      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.

      Many websites contain secret messages and comments. Imagine you could make these messages visible or even add your own. Now imagine that this function would exist everywhere and only the users themselves would have control over it. Wouldn't that be great?

      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.
