Let's consider an e-commerce site at The main store application is powered by Flask, but our marketing department would like to start a blog at We could build blogging functionality into our e-commerce site, but it would be much quicker and easier to use a separate application, such as Wordpress or Ghost.
  • Why I'm working on Open Source full time | 2021-09-29
    I gotta admit, I like the open core model. When it's done right, it seems like a reasonable way to monetize while still getting development done and encouraging a community and ecosystem. I've been looking at how Ghost[0] set things up[1] and it seems to be working very well. The company is non-profit and has certain restrictions in place to ensure that they don't become evil. Still, it won't work for everything and it can't work for smaller libraries.

  • Build a JAMStack Blog with NextJS and Ghost | 2021-08-26
    I have a certain affinity for Ghost, an open-source publishing platform created in 2013 and built on NodeJS. It was the first platform I used to build my website back in 2015, but over time curiosity struck and I moved away from it.
  • Subscribing Ghost Members From Your JAMStack Site | 2021-08-26
    At the time of writing this post, interacting with member data via the Admin API is an undocumented feature. I was not able to find any reference to it within Ghost's developer documentation, and the only reason I know about this is through hours of poking around a number of Ghost's GitHub repositories, specifically this one, this one and this one. Oh and this one. | 2021-08-26
    In a previous post we walked through a basic blog setup using NextJS and Ghost as a headless CMS. In this post, we'll take things up a notch by adding support for Ghost Memberships, a new feature in v4.0.

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.
