Quick start

1) Add the following to your HTML file

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery-comments.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/font-awesome.min.css"> <!-- Optional -->

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/lib/jquery-1.9.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-comments.js"></script>

2) Initialize the library

    profilePictureURL: '',
    getComments: function(success, error) {
        var commentsArray = [{
            id: 1,
            created: '2015-10-01',
            content: 'Lorem ipsum dolort sit amet',
            fullname: 'Simon Powell',
            profile_picture_url: '',
            upvote_count: 2,
            user_has_upvoted: false

If you are not using Font Awesome for icons, you should replace the icons with custom images by overriding following options when initializing the library:

spinnerIconURL: 'img/spinner.gif',
upvoteIconURL: 'img/upvote-icon.png',
replyIconURL: 'img/reply-icon.png',
noCommentsIconURL: 'img/no-comments-icon.png',


  • jQuery >= 1.9.0
  • Font Awesome (optional)
