Using gitalk as a commenting system

What is Gitalk

Gitalk is a commenting system that can be used as an alternative to Disqus. Gitalk uses the Github issues to track comments.

I found it really nice. I think developers should use something like gitalk instead of disqus because it's open-source, uses github issues to track comments.

Also, if you plan on using gitalk and are building a vue or gridsome app. Here are plugins for you that make adding Gitalk to your app easier.

The problem with Gitalk and Utterances is that it only targets GitHub users, not general public.

True, but when you are blogging about dev you expect your users to have a github account.
