Welcome to /ipfs/, a board dedicated to the discussion of the InterPlanetary File System.

What is it?

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and network designed to create a content-addressable, peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system. Basically, IPFS aims to create a network that functions like a big BitTorrent swarm, where you add and retrieve files in the network based on their hash. Peers in the network serve you the file using IPFS's own Bitswap P2P protocol. Every node (peer) in the network has the ability to 'pin' or locally save content from other users.

Why have a board?

Over the years, different types of network layers, routing schemes, and protocols have attempted to offer alternatives to the current web. IPFS is no different. Hopefully this board can be used so that anons interested in the state of the web can make a difference; whether it be through contributing to IPFS directly, hosting content on the network, creating software over IPFS, sharing ideas, or talking about alternatives.

Rules and Stuff

0. Follow 8chan global rules

1. Discussion about other networks and protocols is welcome (e.g. ZeroNet, I2P)

I understand that it hasn't been implemented yet, but is it definitely possible to have IPFS work over I2P?

Could it work seemlessly with the clearnet (for example: I2P user ←> Clearnet user) or would they have to be two distinct modes?

It has been implemented, read the fucking manual, relevant commentary, archives, etc., etc….

RTFM is not appropriate. If there's a manual for this it's not easy to find. In the IPFS forum it's not clear what the status is or if this can done of I@P and IPFS combined..

Post your finds from the network

Posts should include the hash, as well a short description of what it is

I should mention that the book also contains sound clips for all the lessons, in case anyone gets noided by the 1GB file size.

Works well as a decentralized hash list.

As we all know, we need IPFS file index sites like what bittorrent has. Eventually I might make a python GUI/CLI program for creating torrents and IPFS hashes (don't expect anything soon). I need a desktop GUI wrapper for people to submit content to the decentralized index I designed.

It uses bitmessage as a submission method and IPFS for database syncing. The content is completely separated from any frontend. Anyone can spin up or shut down frontends locally or publicly hosted on a VPS. The only thing that has to stay up is the admin's bitmessage monitoring/publishing program. Since new submissions and the database doesn't depend on IP addresses, and bitmessage messages stay in the network for days, it can be hosted from any computer and can hop from computer to computer with very little impact on the system. One of the goals is to function in an IP address independent way.

For the database I initially thought of using a blockchain to sync the data. Then I realized a few spammers could irreversibly (besides hard forking) bloat the chain to inconvenient sizes. Plus I couldn't deal with deleting real illegal stuff like cp which would be a big problem. Then I turned to IPNS. Each new submission through bitmessage would be a new self describing JSON object file. This has the advantage that all previously synced users would still be sharing all previous content even when the database changes. The admin can also delete JSON records and sync that with peers. For this, peers will have to run a sync script that periodically (every 5 or 10 minutes) checks for an updated address from IPNS. The script would use `ipfs ls` to compare the previous sync's content to the current content using diff and would download/pin/remove/delete files accordingly. This creates a distributed one-way sync using IPFS. The coolest part though is that the program would also convert and insert or delete the synced JSON records into SQLlite (or any other SQL DB) so it can be easily used from any program, like a web frontend. Of course everything would be modular to support multiple databases and frontends.

So there are three components to the system. First, the desktop GUI/CLI that uses bitmessage and IPFS (they would be started as daemons and accessed through their APIs) that allowsPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Any updates?

Bumping this, also interested in any updates

>Frontends could even combine multiple SQLite databases to combine content from multiple indexes.

These would function as repos, correct?

just fork qbittorrent and add a new button to import and download ipfs hash

then I can have my torrents and ipfs in the same client

not sure if people actually check this place anymore, but i've made a channel on telegram specifically for the discussion of IPFS


i might make a group chat to go along with the channel as well

Ipfsmin, is there an IRC channel where we can congregate and chat on a more informal basis?

e82b3a  No.16


Hey, that's a pretty good idea. I've made a channel on Rizon: #/ipfs/

I'll add it to the board header and sticky so people can find it. If anyone has any suggestions for changes to the channel feel free to post them here or on the channel itself.
