The lightning aura component comment syntax common to HTML <!-- comment --> generates a comment also in the generated HTML.

There is a way to insert comments in the source code of the .cmp file of the lightning aura component that does not generate a corresponding comment in the generated HTML?

I am not aware of an "official" way to do this but one quick way to accomplish this would be to wrap your comment in an aura:if tag:

<aura:if isTrue="false">Insert comment here</aura:if>

This is pretty hacky but you could easily create a component called "comment" that accomplishes the same thing and would look better like this:

<c:comment>Insert comment here</c:comment>

    +1 just because it works... in theory. Practically, there is no way that it is advisable to insert nop code just to insert comments. :(
