      Discourse
      Discourse is a simple, flat forum, where replies flow down the page in a line. Replies are attached to the bottom and top of each post, so you can optionally expand the context of the conversation – without breaking your flow.
      Jetpack
      Jetpack wraps webpack to create a smoother developer experience. Jetpack can be used instead of webpack, webpack-cli, webpack-dev-server and webpack-dev-middleware without writing any configuration. Jetpack is a thin wrapper around webpack, and can be extended with any of the webpack configuration.

      Review ofSquarespaceSquarespace

      I inherited the SquareSpace site I support. SquareSpace may be great if all you want is a really pretty site; it's great for that. But if you use commerce and need anything more than the simplest transactions, SquareSpace will be the bain of your existence. I have it in my stack because it's my job to use and maintain it, not because I like it. The documentation is rudimentary at best, there is no published API, and tech support won't help you if you use "developer mode" - which is a must if you want to do anything more than the simplest modifications. Speaking of which, I've found the tech support to be consistently lackluster; opening a ticket is most often nothing more than an exercise in frustration. Most problems I've reported are treated as if they are a feature request rather than something broken - "we're considering adding that feature in the future" is the common response.

      The quality of available data (especially for commerce) and ease of integration with other services is also deplorable. I spend the majority of my time developing workarounds for the lack of features, customization and integration that are the hallmark of this platform.

      I will move my workplace off of this platform as soon as if feasible.

      Namecheap may not be the CHEAPEST hosting provider (check out GoDaddy's disturbingly cheap shared hosting ) but I would also not consider it expensive. Hosting and domain registration are about $9 a month typically. Considering how high quality Namecheap's products are and how much customer support Namecheap provides, I would honestly expect their prices to be higher. But if you're patient like me and buy your domain and hosting package on Black Friday, you can get a year of registration and hosting for only $2.00!

      For someone looking for a hosting provider that is a perfect mixture of budget and features, Namecheap is the one!

      Also, I can't stress how great their customer support is. I would say their customer support agents are close to rivalling the support agents at WPEngine, and that's saying a lot because WPEngine is probably one of the most expensive hosting options.

      Review ofDisqusDisqus

      Have been using Disqus for a long time now, and have always been satisfied. Occasionally it's been a little slow to load, but I think it's gotten better over time. The UI has improved over time, too. Very easy to integrate into my Ghost blog, and complements it well in terms of styling. Very happy with it.

      Namecheap is the best domain registrar in the universe, hands down. They provide a solid product (the domain-name blood that keeps us flowing online) at an extremely reasonable price, amazing management tools with a solid UI/UX on the control panel, and the CEO did an AMA on reddit (we love reddit).

      Disqus is a wonderful (and free) API/software platform to integrate for comments when you don't want to limit yourself to Facebook and have no interest in reinventing something done so well.

      It is a solid, A-1 piece of software.

      Disqus is a nice well-known and easy to use commenting engine, plays well with most any web-facing integration.

      A blog without a database generally needs an offsite commenting system. Disqus is mine.
