One of the things I struggled the most when starting this blog was finding the proper visual theme.
Even though I'm liking Ghost as a platform, the theme ecosystem is pretty deserted. It was already an issue for me in WordPress but here it's tenfold.
I managed to find by luck the free theme I'm currently using, Argon, while navigating through the list of Ghost theme repositories in GitHub.
The theme itself seems to only diverge a little bit from the starter blog for development, offered by Ghost.
It's far from perfect but I feel that it fits my current vision of the blog.
According to GitHub, the repository was updated 19 days ago. Unfortunately, it looks like it was a maintenance update. As such, I'm not expecting it to be improved upon any further.
Add support for Font Awesome
The theme is currently using
.svg files for a couple of social media sites and RSS. I'd like to open up the possibility of more icons using Font Awesome or something similar.
Add some Search functionality
This seems something missing from some themes in Ghost.
If possible, I'd like to add the search functionality from Liebling, another free theme.
Add a reading progress bar
From all of my needs, this is probably the least important. If I have it, great; otherwise, I can live without it.
Fix the mobile view
Some posts don't appear properly formatted in mobile screens. I still don't know the cause but it's a bit annoying.
Display the tags of a post
Currently, the tags are not being displayed. Ideally it needs to be possible for a normal reader to determine what categories a post belongs to.
Add an Archives page with a list of posts by category/tag
Related to the previous point. This will make navigating the blog much easier, especially for those looking for specific types of content.
I am not a web developer so this will probably take some time.
