Ghost's API is currently in beta, but is fully functioning as a way to grab read only data of your blog.

Some of the benefits of using the public API are that it allows you to create a list of your most recent posts or adding a tag menu to your blog.

Here is how you can enable the API:

  1. Log into the admin section of your blog
  2. In the left hand column, click on Labs

  3. And then at the bottom, check the box that says "Public API"
    Public API checkbox

Now the API is enabled and you can use its functionality however you want.
