Integrate third-party apps with Ghost!

Work with your existing tools.

Using integrations that take no more than a few minutes to set up, you can connect your Ghost site to hundreds of the most popular apps and tools.

Whether you need to automate workflows, connect your email list, build a community, or embed products from your e-commerce store, our integrations library has hundreds of tutorials for you.


In addition, you can connect your Ghost site to more than 1,000 external services using the official integration with Zapier.

Zapier sets up automation with Triggers and Actions, which allows you to create and customize a wide range of connected applications.

Example: When someone new subscribes to a newsletter on a Ghost site (Trigger) then the contact information is automatically pushed into MailChimp (Action).

Here are the most famous Ghost<>Zapier automation templates:

Custom integrations

At the heart of Ghost is a robust JSON API designed to easily create, manage, and retrieve content.

From the Integrations page within Ghost Admin, custom Ghost integrations with dedicated API keys and webhooks can be created.

Beyond that, the API allows you to build entirely custom publishing apps. You can send content from your favorite desktop editor, create a custom interface for handling editorial workflow, or use Ghost as a wholly headless CMS with a custom front end.

The Ghost API is thoroughly documented and straightforward for developers of almost any level.
