IPTB

iptb is a program used to create and manage a cluster of sandboxed nodes locally on your computer. Spin up 1000s of nodes! Using iptb makes testing libp2p networks easy!

For working with IPFS please see ipfs/iptb-plugins.

Example (ipfs)

$ iptb auto -type <plugin> -count 5
<output removed>

$ iptb start

$ iptb shell 0
$ echo $IPFS_PATH
/home/iptb/testbed/testbeds/default/0

$ echo 'hey!' | ipfs add -q
QmNqugRcYjwh9pEQUK7MLuxvLjxDNZL1DH8PJJgWtQXxuF

$ exit

$ iptb connect 0 4

$ iptb shell 4
$ ipfs cat QmNqugRcYjwh9pEQUK7MLuxvLjxDNZL1DH8PJJgWtQXxuF
hey!

Plugins

Plugins are now used to implement support for managing nodes. Plugins are stored under $IPTB_ROOT/plugins (see configuration)
