Announcing my latest open source project, in collaboration with @carl

🌵 Cactus Comments - Federated web comments, based on the Matrix protocol.



@asbjorn @carl is there a way to only post if you’re logged into a Matrix instance to prevent spam?

Long answer: Yes, in a pretty hacky way. You can do it in two ways:
- manually setting in all the comment section rooms you want to require authentication for
- disabling guest registration entirely for the default homeserver

But those hacks will both generate user-visible errors.

See this issue for progress on doing it "cleanly":
