Minigeist, like Upholsterygeist is a minimalist Ghost theme available here, built to use the least possible CSS whilst still supporting nice social buttons, responsive layout and tidy typography. This site runs it, so you're looking at it now.


  • Endlessly responsive
  • Typography friendly
  • 4kb CSS
  • Syntax highlighting using highlight.js baked in


  1. Download the files using the GitHub .zip download
  2. Unzip the files and rename the folder to 'Minigeist'
  3. Upload the folder to 'ghost/content/themes'
  4. Restart ghost
  5. Go to General under the Settings nav, and select Minigeist under the Theme dropdown
