Node.js Jekyll to Ghost
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.
- 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.
Go to the url
http://localhost:2368/ghost/debug/ import the file generated nodejs-jekyll-to-ghost called
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.
