My favorite code editor is Sublime, but not default Sublime. Default Sublime is OK, but not great.

The Spacegray theme, by Gadzhi Kharkharov, makes it great. I could stare at it for hours.

I have a thing for dark interfaces when they're done really well.

Because I like coding in the Spacegray–Sublime environment so much, I decided it would be cool if my Ghost backend had a similar style.

Ghost is the little CMS that powers this site.

Default Ghost is pretty good, but I thought it would be nice to put more of an emphasis on the markdown editor (middle) over the navigation bar (left) and the content preview panel (right).

Here's the default ghost backend...

And here is my faux mds-spacegray theme...



All I had to do was edit the CSS file in core > built > assets > ghost.css. I saved the original just in case something got screwed up.

So far I've only styled the "New/Edit Post" and "Content" sections and nothing else. Since that's where I spend 95% of my time when using the Ghost CMS, that's all I really care about for now.

If you want to use this faux Spacegray Ghost Admin Theme, download these CSS files, and upload them into your core > built > assets > * folder. Make sure to save your original ghost.css if you wanna go back.
