Ghost Publishing Platform on the Raspberry Pi


I decided to have a look around for an alternative to WordPress. I must admit I do have a tendency to do this from time to time. Anyway, enter Ghost. No php, just pure js built for the new world order. Anyway, get your Raspberry Pi up and running with Raspbian Jessie and then plug in the following commands – you can check through the here for the latest v4 (Argon) nodejs. That is currently the best supported version Ghost recommends.

cd ~
tar -xzf node [TAB COMPLETE]
sudo make install
node -v
cd ~
curl -L -o
sudo unzip -uo -d /var/www/[your-web-site]
cd /var/www/[your-web-site]
sudo npm install --unsafe-perm --production
sudo nano config.js

Under production
        url: 'http://[your-webserver-address]',

Under server
            host: '',
            port: '80'

sudo npm start --production

Visit http://[your-webserver-address]/ghost and you’ll be firing on all cylinders! I hope this helps someone out there!
