I like GitHub a lot. That’s why I host many of my projects on it and even my blog. In that spirit, I decided to code up a (mildly convoluted) way of posting comments on my static Jekyll blog using GitHub forks.
If you click on the “post a comment” link, below, it will – after checking with you first – fork the source for this page using your GitHub account and then let you edit it. After you add your comment, you can simply submit it as a pull request.
At the very end of the document, you’ll find a line that looks like:
* github-username - January 1, 2012 - Your comment...
All you need to do is copy this line, add your GitHub username and your comment (written in Markdown syntax) then submit a pull request. You’re also welcome to make changes to the post if you have any suggestions for tweaks. It’s not elegant but it is a novelty! Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
