Triangle Ghost Theme

The Triangle Ghost Theme is a clean & responsive theme built for Ghost CMS. This minimal Ghost theme features a UIKit core, responsive layout, fixed menu, Disqus comments, slick animations and much more.

A triangle perfectly represents something that's both structurally solid and able to reach high in a given area. Using the Triangle Ghost Theme leaves the focal point up to you, delivers the clean code, and makes expansion a breeze. Built with a bulletproof UIKit foundation and tons of Javascript effects, the flexibility is quite extensive. It's a fantastic starting point for advanced web developers and the clean layout makes it perfect for designers that like to grow their style organically over time.

What Makes a Solid Responsive Ghost Theme?


First and foremost - We kept it simple. Like many themes, this project started as an "in-house" time saver. With an influx of recent Ghost projects, we thought it'd be a good idea to generate a skeleton that could save us (and clients) a few hours in the development process. The result is a beautiful fully responsive Ghost theme, that's open source and available as a free download to an of our visitors.

Triangle Ghost Theme - Page Layout

Meet the Triangle Ghost Theme.

We started by including the features most Ghost projects require. A well placed feature image, Google fonts, social sharing buttons, Disqus comments, a fixed navbar, and Google Analytics seemed like a good place to start. The result - a cleanly coded, lightening quick responsive Ghost theme.

UIKit and Ghost - Triangle Ghost Theme

One Sexy UIKit Ghost Theme.

Ghost was devised with simplicity in mind, just like one of our favorite CSS libraries UIKit - So we knew they'd pair together well. The combination gave us more layout options then we could hope for. CSS3 & Javascript add some subtle flair and together give this UIKit Ghost theme an endless world of possibilities.

The Golden Triangle Ghost Theme

Since folks seem to like our Triangle Ghost Theme, we've decided to release an enhanced version for people looking for a little more performance and features. The result is a minimal Ghost theme with maximal features (assuming that's actually a word). The most profound enhancements are a live sorting homepage & AJAX content searching. While these features could be explained, it's much easier for you to just stop by the demo site and try them out yourself. You'll notice we've added an Instagram feed, Lazy-loading images (for quicker pageloads), and an easy to customize LESS file - So you can have your project wrapped in no time. Give it a look and let us know what you think.
