IPFS
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Name: ipfs
Description: IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem. It combines good ideas from Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the Web. It is like a single bittorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built in. You can also mount the world at /ipfs.

What's the usecase for this under Solus?

@JoshStrobl If wanted a user could install ipfs and let the daemon start at boot via a systemd script, afterwards a localhost json api is exposed so client software can directly transfer files from/to IPFS.
A direct use case would be that you could run https://d.tube which is a dececntraliced/blockchain video portal based on https://steemit.com that hosts its video files directly in ipfs, and the web UI makes it possible to use a local ipfs node instead of going through the http gateway and thus theoretically reduce latency.
