Isso

Introducing Isso: the featherweight champion in the world of commenting platforms, ready to knock out the heavyweight Disqus with a one-two punch of Python and JavaScript! Imagine a world where your website visitors can sprinkle their thoughts like fairy dust across your pages, all while staying as incognito as a superhero in disguise. That's right, Isso supports anonymous commentary, so your users' secret identities are safe with us. And for those who like to express themselves with a bit of pizzazz, Markdown is on the menu, allowing for comments as stylish as a tuxedo at a tech gala. But wait, there's more! Commenters can ninja-edit or vanish their own words within a 15-minute window – talk about power at your fingertips! Behind the scenes, Isso is powered by SQLite, treating your precious comments like treasured keepsakes rather than just another byte in the Big Data universe. Want to switch from Disqus or WordPress? Isso rolls out the red carpet for your existing comments, ensuring a migration as smooth as a hoverboard ride. Embedding Isso is as easy as pie, with just a single JavaScript file standing between you and comment nirvana. And let's not forget, hosting Isso on RepoCloud won't break the bank – it's like finding a luxury suite at the price of a backpacker's hostel. So why wait? Give your website the gift of gab with Isso on RepoCloud today!
