This tool is the implementation of IPFS in NodeJS / Express. Through a series of POST and GET calls it is possible to interact directly via browser with IPFS. All these calls are present within IdaNode, so let's refer to these for a more detailed analysis.
Clone the repository and install all dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/scryptachain/scrypta-ipfscd scrypta-ipfsnpm install
Now you can start the tool with the following command:
if everything has been installed correctly, you will see something like this on your console:
Now you can use all the endpoints already described on IdaNode simply by pointing your localhost to port 3000.
For example, using curl you can actually see the IPFS version installed:
curl http://localhost:3000/info> 0.39.0
