jquery-comments

jquery-comments is a jQuery plugin for implementing an out-of-the-box commenting solution to any web application with an existing backend. It provides all the UI functionalities and ties them to callbacks that let you easily define what you want to do with the data. The library is highly customizable and very easy to integrate thanks to a wide variety of settings.

Quick start

1) Add the following to your HTML file

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery-comments.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/font-awesome.min.css"> <!-- Optional -->
 
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/lib/jquery-1.9.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-comments.js"></script>

2) Initialize the library

$('#comments-container').comments({
    profilePictureURL: 'https://app.viima.com/static/media/user_profiles/user-icon.png',
    getComments: function(success, error) {
        var commentsArray = [{
            id: 1,
            created: '2015-10-01',
            content: 'Lorem ipsum dolort sit amet',
            fullname: 'Simon Powell',
            profile_picture_url: 'https://app.viima.com/static/media/user_profiles/user-icon.png',
            upvote_count: 2,
            user_has_upvoted: false
        }];
        success(commentsArray);
    }
});

If you are not using Font Awesome for icons, you should replace the icons with custom images by overriding following options when initializing the library:

spinnerIconURL: 'img/spinner.gif',
upvoteIconURL: 'img/upvote-icon.png',
replyIconURL: 'img/reply-icon.png',
noCommentsIconURL: 'img/no-comments-icon.png',
