Gatsby PLUGIN Commentator

This plugin adds comment feature to a GatsbyJS website. The goal is to abstract out all the details for posting and storing of comments in a GatsbyJS website.

It gives a barebone commenting system which gives the developer consuming this plugin the total control of the look and feel of gatsby-plugin-commentator elements.

Kindly star it if you find it useful! Gracias!!!


See it here


npm install gatsby-plugin-commentator
// or
yarn add gatsby-plugin-commentator

Include it among the plugins in the gatsby-config.js file of a GatsbyJS website project folder.

module.exports = {
    plugins: [
        // ......
            resolve: "gatsby-plugin-commentator",
            {website: ""}

Lastly, make a DOM element available at any component rendered with id="commentContainer"

<!-- Single post listing page -->
<section id="commentContainer"></section>

That's all!
