    All of Disqus’ JS code weights is well above 1 MB, what do think to evaluate an integrated alternative? Maybe something like Valine (light and easy to implement) as an added option could be more compatible with Publii’s philosophy.

    If you are familiar to HTML, you should be able to implement this easily. You would simply edit the /partial header .hbs file associated with the post.hbs (or similar name). You can find this by editing the post.hbs (or similar name) and looking for something like…

    {{>post-head}}

    …this is just an example. It should be the first line or thereabouts.

    Please keep in mind that themes vary, however, these guys are highly disciplined and they all follow a similar pattern of development.

    It could be interesting to have it included into the Publii GUI, but that is up to the coders. I seems like it would be a relatively simple add. Options on the web change quickly. For example, there are a lot of new social media sites and apps available and people are moving away from Facebook and Twitter by the millions every day. I imagine that keeping up with the options available is more than a fulltime job for somebody.

    In general, the “Disqus weight” should not affect your site’s loading time and thus destroy your PageSpeed score because it is loading (lazyloading) only when they appear in the browser’s viewport.

    This year, Publii will support plugins and this opens the way for the delivery of many extensions, including, for example, various commenting systems.

    Makes sense.

    I wish a generic code can be added at any specific point of the page, so to allow ANY integration.

    If you’re looking for something lightweight, more privacy-friendly, and open source, I would also consider Cusdis.

    There’s now an integration guide for Publii: https://cusdis.com/doc#/integration/publii
