Daring Save Abandoned

A minimal theme for Ghost.

Project README

Daring is now maintained by Brandon Istenes on Github.

NO LONGER MAINTAINED I'm no longer maintaing this project having moved my blog to Jekyll. The last version this theme was tested against Ghost was version 1.00.


Inspired by John Gruber's Daring Fireball link blog, Daring is a similar theme for users of Ghost. It favours text over images and doesn't handle cover images or post images in Ghost.

Daring is based on the excellent Poole by Mark Otto.



Daring is built on top of Poole, which provides a great starting point for Jekyll but also works well when used with Ghost.

To download, visit the releases page.

Daring contains pre-built themes for the following colours:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Purple
  • Brown
  • Blue

Each of these pre-built themes can be found in the themes folder.

Simply, upload the compressed theme that you want to use to Ghost and activate it.
