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

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.
