Mastodon Comments

I’ve been continuing to rework my site lately, and have just thrown together a basic integration with Mastodon for post comments. Hopefully if you reply to this status, it should be picked up on the website on the next check (usually every 24hrs)

If it works, your comments should show up down below!

In theory, this should show up as a comment 😀

@johnvidler In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

@ChrisBull Hey neat, it works!

There's now a follow up to this post with the technical details over at

Dr. C. Niederstadt, MPH

So, we don't need Disqus any more!

Dr John Vidler

@Niederstadt possibly not, provided you dont mind the on-page updates being fairly slow to refresh… I figure that if I’ve already sent folks to Mastodon to post, only seeing the updates there immediately is fine

Dr John Vidler

@Niederstadt Are there any features of Disqus you use/like in particular? Just curious if there's anything more to add than I've already done on the site so far...

(Comments are updated when the site rebuilds, so may take up to 24 hours to appear!)
