Talkyard: Embedded comments for Jekyll (Disqus alternative)


#1

Hello, I built an embedded commenting system for Jekyll (and others), called Talkyard. It’s open source. And there’s hosting, so you can use it without any server.

Here’s a Jekyll site with getting-started instructions, and you can post test comments:

What are your thoughts? Feedback is welcome :- ) Any reason you would hesitate to use it? Or what do you like about it? If you want to use it and / or have questions, I’d be happy to help.

Talkyard is forum software too (see https://www.talkyard.io) so you can create e.g. a community at forum.yourwebsite.com that integrates with the Jekyll blog comments.

@kajmagnus that looks amazing! Thanks for open-sourcing and sharing it - I liked a lot how the pathways (with arrows) point to respective replies. :+1:

@pabloduo Ok :- ) Thanks for the feedback, it was interesting to hear what you think about the arrows.

(I got ill, hence the late reply)
