      pros, cons and recent comments
      Probably better but only if you want your site to use GitHub issues as a way of storing comments. Beneficial for Jekyll / GitHub Pages websites, though.

      Lyket vs Disqus
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Lyket is more about buttons then commenting. So if you need to just add like or clap buttons it is better than Disqus reactions.
