It's a definitive YES in this answer: github.com/disqus/DISQUS-API-Recipes/issues/6

+1 x 2 for the 2 comments @Michael - I will try to get on the chat a little later if that's OK an you are available. Thanks for all your time and input so far - I'll look at the second to last comment you made with that code snippet to try to get some clues (and to minimise your time if I need further info.) Thanks again. Also, accepting your answer as this looks do-able in theory.

(2 of 2) I can't can't see how this API wrapper protects my code against changes to the API that disqus make because, for example ,extra params introduced still need to be passed to the wrapper from my code which I would need to extend to support. Not necessarily an issue if a small change but I am exposed to that risk nonetheless as I cannot predict what API changes would be made (they could be large who knows).

(1 of 2) Yes I am aware of the API wrapper and want to understand what you mean by "three lines" - can you point directly to what you mean? As said, I will still need (and am happy to) write code to use the wrapper API to present the comment data to the search engine that I am using within my site.

I use PHP and can see that there is considerable support for this language as indicated in the example I gave in my earlier comment that accesses sub-comments of a thread. The bespoke code I talked of is the code that would extract and "present" the comment data to a search engine for it to "pick it up" when searches are performed. My concern was that if the API changes, then this code that relies upon it will need to be adjusted -this could be small or big - it's an unknown.

+1 @Michael yes I was aware of the API so thanks for corroborating that though I hadn't dug in deep enough into to get a definitive answer. Now, after a further look, can say that it looks more likely as there is an example here that accesses sub-comments of a thread - getting close to what I want. So it looks like if it is possible I'd need to write bespoke code (that's fine though significant effort but would aim to opensource it) but my concern is if API changes, that investment wasted.

Widened the question to include Linux and MacOS

Yes, it does: It's an Intel MacBookPro and I use MacOS AND Windows on it, via BootCamp. I have been evaluating which *AMP stacks to use - perhaps I should rewrite the question to include MAMP, LAMP and WAMP.

comment Looking for WAMP/LAMP/MAMP Benchmarking
My development machine is a Mac Book Pro with dual boot. MAMP on Mac OS X (mamp.info) performs reasonably well - much much faster than XAMPP on Windows natively (via BootCamp). MAMP therefore is good enough for me at the moment.

+1 ionFish: - for the PHPMyAdmin stats - what do you think the bottleneck is likely to be?

+1 Su': what you say makes sense: one should be attempting to replicate a host environment not only for compatibility reasons to run the code but also to benefit from the convenience of developing locally (speed and staging in-progress work).
