    blogger2ghost - Blogspot JSON migrator plugin for Ghost

    blogger2ghost allows you to convert your Blogspot blog content into one compatible with Ghost.



    1. Set your blog's feed to Full in your dashboard: Settings | Other | Allow Blog Feed
    2. Get posts in JSON format from your blog using <your blog>/feeds/posts/default?alt=json&max-results=10000 and save it to some file (eg. data.json)
    3. $ npm install blogger2ghost -g
    4. $ blogger2ghost -i data.json > ghost.json
    5. Surf to ghost/settings/labs at your blog
    6. Use Import controls to import the data to your blog

    Alternatively you can install and invoke it as a library (ie. $ npm install blogger2ghost and node_modules/blogger2ghost -i data.json)


    Remove tables from posts:

    $ blogger2ghost -i data.json > ghost.json --remove-tables

    Supply authors for multi-user Ghost:

    This will attribute imported posts to existing users, you should first create the users within Ghost.

    1. Create authors.json file e.g.:

          "John Smith": { // key should match author name from blogger
              "id": 7, // id is arbitrary
              "email": "" // email is used for lookup, must exist
          "Jane Doe": {
              "id": 8,
              "email": ""
    2. Run $ blogger2ghost -i data.json > ghost.json -a authors.json

    Download images from Blogger:

    This will download all images from existing Blogger posts and place them into a directory ready for upload to Ghost. It will also replace urls with normalised paths that will load from the local content directory of Ghost.

    # 'blogger-images' directory will be created
    $ blogger2ghost -i data.json > ghost.json -d blogger-images --download-limit 10


    var convert = require('blogger2ghost');
    // json to convert goes to first
    // options (authors etc.) go to second param
    // extension callback as third
    convert({...}, {}, function(data, post) {
        // manipulate data based on post fields (see blogger data content above)
        // you can see data fields available at
        // once you are done with manipulation, return result
        return data;


    • ekaragodin - Fixed post import with non latin titles and tags
    • homerjam - Prettification of the output, support for multiple authors and downloading images
    • Mark Baird - Downloaded images correctly, fix duplicate tags and allow post content to be left in HTML format
    • Murphy Randle - Updated to-markdown to use correct invocation
    • Kiko Beats - Removed extra newlines after images as that broke image links.
