  • ZeroNet

    ZeroNet - Decentralized websites using Bitcoin crypto and BitTorrent network

    Project mention: Professor of law, Bruce Pardy on Trudeau's upcoming internet censorship in 2023. | | 2023-01-11

    Nothing can be censored here. Nothing. read that again. Nothing can be censored because it is 100% decentralized, that is the opposite of centralized power.

  • gun

  • yjs

    Project mention: Show HN: Nostr-CRDT – real-time collaborative apps over Nostr | | 2023-02-08

    Hi HN!

    Nostr-CRDT is an experimental project that connects Yjs [1] (a proven, high performance CRDT) with Nostr [2].

    I wanted to learn about the Nostr protocol and see if it'd be possible to send updates to state (e.g.: edits of a rich text document, updates to a todo list) over Nostr.

    Nostr describes itself as "The simplest open protocol that is able to create a censorship-resistant global "social" network once and for all.".

    I like the idea of a decentralized social network, but what if we can decentralize more kinds of apps and create decentralized, local-first collaborative applications? I've been exploring this area for a while and earlier shared a Show HN post that does this over Matrix [3].

    There's still lots to figure out, but imo it's a very exciting and rapidly developing space - looking fwd to your thoughts already!




    PS: for an instant demo you can open this link and click the green button to load the doc and connect over Nostr (using a new anonymous account):

  • orbit-db

    Peer-to-Peer Databases for the Decentralized Web

    Project mention: orbit-db VS db3 - a user suggested alternative | | 2023-01-15
  • ipfs

    IPFS implementation in JavaScript

    Project mention: How to store your app's entire state in the url | | 2023-01-09

    Store the content in ipfs and just put the hash in the URL? I haven't used in this capacity but I'm under the impression that that's what it's supposed to do.

  • beaker

    An experimental peer-to-peer Web browser

    Project mention: Ask HN: Those making $0/month or less on side projects – Show and tell | | 2023-01-27

    it sounds a lot like you're reinventing what Beaker Browser had built on top of DAT, except that it could do more. For example, they made a distributed Twitter clone as a proof of concept, but folks actually started using it. Definitely included blogging stuff.

    Really cool stuff around taking sites and things other folks had built and using them as a basis for your new thing.

  • Sandstorm

    Sandstorm is a self-hostable web productivity suite. It's implemented as a security-hardened web app package manager.

  • embark-framework

  • mirotalk

    🚀 WebRTC - P2P - Simple, Secure, Fast Real-Time Video Conferences Up to 4k and 60fps, compatible with all browsers and platforms.

    Project mention: Free Secure WebRTC P2P/SFU/C2C Video Calls, Screen Sharing, File Sharing, Chat and more. | | 2023-02-02

    I started the MiroTalk P2P & MiroTalk SFU projects during the pandemic period (about 1+ year ago), not knowing anything about the WebRTC. Making often the video conferences with my colleagues and not wanting to depend on Zoom, Teams, Google Meet... I decided to do some research about how it works and from there MiroTalk was born :) I Giving to everyone the chance to have its own instance of MiroTalk, which can be customized as you like and run in any cloud, vps, server. If you're just starting out, I suggest you take a look at the MiroTalk C2C (New) code, which can be a good starting point to understand how the architecture WebRTC Mesh (P2P) works. Later you can also study how the WebRTC SFU (Selective Forwarding Units - I recommend mediasoup which I personally love) or MCU (Multipoint Control Unit) architecture works. I wish you all the best!

  • trystero

    Project mention: UnCloud project: WebRTC chat, file transfer, and remote observation | | 2022-12-18

    Yes, this is a major issue that I haven't found a real solution for. There seems to be a mixture of iOS Safari bugs and intentional design limitations at play, and I don't know if a fully P2P web app like Chitchatter is practical on that platform. There's an open issue to improve this in Trystero (the networking library that Chitchatter uses), but there may be a limit to how stable iOS will be with WebRTC apps. 😕
