We use ghost.org for our blog and we’re happy enough with it overall. It (intentionally) doesn’t do much and we don’t need much - a perfect match.
One thing that doesn’t work ideally for me is that I prefer to write posts on my own machine using my preferred text editor (I also prefer restructured text as a format)
Converting from rst to markdown is simple enough with
pandoc but the part that always trips me
up is that ghost converts every newline character inside of a paragaph to a
<br> which is not what I expect.
As a reminder for future me, here’s the full command to convert from rst to markdown
pandoc -t markdown -f rst -o blog-post.markdown --no-wrap blog-post.rst
