Prerendered static comments for static websites

Welcomments is a comment system for static site generator based websites such as ones built with Jekyll or Hugo.

It connects to your GitHub repository and commits every incoming comment as a JSON file to your site's _data/ directory. If you're using Netlify, every commit to the main branch triggers a new build, which then regenerates all the posts and comments as static prebuilt HTML. Prebuilt HTML is fast, secure, and SEO-friendly. No ads, no trackers, optional Javascript, and no Disqus-ting stuff!

Hey everybody!

I'm Iiro, the person behind Welcomments - a privacy focused comment system that pre-renders comments as static HTML. Right now, it works with Jekyll and Hugo, but there are plans for Eleventy, Gatsby, and more.

There's a neat installation wizard that makes a pull request to your GitHub repository, so that you can get started in minutes: https://console.welcomments.io

It's *completely free* in beta - go ahead and try it out and let me know what you think :-)
