GhostStead Puts You in Control
As a developer, you need the freedom to build a platform-specific to you. As the world’s most powerful open-source headless Node.js CMS, GhostStead makes this as easy, or as hard, as you want it to be. You choose what you do, and how you do it.
Intuitive, Elegant and Unlimited Development Tools
GhostStead knows what matters to developers - security, speed and flexibility. You don’t have to complicate your code with plugins, or sacrifice performance for design. We don’t believe in compromises, so at GhostStead, you can have it all.
With easy integrations, mandatory SSL and a modern design built using Node.js, we've tried to think of everything. But if you can do better, we won’t stop you. We’re completely open-source, so you’re always in control. That’s the beauty of GhostStead - there’s nothing you can’t do.
Our default admin client and front-end are simple and elegant, so you can choose how complicated you want things to be. Our job is to make things easy - which is why we give developers a detailed collection of tutorials, guides and API references.
We're committed to making every aspect of the process smooth and convenient, which is why GhostStead has native SEO and configurable routing. If you want to add a build step to change your site's terms and conditions, you can. At Ghostead, what you want, you get.
Our built-in optimizations and PaaS mean you’re free to focus on the ideas that matter. GhostStead handles the details for you - from meta tags and admin API to schema.org data and theme compatibility scans. We’ve taken care of the little things so you can make something bigger.
At GhostStead, you have complete control over your development. Building a theme with us is just like using a static site generator; you only work with the tools you like. There’s no PHP, so you can modify core behaviour, and GhostStead adds an easy admin interface for when the details change . Whether you’re looking for a blank canvas or a carefully crafted template, we’ve got you covered with our exclusive theme marketplace.
Our themes use HTML, CSS and JS just like other sites, so you can use any JAMstack front-end, like:
