Cactus Comments is a federated comment system built on Matrix. It respects your privacy, and puts you in control. The entire thing is completely free and open source. Interested?
The easiest way to try Cactus Comments out is following our quick start guide. You can do it locally on a completely static site. If you already have a website running on WordPress, Hugo or something else entirely, check the integrations page to see if we got you covered. If you run your own Matrix server, you can self-host Cactus Comments. We would love it, if you engaged with the community or otherwise contributed. 💕.
Disclaimer: we strive to keep Cactus Comments a “production ready” comment system. Please bear in mind that the system is still new and many features will be implemented later.
