I used Disqus on my personal blog. Last week I tried to make a Disqus alternative for myself called Cusdis. Here are the key features:
- Open source, easy to self-hostable (on Vercel or Docker). Users own their data.
- The embedded SDK to the website is lightweight (only ~5kb gzipped)
- All comments won't be displayed until it's approved by moderator.
- Email notification, one-click to approve new comment.
- Don't track users.
Here are some screenshots:
The tech stack:
- Svelte (the JS SDK)
My next step is to make it integrate with more existed system (hexo, hugo, wordpress, gatsby, etc.)
Hope you like it 🥰
