        This comment system is so well done, right up there with Medium’s. Love that you can even use HTML for formatting!

        Definitely going to try to implement this in my Gatsby project.

        Thank you, Kaj!

            Ok :- ) You're on Gatsby 1, or Gatsby 2? The Gatsby plugin is for Gatsby 1 — haven't had time to look into Gatsby 2 yet. Where's your blog b.t.w., if I may ask? would be interesting to have a look

                I actually just tested your plugin on Gatsby 2, and it works, right out of the box! So either that means that your plugin is highly compatible, or Gatsby is — or both :-)

                As for my use cases for your Talkyard plugin: I'm working on two projects, one is my blog techstacker.com, which I strongly consider moving to Gatsby.

                The other project is a Food Network app which needs to be highly scalable. Your Talkyard plugin would be excellent for it as far as the UX, but I'm a bit in limbo about using Gatsby for a site that might grow huge and fast — I think Nextjs might be a better fit for that one. But then again, the Gatsby team seems to be keen on improving scalability moving forward, so I'm not sure.

                What's your opinion about Nextjs, any thoughts of making your plugin compatible there as well? :)

                Once again, Talkyard is incredible, the more I use it the more I like it. Keep up the great work!

                    Ok thanks, and thanks for the info about Gatsby 2, I'll add a note in the readme that someone has tested with G 2 and it worked :- )

                    Thanks for the link to the blog, ... interesting article about website vs web app. People often ask if I build a homepage, or a website, or an app, and ... I've started saying, nowadays, that I build a "discussion tool". Hmm, "platform" is another good word yes.

                    About Nextjs: I actually looked into Nextjs recently, having in mind to create an embedded comments plugin for Nextjs. I didn't find any quick-and-simple Nextjs getting started instructions with beautiful blog themes though, so I didn't continue building a plugin, at that time.

                    Not sure if it's possible to build a plugin for Nextjs? I got the impression that everyone seems to build their own website more or less from the ground and up, in Nextjs? And if everyone does things in his/her own way, ... would a plugin I created then work for everyone, or for just me, I was wondering. (Any thoughts about this?)

                        Thank you for reading my article! Yeah I've gotten a good response on using “platform” as a way of simplifying the tech language :-)

                            This is also just a reply, with some minor improvements, namely, it includes a dot. And ends with a question mark — don't you like question marks?

                              Do you support Oauth?

                                  Gmail, FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, GitHub supported currently. At the end of this week I have in mind to test deploy a bit OIDC support — and a bit later, custom OAuth2 providers will also be supported (as long as they're not too different from OIDC).

                                  What OAuth provider do you have in mind? (OAuth2, right? Not OAuth1?)

                                  You're looking for Single Sign-On for a blog? (Or newspaper? source code docs?)
                                  Or do you want to combine OAuth with other ways to sign up, too?

                                  (Looking at your @username it seems you're in / from Sweden? Me too :- ))

                                      We are gonna use a Customer Data Platform to manage registered users / subscribers. And that platform needs to speak/integrate with Talkyard, which I think it can do through OAuth.
                                      Sorry, I am not the tech-expert on this, but if you refer me to any of your articles on this subject I can let a developer have a look and maybe get back with some questions.

                                      (om du vill kan vi höras per email/telefon; jag skulle tro att du är bekant med sajten det handlar om)

                                          I'll send you an email.

                                          I think if you say to a developer that I wonder if the site uses OIDC (OpenID Connect), maybe Keycloak or Microsoft Azure AD, or a custom OAuth2 implementation, then s/he will know what it is about, or s/he can websearch for the words and find out.

                                          Another way to integrate with Talkyard is via API and an API secret — one can combine both API (for e.g. upserting contents) and OAuth (for singing in).

                                              Trying to comment and curious about where Talkyard will position my comment. Also I'm wondering what's the formula for ordering.

