Comments for this blog use pelican’s comment system

06.01.2016 by Dirk Olmes

One thing that annoyed me while switching my blog to pelican was the lack of a good comment option. My motivation for self-hosting the blog is to have control over my data and that includes comments! The use of a cloud service like Disqus obviously defeats this purpose.

I sat down and did my own pelican plugin for comments back then. It was fun to learn how to write pelican plugins but I only ever finished a very basic implementation.

Recently, I stumbled over the official pelican plugin for static comments and decided to give it a try. It turns out to be very similar in what I did but it’s far more feature rich. So I ditched my plugin and switched over - that was easy.
