In response to my recent dredging up the topic of finding alternatives to Disqus again:
and @kaushalmodi telling me to put my money where my mouth was, I’ve written up a post on how I integrated the self-hosted Python-based Isso comments system into my Hugo site.
Due to the way Isso works, it’s not as straightforward as it might be, but I’ve tried to cover all the steps involved. Any comments / corrections / _“that’s completely the wrong way to do it”_s ––to the usual address.
PS. I chose Isso because, amongst other thing, it allows you to import your existing Disqus hosted comments.
