Shared editing demo using IPFS and CRDT
This codebase was developed to demostrate how to use IPFS in conjuction with Y.js, a CRDT library.
- Have Node.js version 6 or greater installed
> git clone https://github.com/ipfs-labs/shared-editing-demo.git > cd shared-editing-demo > npm install
> npm run build
> npm start
Open in browser
Using a modern browser that supports WebRTC, like a recent version of Chrome or Firefox, open several windows of http://localhost:12345.
This Demo uses WebRTC to establish the connections between nodes. WebRTC is a CPU intensive protocol and not all Browsers will behave correctly, depending on their implementation of WebRTC or the resources available on the machine that they are running. This is a known issue and something the js-ipfs team is looking at alternatives to solve.
