A reusable django app that extends the django-contrib-comments framework with:

  1. Thread support, so comments may be nested
  2. The maximum thread level can be set up either for all models or on a per app.model basis
  3. Optional notification of follow-up comments via email
  4. Mute links on follow-up emails to allow follow-up notification cancellation
  5. Comment confirmation via email when users are not authenticated
  6. Comments hit the database only when have been confirmed
  7. Template tags to list/render the last N comments posted to any given list of app.model pairs
  8. Comments can be formatted in Markdown, reStructuredText, linebreaks or plain text
  9. Emails sent through threads (can be disable to allow other solutions, like a Celery app)

Read the documentation at:

Includes three demo sites and a limited test suite. If you commit code, please consider adding proper coverage (especially if it has a chance for a regression) in the test suite.

Run the tests with: python test

And see the live demos:

  1. simple: Single model with non-threaded comments
  2. simple_threads: Single model with threaded comments up to level 2
  3. multiple: Several models with comments, and a maximum thread level defined on per app.model basis.

Admin access with user admin, password admin. DBs cleared every 30 minutes.
