A simple app that issues IPFS shell commands to keep the local node connected to a list of other IPFS nodes.
IPFS has a poor habit of dropping connections to peers as part of its normal

for each peer listed in the
This app is intended for personal use, but other people are free to fork and use it if they find it useful.
git clone https://github.com/christroutner/ipfs-stay-connected
ipfs daemon &
peers.js file and add your own IPFS peers.
