Hi there, I have just finished a wonky proof of concept based on
Cross-Origin Resource Sharing[1], You can view it and try it at
<http://>. Note that both the desqus
instance and the test page resides on my desktop machine, so they may be
offline/online at any time.

In it's current state, desqus is usable in the following ways:

 - You will be able to see the comments on a page, provided your browser
   supports CORS[1].
 - You will be able to register/login and post a comment on a page.

There might be security issues, as I just got it to work over CORS[1] and
haven't had time to polish it.

What you can do:

 - Join us in #desqus on Freenode
 - Follow the repository on GitHub
 - Contribute to the code, design or documentation on GitHub or contact me
   on IRC/<firstname at>/xmpp:address@hidden and I'll pull in your 
 - Join the desqus StatusNet group at

The application is built in Python on the Flask microframework with
Flask-WTF, Flask-SQLAlchemy and flask-bootstrap.

Hope you enjoy!
