Used: jekyll 3.8.5
Jekyll powers this blog. There are several possibilities to accomplish comments on static pages. I opted for utterances, that automatically creates in a public GitHub repository an issue for the particular blog post. To make comments on a blog article, you need a GitHub account. That might be exclusive to non-technical readers, but my blog articles are mostly technical. Enjoy commenting and follow the thumb rule:
- See No Evil
- Speak No Evil
- Hear No Evil
Other unique alternatives also work well with Jekyll.
What about Disqus? Disqus is a business. I dislike the terms of service. You should evaluate yourself if Disqus is a necessary evil, you are willing to take.
