Swarm protocol integration on the Mist browser

  • Recognize bzz:// on the URL bar

  • Recognize bzz:// on elements inside the WebView

  • bzz addresses work as a different domains (for window.location, localStorage, etc.)

  • Load the Ethereum Wallet from Swarm

Swarm node manager

  • Download swarm binaries (resues clientBinaryManager.json's infrastructure)

  • Start/close the swarm process (managed by swarmNode.js)

This is a work in progress.

Some notes / TODOs:

  • Mandatory code duplication on the close function of swarmNode.js (it should have the same logic as ethereumNode.js's close). We could abstract that into a process spawner and avoid this duplication.

  • Still doesn't hide the Swarm account from the DApps

  • Doesn't check if Swarm is already running

  • Doesn't handle possible Swarm process crashes

  • Doesn't emit logs

Implement Swarm node manager
This implements the Swarm node manager, which is responsible for starting and
closing the Swarm process properly. I'm trying to follow as closely as possible
the style I found in other files, although I'm a little concerned with some
patterns such as the use of global state and singletons. Those must be debated
later. There are still some things to implement and test in order for this to
be considered done.
