Ghost casper sidebar


Casper Sidebar - a Ghost blog



FREE

Description

This theme 'Casper Sidebar' is simply the default Ghost theme with a sideba. It's suited for users wanting to share information, such as snippets, recipes etc. It looks organized while keeping the post area narrow to minimize the appearance of wide empty code blocks. This enables you to have short snippets without having your blog looking too empty and sparse, making it hard to read.

It can also be used for any other type of content where blog posts are going to be relatively short but valuable, e.g recipes, lists, instructions etc. It's easily adaptable to any niche as changing only one background is enough to transform it's look. The typography and colours can easily be changed as it uses a LESS file containing all variables.

It also has the Bootstrap Twitter library included so you have a wide variety of pre-made styles.
