Today, there aren't many great options for supporting comments on a blog powered by a static site generator. What does exist is either too complicated to set up, or involves selling your soul to a third-party provider that bastardizes your privacy, kills your site's performance, and compromises your SEO (👋, Disqus!). The tradeoffs are just too high.
JamComments is different, trying to be nothing more than a stupid-simple comment service. It's easy to et up and doesn't leave you feeling guilty.
JamComments integrates directly into your site's build process, generating cold, hard HTML. Comments become a crawlable, SEO-friendly piece of your site's content -- not an afterthought.
By being "stupid-simple", JamComments is too dumb to give a rip about selling your readers garbage or collecting any bit of information to resell. It just collects & serve comments. No more wondering how Disqus is profiting from you or your readers' data.
Easily approve pending comments or delete the ones you don't want to keep. Auto-approval of comments is also possible with a simple toggle.
Whenever a comment status changes or a new one is created, a webhook endpoint of your choosing can be hit, triggering a new build of your site.
It's completely free. No card required.
Each integration comes with simple default styles that you're free to adjust as desired.
Create an API key, determine whether comments will be automatically approved. That's about it.
