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.
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.Theme Demo

Enough Features to Shame Most Free Blog Themes...
The completed theme is completely table-less, requires no images, is seo friendly (SEOSiteCheckup.com), tests crazy fast (Pingdom Speed Test), uses only 2 CSS & JS files, is HTML5 valid (W3 Validator Test), and cross-compatible on every major browser. Navigation, sharing buttons, tabs, icons, alerts, overlays, forms, animations, dropdowns, modals, toggles... it's all in there. Just follow the simple documentation and you're off at a sprinters pace. It's currently running my personal blog (Matthew Haeck - Personal Blog) if you'd like to see it in action. It's nothing fancy of course, but it should give you an idea of what a well coded minimal Ghost theme and about 15 minutes of customization can get you.

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.
