    Is there anyone else running Ghost blogging software as a primary CMS with Discourse forums as their community software? If so, how do you like it? What's the resource usage like?

    This thread might be in the wrong place, but wasn't sure where to put it as it's asking about both a blog and a forum. :p

    haha indeed

    NodeBB also natively supports Ghost blogging too so that would be an option. Haven't tried Discourse myself so no idea

    One thing that immediately pops out at me between NodeBB and Discourse is that NodeBB seems a lot lighter on resources than Discourse is.

    Based on personal experience?
    Seems a lot of people prefer to use Discourse.

    nope it's a known fact NodeBB performs better and uses less resources than Discourse out of the box :)
