Rust IPFS API Client

Crates.io Docs.rs

A client library for the IPFS API.

This library allows you to use the local IPFS daemon from Rust.

Usage

[dependencies]
ipfsapi = "0.2"

Examples

Reading a file from IPFS

Here's an example that gets the contents of a file from IPFS and displays it.

let api = IpfsApi::new("127.0.0.1", 5001);

let bytes = api.cat("QmWATWQ7fVPP2EFGu71UkfnqhYXDYH566qy47CnJDgvs8u").unwrap();
let data = String::from_utf8(bytes.collect()).unwrap();

println!("{}", data);

The code gets the content of the IPFS hash and displays "Hello World".

Subsribing to messages on IPFS Pubsub

let api = IpfsApi::new("127.0.0.1", 5001);

let messages = api.pubsub_subscribe("chat").unwrap();

for message in messages {
    println!("{:?}", message);
}
