An abstract-blob-store compatible implementation built using IPFS as the storage backend

Implements the abstract-blob-store, using IPFS for storage.


npm install ipfs-blob-store


ipfs-blob-store today requires a running IPFS daemon to talk to over HTTP. This module will be able to be entirely self-contained once js-ipfs is complete.

ipfs-blob-store uses the IPFS Files API to create the abstraction of a mutable filesystem over snapshots of Merkle DAGs (per mutation). You'll need to use the Files API directly to get the /ipfs/Qm... address of the filesystem root so that other IPFS nodes can retrieve it.

var ipfsBlobStore = require('ipfs-blob-store')

var options = {
  port: 5001,   // default value
  host: '', // default value
  baseDir: '/', // default value
  flush: true  // default value

var store = ipfsBlobStore(options)

var ws = store.createWriteStream({
  key: 'some/path/file.txt'

ws.write('hello world\n')
ws.end(function() {
  var rs = store.createReadStream({
    key: 'some/path/file.txt'
