The Charcoal team has developed a great tool called Blaze that does exactly this.

If you access https://charcoal-se.org/blaze/#site=money you'll see something like this:

Upon choosing "comments", you'll get the list of comments like this:

As you can see, it allows to auto refresh every certain seconds, so it is a great tool to monitor what is being said in a given site.

Note the timestamp is actually a link to the comment.

  • Perhaps you could mention that the timestamp is actually a link to the comment. This tripped me up twice. Each time, I forgot. – Flux Oct 30 at 11:43
  • @Flux sure, done. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Oct 30 at 11:44

There's no view that displays the most recent comments. However, this information is available through the API, via https://api.stackexchange.com/2.2/comments?order=desc&sort=creation&site=money, even without an app.

If you want a nice, graphical view of it, see fedorqui's answer.

For Meta Stack Overflow, the boson bot has been used to repost all comments to this chat room, which makes it easy to get a view of the most recent comments. I'm pretty sure it can easily be adapted to another site, if you want an archive and not a real-time view (an archive doesn't update on edits or deletions).
