SyncNet is a decentralized browser built on top of BitTorrent Sync and (soon) Colored Coins.

You can find more detail on my website.

SyncNet is experimental, no security auditing has been done. Only use it if you know what you are doing.


  • enaml - enaml is used as the UI framework

    • You can find installation instructions here. If you have a working C++ compilier it is as simple as pip install enaml, if not you will have to install the various requirements from their project pages. Qt is the recommended backend. OS X users can install PyQt4 with homebrew. Windows users can find binaries on the pyqt project page. Linux users know how to install things.
  • atom - atom is used as the eventing framework

    • This is a dependency of enaml, so if you successfully installed enaml you should be good to go.
  • python-btsync - a lightweight wrapper around the BTSync API

    • python-btsync is a light weight wrapper I wrote around the btsync API. To use it you will have to apply for and receive an API key from BitTorrent. Once you have that key you will need to enter it into the config.json file and point btsync to that file when starting up. You can find more details on the linked github project page.

Future Work

  • Build a DNS system using colored coins.
  • Selectivly sync only the content requested.
  • Convert any regular HTTP site into a syncnet site.
