Moving blog comments to Utterances
Since I moved swyxkit to use Github Issues as CMS last year I also wrote my own Github
<Comments /> component. However there were subtle things that were buggy and the design didnt look all that good:
There’s a well known project called Utterances that pulls comments from github issues AND lets you login so that you can make comments right on the page. I know that this is mostly a better experience. So I decided to move it over:

You can see the PR here #163. i mostly put it off for so long because i didnt quite get how to use utterances at first, but it took only a few mins of actually trying it to figure it out, and then to figure out how to add it to Sveltekit.
