ipfs-web-app tool

standard-readme compliant

ipfs web app interface

IPFS web apps are html5 web pages with IPFS API access.


In /examples/home, you will find the node info simple example app. To test this, you will need an ipfs daemon running in unrestricted mode.

$ ipfs daemon --unrestricted-api

IPFS Web apps also depend on browserify, and this example also needs less to compile its stylesheets.

$ sudo npm install -g less browserify ipfs-web-app
$ cd examples/home
$ npm install
$ ipfs-web-app run

This will open a browser with your node info showing.


For now, there is only one example here. You can access it through the browser.

More apps would be great! Feel free to add them here.


Feel free to join in. All welcome. Open an issue!
