A distributed, peer-to-peer chat application built on IPFS.
NOTE! Orbit is still more or less experimental. It means Orbit is currently not secure, APIs will change and clients can break over time. If you come across problems, it would help greatly to open issues so that we can fix them as quickly as possible.
Orbit chat application for the browsers.
A desktop version of the Orbit chat application that can be run as a stand-alone app in OSX and Linux. We're currently working on Windows support.
A prototype of a terminal client.
Orbit is intended to be embeddable in applications.
A serverless, p2p database built on IPFS. Orbit uses
orbit-db to have a database for each channel in the chat network.
A new peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol. Orbit uses IPFS as its data storage and libp2p to handle all the p2p networking.
