It doesn’t look like I’ll be abandoning WordPress yet. The beta version of Ghost was released the other day and I promptly downloaded my freebie copy. However, I had second thoughts when I read the install instructions; simply getting it working on my development server required me to download four further pieces of software, including Python and MS Visual Studio. I downloaded them all, but got errors when I tried installing them. Since I’ve not got the time for debugging, I’ll leave it until the 1-click installer gets rolled out.
EDIT: Just tried to find the install instructions that I read and instead found this; turns out, it doesn’t require VS or Python after all, just node.js. It all looks very simple, so I’ll try it later.
