Commenting

Allowing visitors to post comments to a site built with a static site generator such as Jekyll, Hugo, or Gatsby is often one of the first hurdles developers face. Fortunately, there is a growing ecosystem of tools available to add comments to your Jamstack site. Before we get into the list, it’s worth mentioning a few alternative approaches to commenting:
