"""
Desired structure based on my post URLS: /data/comments/2016-07-12-post-slug/comment-uniquehash.yml
Data in comment is structured like this:
_id: bc1e49d0-58fa-11e8-bebb-13146c4ef23d
_parent: 2016-07-12-post-slug
reply_to: ''
name: Ryan
email: 604a2592fdc946151a05706ed0d9978f
body: Hello World
date: '2018-05-16T11:17:35.978Z'
I would recommend commenting out the file system writes and to run this a few times to inspect the data. Then enable them to try a first real run.
Thanks to https://github.com/dancwilliams/wordpress_to_staticman_comments for a starting point.
If you hit errors, make sure you have newlines and that there is no bad data like semi colons or single quotes in your comments that aren't escaped or surrounded by single quotes.
