re: Building an app with Stellar and IPFS VIEW POST


Super great. Would totally read more posts like this.

decentralized version of a forum like HackerNews or Reddit using the Stellar blockchain

dev.to is a forum like HackerNews or Reddit and thought experiments in this realm are really exciting.


Using blockchain for forum like application seem like overkill. On scuttlebutt, a forum is just an entry to the append only log with common tags.


I'm not too familiar with scuttlebutt but a lot of the apps I saw like Patchwork seem to be standalone apps that run outside of the browser. Does the platform support web apps?


@jesalg there's patchfoo where you can use normal browser to connect to the local port patchfoo is running. It's basically a simple webapp that connect to the ssb daemon and allow you to interact with ssb network through normal browser.
