I could even see a way where recent comments are loaded via GitHub API by AJAX without having to recompile the whole site every time a comment is posted.
I’ve done something like this - the comments are actually stored in a database and then synced to GitHub after spam validation. Which means, I can just query the database for unpublished comments. See my previous comment on how this works.
The way welcomments does it is nice but I hesitate because of the price once it’s not beta anymore. I am a cheap person I know But my blog is not THAT important to me.
This is good feedback and like I said earlier, the prices are based on some overly cautious estimates to not shoot myself on the foot. I’ve been contemplating to just remove the pricing section for now, collecting some user data, and then give a 60-day heads up when I know what the pricing will look like. A lot of my friends that have successful products are saying I should charge more, but I want to keep it affordable ¯_(ツ)_/¯
And @iiroman I see your only testimonial is by yourself. I am open for a trade, review for a lifetime account, hehe. (Sorry, cheap, as I wrote)
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s see what we can do I would be up for giving early users that provide feedback some good deals!
