Working with content
In this chapter, we demonstrate features of Swarm related to storage and retrieval. First we discuss how to solve mutability of resources in a content addressed system using the Ethereum Name Service on the blockchain, then using Mutable Resource Updates in Swarm. Then we briefly discuss how to protect your data by restricting access using encryption. We also discuss in detail how files can be organised into collections using manifests and how this allows virtual hosting of websites. Another form of interaction with Swarm, namely mounting a Swarm manifest as a local directory using FUSE. We conclude by summarizing the various URL schemes that provide simple http endpoints for clients to interact with Swarm.
