Get and launch Commentator

Get Commentator jar file

You can download the Commentator jar from Github. Commentator is tested under Java 17 (LTS).

You can also build Commentator yourself. You will need to do that:

  • Leiningen, the Clojure build tool.
  • Java 11.

Then, clone the Git repository. You can now build the project with lein uberjar.

The resulting jar will be in target/uberjar/commentator-<version>-standalone.jar

Launch Commentator

Commentator needs a configuration file. You need to set the environment variable COMMENTATOR_CONFIGURATION to the path of this file.

Using Docker

The Docker image is available on the Docker Hub. You will need to mount the configuration file as a volume (or inject it into the running container somehow) in order to make it work.
