Getting Started

In order to get up & running with JamComments, you'll need to do the following:

Creating an Account

To do so, use the button in the navigation above, or navigate to the JamComments application. Signing up for an account is free, but you'll be limited one site and be able to collect a maximum of 10 comments. If you'd like to collect comments beyond that, you'll need to sign up for a paid account.

Authentication is managed by Auth0 and subscriptions are managed by Stripe. I don't store any personally identifiable within the application.

Creating a Site

After logging into the dashboard, head to the "Sites" page and create a new one. Free plans can create one site, but if you need more, consider upgrading to premium plan.

Adding a Webhook

If you'd like to trigger a new build for your site after a new comment has been collected and approved, you can do so on your site's settings page, found at Settings > Sites > Your Site Name > Webhooks. Most of the popular Jamstack hosts provide this feature out-of-the-box, including Vercel and Netlify.

Enabling Auto-Approval (optional)

By default, new comments will not be automatically approved and published. If you'd like to do so, you can toggle on auto-approval by navigating to your site's settings page at Settings > Sites > Your Site Name > Webhooks.

Generating an API Key

Your site will need this in order to create new comments after they're submitted. To generate a key, navigate to your Account Settings and scroll down to the "API Key" section. There, you'll be able to generate a fresh key or replace an existing one.
