Ghost is a free publishing platform which has JavaScript programming language flexibility. It's easy to use, files could be downloaded and great for content writing. It's hassle free and user friendly for beginners.

I like how simplified the UI was. You really only had access to exactly what you needed. Unlike WordPress where you have unlimited options that you never touch.

There are a few things that are not super easy to customize.

When a new version comes out you don't automatically get the new features. They come at an added cost meaning you have to keep changing and upgrading.
