Howdy. After being disappointed with current comment systems for static websites I decided to develop very lightweight open source comment system for static websites. Today I am really happy to announce first pre-alpha version, so, without further ado, here it is: Kommentator Kommentator is open source, lightweight, dependency-free comments system for websites. Main focus are static websites or blogs, but it can be used on any website. Goals of this project: provide a hassle-free way to enable commenting on your blog/website so you can carry on with your life and blogging.
Current state of blogging After installing Hugo on this blog I came to the problem of enabling comments. In case you are not aware, Hugo is a static website generator. You write each post as a Markdown file and then run hugo “build” process to generate static HTML. “What?” I hear you ask. “Static HTML?” I see your lips saying while your eyes increase in size twofold. I have to agree that I also can feel the smell of 90’s when I hear about static HTML.
