Ghost

Ghost is dedicated to one thing: publishing. It's beautifully designed, completely customizable and completely open source. It allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even (gasp) fun to do. It's simple, elegant, and designed so that you can spend less time messing with making your blog work - and more time blogging.   

John O’Nolan worked on the WordPress team for several years. He loved it, but the project turned in a direction away from its original vision. In early 2013, John blogged “If I could build WordPress all over again, what would I do differently?”  The post got picked up on the front page of Hacker News. He pulled together a prototype using JavaScript and NodeJS, and set out to raise a small amount of money using Kickstarter in April. In 29 days, he raised 10x the amount he wanted. Set up as a non-profit, John hired a team of three, got significant help from the open source community, and created a first version that was released in Oct. It got 4m views and 100k downloads! While the current version (as of this writing) is limited to single-user blogging, it is stable and growing rapidly. And WordPress is now implementing many of the things Ghost is doing.
