Node.js Jekyll to Ghost

Build Status

This NodeJS module will help you to export Jekyll markdown posts to a format that can be easily imported to Ghost Blog Platform.
It doesn't handle static pages, and it doesn't do anything with images. You'll have to copy those over yourself and manually adjust any URL differences.

This was built by reverse-engineering the version of Wordpress plugin and Ghost schema to match the JSON file it outputs.

Prerequisite

  • Node.js v4.0

How to use

Clone/download the repository then place your Jekyll posts into posts folder or create a folder in the root level with your Jekyll posts. Your post should be on YAML format (which is Jekyll default format).

To install dependencies

sudo npm install

To start to export

node index.js ./path/to/jekyll/posts

Type the name of the folder.. wait for the magic happen. If everything went fine you should get this message

Ghost JSON generated successfully!

And a file called ghost-generated.json was created on your folder.

After do the steps above boot up your Ghost platform.

npm start

Go to the url http://localhost:2368/ghost/debug/ import the file generated nodejs-jekyll-to-ghost called ghost-generated.json That's it.. Now you should have migrated your posts to Ghost format and ready to begin blog on your new Ghost blog platform.

ps: I removed all test posts on Ghost blog before migrate my Ghost generated format.
