commento.io, a free, privacy conscious and self-hosted (or pay-what-you-want) comment system, great alternative to Disqus.

I have open sourced many parts of Remarkbox but the whole codebase isn't open source

Remarkbox isn't self hosted at this point.

Note: comment O dot io, NOT comment dot io. The latter will try to install a Windows executable on your device.

@eldelacajita @switchingsocial I‘m not happy about Akismet Integration. Can it be disabled?

@eldelacajita
If users are signed up with commento.io can they comment on any blog using the system?

If so, what is the take up like for commento.io?

@eldelacajita @switchingsocial I have been looking into JustComments. No ads or tracking. ReCaptcha available but not required. Keyword blacklist. Subscribe by email option. Pricing is based on usage.

@rockthrower @switchingsocial Do you know what "serverless" means in this case? It does seem to have a backend running in some server...

@eldelacajita @switchingsocial Not exactly sure, I know it uses AWS. The developer is really responsive, though, if you want to ask. He got back right away with answers to my questions. I am not a technical person so was looking for assurance that my visitors wouldn't be tracked.

@eldelacajita
"self hosted" is the key word here! I'd heard of it but thought it was only pay-to-use. (Silly me).
