Test post for a Buzz based Blog Commenting system

There isn't much to see here just yet, but I am just writing this as a test harness for a simple commenting system that I am developing using Buzz affectionatly named commently.

Maybyly I am taking the naming too far, but this is a simple service that allows you to embed comments into your blogging platform.

The comments are synchronized with Buzz based on the feed that you push to Buzz.

It is super simple to start, simply embed the following javascript into your blog or website

The 10 second "Getting Started" guide

var handler = function(data) 
{ // data is an Buzz activity 
  // data.replies is a list of the replies to the thread 
  // data.likes is a list of the user likes on the thread 
<script src="http://commently.appspot.com/lib/comments.js?title=[Blog Title]&username=[Username]&callback=handler"></script>

Simply replace [Username] with your buzz name (paul.kinlan in my case); replace [Blog Title] with a url encoded title of your article as it appears in your ATOM or RSS feed; fill out the "handler" function with logic to construct a nice looking area for the comments.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
