I came across Utterances, a Github-linked comment system, and I thought it was fantastic!

Previously, I didn’t think much about adding a comment system because existing options like Disqus is spammy, and nobody wants to use Facebook comments. I also didn’t want to write my own comment system because it’s just a waste of time and database space.

The installation was really simple too! The entire process only took me less than 15 minutes:

  1. Create a new repo for my comments
  2. Install Utterances app to my new repo
  3. Fill in the blanks on the Utterances page to get a custom <script> tag
  4. Paste the tag where I want to appear in my blog
  5. Update my website!

Looking below, the default Github light theme fits right in with Minima theme’s design. Win!
