All of the commenting, none of the comments.

Echochamber.js is a third-party script you can install to add a simple comment form to your blog post or website.

why not just use disqus?

Because then there'd be a chance that someone would read the comments. You might have to read those comments. You don't want that.

When a user submits a comment, echochamber.js will save the comment to the user's LocalStorage, so when they return to the page, they can be confident that their voice is being heard, and feel engaged with your very engaging content. It does not make any HTTP requests. Since LocalStorage is only local, you and your database need not be burdened with other people's opinions.

  • 100% spam-proof!
  • Compatible with most blog and static site software

So you want the widget running on one server, and the host on another. I do this locally by messing with /etc/hosts like so:

    DocumentRoot "/Users/username/directory-of-widget"
    DocumentRoot "/Users/username/directory-of-page"
  • restart apache
  • run
    during dev (unix only)
  • run
    before making a pull request
  • make a pull request against the main repo referencing an issue if possible
