11ty, Webmentions and Bridgy [WebDev Log 01]

going crazy with style

This post is a work in progress!

Since I've upgraded pretty much everything here, I'm going back to one of the fundamental problems of my website:

Comments & Interactions

So, thanks to the amazing posts of Max Böck and Sia Karamalegos I'm trying to implementing Webmentions and Bridgy with little success :|

Import the Staticman Oldies

Back in the day, when I was writing for my Blog-Webzine Xabacadabra, I was using Staticman after dropping Disqus for good.

Sadly, it appears that Staticman wasn’t updated for a while and still has a couple of issues with spam & stuff. Furthermore, it requires a lot of work to be configured (Dimitrii Kabardinov explained everything in detail, if you’re interested.

Utterances

Utterances works really well: looks nice, it's easy, light, cool and all, but...

Needs a Github account in order to comment something.

Fine if you have a dev blog in english I guess, not so fine if you've a generic webiste in another language I'm afraid.

Bridgy

More the Webmentions per se, I'm pretty intrigued with Bridgy.

I'll try to set up things and, if happy, stick with only Webmentions + Bridgy.