                                                  Hi Bernard, the comments are sorted by like votes, and also taking into account how many people actually read the comment. (There are Disagree votes too — but they won't move a comment downwards.)

                                                                                          Yes, editing your own anon comment is possible. That's good. And where do I find system requirements? Will it feel OK with 512MB RAM on a cloud server?

Here's Talkyard's blog comments homepage, there's SaaS hosting also: https://www.talkyard.io/blog-comments. If you want to get started quickly without installing, and then later on export comments to your own server, maybe that's something to consider.

                                                                                                  About RAM and a cloud server: Ubuntu and 2 GB RAM currently (that's $10/mo at Vultr or DigitalOcean, Linode etc) — that's because there're 2 JVMs, one for the app server, and one for ElasticSearch. I'd like to tweak the JVM settings so that only 1 GB is needed.

It's because I set position left: -1 in order to make the letter-circles appear more vertically aligned with the horizontal bar above (the one with the text "X replies"). I've since removed left: -1, but haven't deployed the changes to the server yet.

Kul att höra av från dig :- ) Ja detta är faktiskt samma datorprogram, som det jag började bygga på Tific. Dock, de första åren byggde jag något som ingen var intresserad av (jag fokuserade på en layout i ett 2D-träd och horisontell scrollning). Till slut gav jag upp, och hittade ett jobb igen. I Oslo :- ) Nu bor jag i Stockholm dock. Sänder dig ett meddelande på Facebook :- )

                                                                                                                                                                Själv har jag varit en del av Flarum communityn och översatt deras forum till svenska m.m.
                                                                                                                                                                Jag hade gärna velat välja Talkyard som forum för den sida jag håller på med men märkte väldigt snabbt att installationen till localhost för test eller till sida (köpt av one.com och godaddy) är överdrivet krånglig och tidskrävande i jämförelse med andra forum.
                                                                                                                                                                Är detta något ni kommer satsa på att göra betydligt enklare i framtiden? Finns forumet även i andra språk, t.ex svenska?
                                                                                                                                                                Har läst igenom er sida men hittar ingen community där man kan komma med förslag eller få hjälp.
                                                                                                                                                                Vore bra om det var lite tydligare. Och text-format delen är väldigt limiterad, försökte skriva in en if-sats och se om man kunde få texten att se mer tydlgare ut för kod än text men det gick inte.

                                                                                                                                                                    Intressant att installationen är krånglig. Är det något särskilt steg du tänker på, eller helt enkelt att det är många olika steg?

                                                                                                                                                                    Jag skulle gärna förenkla installationen. Någon har föreslagit ett skript som automatiskt installear Docker, konfigurerar Ubuntu och allting, så man inte behöver köra flera små-skript själv. Då kanske de typ 10 stegen kan kortas ner till bara 5 steg. Fast detta kommer nog dröja ett tag. Jag är rädd att skriptet själv skulle innehålla någon bugg, och fler abstraktionslager —> svårare att felsöka :- /

Takyard använder Commonmark, http://commonmark.org. Man kan indentera 4 spaces, eller skriva tre backquotes i rad: ``` före och efter kod-snutten, så blir det monospace-källkods-formattering.

If I've written somewhere that only GitHub is supported, plz tell me and I can edit & fix that :- ) (or did you have something else in mind? with authorization scheme?)

                                                                                                                                                                                  Whilst your comment says something meaningful (it asks about its placement).

                                                                                                                                                                                  The blog author can use hidden Bury votes, to move "Thanks" and "Me too" like comments, downwards, so that the readers will see the more interesting and meaningful comments instead. Whilst the people who posted those "Thanks" and "Me too" etc comments, won't see that there's a Bury vote, so they won't feel sad about that. Nothing wrong with saying "Thanks" or posting test comments here — and at the same time, not so interesting for others to read. :- ) (There're Like votes too but ... maybe one don't want to Like vote everything.)

Ok, interesting to hear about via-Hugo and machine learning :- )
