REQUEST: Ghost (NodeJs blog)

I've been trying this out in Docker and it's actually pretty nifty. Wordpress is a bit (OK, a LOT) heavy for SBCs but NodeJs runs compiled JavaScript so it's a lot quicker.

There are a couple of these that are mature enough to run now and while they are nowhere near the scale of Wordpress, they are much lighter for our little machines. The backend is SQLite so there's no mucking around with complex database engines like Maria/MySQL. It has its own server so there's no Lighttpd, Apache, nGinX etc. either.

The Docker image was pretty much fire and forget (startup from cold is about 30 seconds on a Pi3 but YMMV) once it gets going though it's all plain sailing.

Definitely worth a look.
