@carl I'm with @davidak on the 3rd-party thoughts. Why not barkdull.org/software/hashover ? It seems greatly underrated and can be self hosted using flat-files for data storage.

@mikael @carl as i understand it it's still a 3rd-party service where the comments are loaded from, that you host yourself

and unlike isso or commento it's written in PHP, which is known for having massive security issues (look at number of CVEs). you use a static page because you don't want PHP on the server! else you could just use Wordpress which has comments

posativ.org/isso/
commento.io/

all this is not really a solution

@davidak @carl I wouldn't go as far as calling it a 3rd party service? It's software which is part of the blog stack and running on the same server. PHP is dead simple and works anywhere™️. I love it. Security-wise it's probably fine, we're not exactly talking about banking.

Commento seems to require a full fledged PostgreSQL installation. Regarding Isso I think the documentation puts it well: "If you think hosting a web application written in Python is as easy as one written in PHP, you are wrong."

PHP and flat file data storage ftw.
