  • UnCloud project: WebRTC chat, file transfer, and remote observation
    2 projects | /r/WebRTC | 18 Dec 2022
    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. 😕
  • WebRTC for p2p voice calling app?

    You can use Trystero ( to cut server costs to zero. That’s what I used to build, which supports P2P audio and video calls.

    WebTorrent is obviously well suited for p2p file distribution, but using a minimal subset of the protocol also provides a nice hack for easily bootstrapping peer connections between web app users. Piggybacking on public mediums already designed to do peer exchange can let you rapidly prototype a WebRTC project without the hassle of running your own server anywhere.

    I built a library that explores this idea:

  • Taking the Power Back with Web Meshes
    3 projects | | 26 Nov 2022
    First, I need to give credit to Dan Motzenbecker and his incredible work with the Trystero JavaScript library. Trystero serves as the direct inspiration for the web mesh concept. Trystero is one of the most powerful and fascinating libraries I've ever found and I don't understand how it doesn't have many thousands of stars on GitHub. Please give Trystero a look and consider how you might use it in your own projects.
  • I built a decentralized, serverless, peer-to-peer private chat app that's open source, ephemeral, and runs entirely in the browser

    BitTorrent - source code literally hardcodes 5 tracker URLs ...

    Chitchatter uses a WebSocket connection to a WebTorrent server to initiate peer connections via Trystero. Once peer connections are established, the WebTorrent connection is only used to find more peers.

    Nope, Trystro and WebTorrent!

    That's all handled by Trystero and WebTorrent:

    Yep you've got a good understanding of the basic architecture! Chitchatter uses Trystero to connect to public WebTorrent servers to find peers. Trystero optionally hashes SDP strings (which peers use to locate each other) with a password. Assuming each peer has matching passwords, the SDP string is decrypted by other peers so that everyone can connect.
  • Chitchatter: A peer-to-peer chat app that is encrypted, serverless, decentralized, and ephemeral
    2 projects | /r/privacy | 7 Oct 2022
    This is my first time hearing of these technologies. It seems that they're custom protocols to be implemented in client apps? Chitchatter is different because it's entirely client-side web-based and doesn't use any special protocols. Instead, it uses to connect peers via WebTorrent (a web-compatible version of BitTorrent). Peers then send messages directly via WebRTC.
