Intro

This is a short script to convert the LiveRe comments to disqus-compatible Generic(WXR) format.

Steps

Step 1

Go to LiveRe Admin, change the data start/end date, which generates a table with 10 comments per page.

Step 2

  • Right click the table on Chrome (or whatever browsers that do the work), click "Inspect".
  • Find the "table" element in the material list.
  • Right click on it and select "Copy -> Copy element".
  • Create a new file naming table_<page_number>.html in the "html_tables" folder.
  • Repeat this for all the pages. Or use some crawler to finish this step.

Step 3

Change the func_switch to 1 at the end of migration_main.py. Run the code, and get the json file, livere_comments.json. Check the whole file and make sure everything is good.

Step 4

Change the func_switch to 2 at the end of migration_main.py. Run the code, and get the Generic(WXR) file, disqus_import.xml'.

Step 5

Go to Disqus Admin, import the file.

Note

  • My code does not deal with comment thread. Please implement it yourself if you need it.
  • I prepended "【LiveRe】" to every comment. If you don't like it, remove at around Line 197 in "html_to_disqus_xml.py"
  • No IP available at LiveRe, so I set the exported value as "127.0.0.2".
  • No avartar available. But I think it is possible to add it.

About

Format the comment in LiveRe into an XML file, which can be imported in Disqus Admin.
