I would like to embed Remarkbox on my blog posts, and show the number of comments on the parent index page. Is this supported?
Yes, we give you access to this data.
For example, the stats for my personal blog:
It could be pulled at build time. This might make sense if you build the Hugo site often enough, like daily, otherwise the counts will drift and appear stale.
I can alter the
stats.json schema to provide additional fields if needed in your implementation. I don't use Hugo myself so if you want to work on this I'll help for sure!
