Setting Options

You can both set options with plugin options on Node side and set options in client config file on Browser side.

With Plugin Options
import { commentPlugin } from "vuepress-plugin-comment2";

// .vuepress/config.ts
export default {
  plugins: [
      provider: "Artalk", // Artalk | Giscus | Waline | Twikoo

      // other options here
      // ...

But there are some limitations you should remember:

  • provider, locales and other resource related option must be set in plugin options.

    To ensure tree-shaking works, we must optimize entries at node so that bundler can understand which resource should be included in the final bundle.

    These options will be marked with Plugin Option Only in config reference.

  • Options which can not be serialized to JSON must be set in client config.

    Options that receive complicated values (e.g.: Function) can not be set in plugin options, as plugins are running under Node.js environment, so we can not pass these values and their contexts to browser.

    These options will be marked with Client Config Only in config reference.

Adding Comment

This plugin globally registers a component <CommentService />.

  • If you are a user, you should use alias and layout slots to insert the component. We recommended you to insert the comment component (<CommentService />) after the <PageNav /> component, and here is a demo with default theme.
  • If you are a theme developer, you should insert this component in the layout of your theme.

Comment Status

By default, <CommentService /> component is enabled globally, and you can use comment option in both plugin options and page frontmatter to control it.

  • You can disable it locally by setting comment: false in page frontmatter.

  • To keep it globally disabled, please set comment to false in the plugin options. Then you can set comment: true in page frontmatter to enable it locally.

Comment ID

You can set commentID option in page frontmatter to customize comment ID, which is used to identify comment storage item to use for a page.

By default it will be the path of the page, which means if you are deploying the site to multiple places, page with same content across sites will share the same comment data.

Comment Services

Currently, you can choose from Giscus, Waline, Twikoo and Artalk.
