Login & Register
Before using Fission services, you need to login.
register prompt you for user credentials and store them in
If you ever need to log into a different account, just delete

This is the only command you need to get your content hosted on the decentralized web!
up, make sure that you:
- have an IPFS daemon running in the background (through ipfs-desktop, or in another terminal)
- are currently in the directory containing the assets you want to deploy
A few things happen when you run
- the directory is recursively added to IPFS through your local node (the equivalent of running
ipfs add -r ./)
- Your local node connects to a remote Fission node (the equivalent of running
ipfs swarm connect [peerId])
- A Pin Request is sent to our server which tells the remote Fission node to get and store the requested content directly from your local node
- a request is sent to our server to update the Domain associated with you account to point to the new content using dnslink ℹ
- This points
[username].demo.runfission.comat our IPFS gateway (ipfs.runfission.com)
_dnslink.[username].demo.runfission.comat your uploaded content
- Note: It may take some time for DNS to propagate. So give it a minute or two if it doesn't load immediately.
- This points

If you're currently developing your website and want continuous updates to the hosted version, use
watch instead of
This command does the same thing as
up but after uploading your content, it continues watching the current directory for changes. Every time you change a file, it adds the new content to IPFS, pins it to the remote Fission node, and updates DNS.
