Central repository for work on libp2p
This repository is the central place for Rust development of the libp2p spec.
Main documentation can be found on https://docs.rs/libp2p.
The examples folder contains small binaries showcasing the many protocols in this repository.
To report bugs, suggest improvements or request new features please open a GitHub issue on this repository.
For rust-libp2p specific questions please use the GitHub Discussions forum https://github.com/libp2p/rust-libp2p/discussions.
For discussions and questions related to multiple libp2p implementations please use the libp2p Discourse forum https://discuss.libp2p.io.
For general project updates and discussions join the biweekly libp2p Community Calls.
The main components of this repository are structured as follows:
core/: The implementation of
StreamMuxerAPI on which almost all other crates depend.
transports/: Implementations of transport protocols (e.g. TCP) and protocol upgrades (e.g. for authenticated encryption, compression, ...) based on the
muxers/: Implementations of the
libp2p-core, e.g. (sub)stream multiplexing protocols on top of (typically TCP) connections. Multiplexing protocols are (mandatory)
swarm/: The implementation of
libp2p-corewith the central interfaces
ConnectionHandlerused to implement application protocols (see
protocols/: Implementations of application protocols based on the
misc/: Utility libraries.
examples/: Worked examples of built-in application protocols (see
protocols/) with common
