Add a commenting platform to a Svelte app
A short intro on how to add a commenting platform to a Svelte app using commento.io.
Happy new year!
Initial feedback was to allow visitors to leave comments and have discussions. I took that feedback and found www.commento.io which looked lightweight enough and straitforward to implement.
What I did:
- Sign up at www.commento.io
- Create a Svelte component that displays comments
The component is as simple as this (corresponding pull request):
<svelte:head> <script src="https://cdn.commento.io/js/commento.js"></script> </svelte:head> <h2>Comments, Feedback, Thoughts</h2> <div id="commento" />
You can style the commenting platform by providing a
data-css-override attribute to the
script tag, for example:
<script src="https://cdn.commento.io/js/commento.js" data-css-override="http://example.com/my-custom-styling.css"></script>
Additional configuration options can be found in the documentation.
Are there other alternatives you have experience with? What do you like / dislike about them?
