Build Status Coverage Status npm Known Vulnerabilities

Library for solving the cross-platform binaries problem (works on Windows as well) containing helpers for easier read/write on IPFS by extending the JavaScript IPFS API functionality.

Some of the differences:

  • Able to specify init folder
  • Promised based, no callbacks
  • Connector can be accessed from anywhere inside the app as it is a singleton
  • Plug your favorite logging library (by default console). See tests folder

For more information please see the API docs

Installation

npm install @akashaproject/ipfs-connector --save

Usage

import { IpfsConnector } from '@akashaproject/ipfs-connector';

const instance = IpfsConnector.getInstance();

// start ipfs daemon and download binaries if needed
instance.start().then((api) => {});

// stop daemon
instance.stop()

// see api docs
// add/get data to ipfs
// cid zdpuB2CAUgUbyJ4s8SmqcGGaGfs7bG337dDNty8NSCR3fhgRw
const cid = instance.api.add({firstName: 'John', lastName: 'Doe'});
//returns John
instance.api.get(cid, '/firstName'); 

// read data from ipfs
instance.api.ipfsApi.cat('ipfs hash')

// access default ipfs-http-api from
instance.api.ipfsApi
