JustComments is shutting down

Dear JustComments users,

I am very sad to inform you that I decided to shut down JustComments. My employment situation will change soon and I will not be able to run JustComments as a business. I am really sorry that I let you down and that I've failed to find a way to build a sustainable business for JustComments.

So here is what will happen and what I can do to help you migrate:

  1. the Export feature is already available for you. You can export all data you store in JustComments in JSON format from your Account page.
  2. if you are a paying customer, you may use the system till the end of 2020 for free within the limits of your normal usage. The system will be maintained but won't receive any new features.
  3. JustComments frontend has been always open-source (https://github.com/JustComments/jc-widget) so you can continue using it if you host the data yourself. There is an open-source backend implementation as well https://github.com/JustComments/jc-server which has a limited feature set but is easy to deploy and maintain.
  4. if you are a paying customer, feel free to reach out to me to receive a complete refund for your latest payment. You can still use the system for free till the end of 2020.

I started JustComments in 2017 and after almost 3 years on the market, unfortunately, a decision had to be made.

Let me know if I can do anything for you to simplify the migration for you.

Best regards, Alex
