installed on your system.
  2. Copy theme folder to Ghost themes directory /content/themes. Open your terminal and make the theme's folder your current working directory.
  3. Run bower install to install package dependencies.
  4. Run npm install to install Grunt components.
  5. Restart Ghost and switch the theme to use Swaggy Bastard in the Ghost's Settings.
  6. Make your changes by updating /sass/*, /assets/*, and *.hbs files of the theme.
  7. Run grunt watch to start watching for file changes or run grunt to build your latest changes.
  8. If you have new images for the theme, just place them inside image_sources folder and Grunt will handle the optimisation automatically and store the optimized version inside assets/images/.
  9. Update the social media icon links by updating partials/social.hbs.
  10. Update gravatar by updating URL in partials/gravatar.hbs.
