Disqus Comment Notifications

It’s the only feature for now! And it’s only half implemented!

If you use Disqus for comments, you can provide a post-comment JavaScript hook to notify post authors of the new comment. Here is some example JavaScript you can do enable comment notifications:

var newComment = function(comment) {
    var url = window.location.href + "disqus/";
    var params = {
        text: comment.text,
        csrfmiddlewaretoken: csrftoken  // you'll have to get this from somewhere
    $.post(url, comment, function(data) {
        // don't really need to do anything

var disqus_config = function() {
    this.callbacks.onNewComment = [function(comment) { newComment(comment); }];

The comment endpoint is located at <path_to_blog>/<year>/<month>/<day>/<slug>/disqus/. It accepts the following POST parameters:

  • id the Disqus ID of the comment
  • text the text of the comment
  • csrfmiddlewaretoken a CSRF token, if protection is enabled

Refer to the onNewComment callback on how to implement your own.

Future versions will connect with the Disqus API to do various things.
