Comments on the Blog Are Now Powered by GitHub


1 min read

I have wanted to move away from using Disqus for quite some time. Nothing personal against its service. Disqus is very popular among bloggers and works well, but it also adds a bunch of tracking scrips to every page it gets installed on. This seems too much to my taste, so I have been actively looking for an alternative. And what better alternative than using GitHub for storing comments?

GitHub won’t do this automatically, but there are services like utteranc.es, which help bridge the gap.  All you need is a public repository to store the comments as issues, and utterances will do the rest.

I found this service, thanks to my blogging buddy, George Ho.

How do you find GitHub issues as a commenting system? I’d love to hear your feedback. Try it by dropping a line right below 👇🏼
