State of disqus to discourse importer


(Quintin Par) #1

I am trying to migrate my comments from disqus to discourse and came across these comments


I couldn’t find the importer at
https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/lib/tasks/disqus.thor
Those posts were in 2014 and the last topic on this is 2016 if I am not wrong

Is the importer still active?

Looks like the Disqus importer moved in with the other importers:

Thanks @awole20.

Does this mean, the commands to run this has changed?

You would run it like

ruby script/import_scripts/discus.rb

Glancing at it, it doesn’t support uploads, avatars, or 301 redirects. It puts everything in a single category (perhaps that’s how Discus works).

Hi @pfaffman,

I was unable to get to the script folder. What am I doing wrong here?


(Jay Pfaffman) #6

You need to install a development environment.

Is this how I should setup the dev environment?


I am a bit surprised here because comments like this

and

don’t mention setting up env.
