package core implements the IpfsNode object and methods for constructing and properly setting it up.

	MinPeerThreshold:  4,
	Period:            30 * time.Second,
	ConnectionTimeout: (30 * time.Second) / 3,

DefaultBootstrapConfig specifies default sane parameters for bootstrapping.

ErrNotEnoughBootstrapPeers signals that we do not have enough bootstrap peers to bootstrap correctly.


func Bootstrap

func Bootstrap(n *IpfsNode, cfg BootstrapConfig) (io.Closer, error)

Bootstrap kicks off IpfsNode bootstrapping. This function will periodically check the number of open connections and -- if there are too few -- initiate connections to well-known bootstrap peers. It also kicks off subsystem bootstrapping (i.e. routing).


type BootstrapConfig

type BootstrapConfig struct {

	// MinPeerThreshold governs whether to bootstrap more connections. If the
	// node has less open connections than this number, it will open connections
	// to the bootstrap nodes. From there, the routing system should be able
	// to use the connections to the bootstrap nodes to connect to even more
	// peers. Routing systems like the IpfsDHT do so in their own Bootstrap
	// process, which issues random queries to find more peers.
	MinPeerThreshold int

	// Period governs the periodic interval at which the node will
	// attempt to bootstrap. The bootstrap process is not very expensive, so
	// this threshold can afford to be small (<=30s).
	Period time.Duration

	// ConnectionTimeout determines how long to wait for a bootstrap
	// connection attempt before cancelling it.
	ConnectionTimeout time.Duration

	// BootstrapPeers is a function that returns a set of bootstrap peers
	// for the bootstrap process to use. This makes it possible for clients
	// to control the peers the process uses at any moment.
	BootstrapPeers func() []peer.PeerInfo

BootstrapConfig specifies parameters used in an IpfsNode's network bootstrapping process.

func BootstrapConfigWithPeers

func BootstrapConfigWithPeers(pis []peer.PeerInfo) BootstrapConfig

type ConfigOption

type ConfigOption func(ctx context.Context) (*IpfsNode, error)

func Offline

func Offline(r repo.Repo) ConfigOption

func Online

func Online(r repo.Repo) ConfigOption

func OnlineWithOptions

func OnlineWithOptions(r repo.Repo, router RoutingOption, ho HostOption) ConfigOption

func Standard

func Standard(r repo.Repo, online bool) ConfigOption

DEPRECATED: use Online, Offline functions

type HostOption

type HostOption func(ctx context.Context, id peer.ID, ps peer.Peerstore) (p2phost.Host, error)
var DefaultHostOption HostOption = constructPeerHost

type IpfsNode

type IpfsNode struct {

	// Self
	Identity peer.ID // the local node's identity

	Repo repo.Repo

	// Local node
	Pinning    pin.Pinner // the pinning manager
	Mounts     Mounts     // current mount state, if any.
	PrivateKey ic.PrivKey // the local node's private Key

	// Services
	Peerstore  peer.Peerstore       // storage for other Peer instances
	Blockstore bstore.Blockstore    // the block store (lower level)
	Blocks     *bserv.BlockService  // the block service, get/add blocks.
	DAG        merkledag.DAGService // the merkle dag service, get/add objects.
	Resolver   *path.Resolver       // the path resolution system

	// Online
	PeerHost     p2phost.Host        // the network host (server+client)

	Routing      routing.IpfsRouting // the routing system. recommend ipfs-dht
	Exchange     exchange.Interface  // the block exchange + strategy (bitswap)
	Namesys      namesys.NameSystem  // the name system, resolves paths to hashes

IpfsNode is IPFS Core module. It represents an IPFS instance.

func NewIPFSNode

func NewIPFSNode(parent context.Context, option ConfigOption) (*IpfsNode, error)

func NewMockNode

func NewMockNode() (*IpfsNode, error)

NewMockNode constructs an IpfsNode for use in tests.

func (*IpfsNode) Bootstrap

func (n *IpfsNode) Bootstrap(cfg BootstrapConfig) error

func (*IpfsNode) LoadPrivateKey

func (n *IpfsNode) LoadPrivateKey() error

func (*IpfsNode) OnlineMode

func (n *IpfsNode) OnlineMode() bool

func (*IpfsNode) Resolve

func (n *IpfsNode) Resolve(fpath string) (*merkledag.Node, error)

func (*IpfsNode) SetupOfflineRouting

func (n *IpfsNode) SetupOfflineRouting() error

SetupOfflineRouting loads the local nodes private key and uses it to instantiate a routing system in offline mode. This is primarily used for offline ipns modifications.

type Mounts

type Mounts struct {
	Ipfs mount.Mount
	Ipns mount.Mount

Mounts defines what the node's mount state is. This should perhaps be moved to the daemon or mount. It's here because it needs to be accessible across daemon requests.

type NodeBuilder

type NodeBuilder struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

NodeBuilder is an object used to generate an IpfsNode

func NewNodeBuilder

func NewNodeBuilder() *NodeBuilder

func (*NodeBuilder) Build

func (nb *NodeBuilder) Build(ctx context.Context) (*IpfsNode, error)

func (*NodeBuilder) Offline

func (nb *NodeBuilder) Offline() *NodeBuilder

func (*NodeBuilder) Online

func (nb *NodeBuilder) Online() *NodeBuilder

func (*NodeBuilder) SetHost

func (nb *NodeBuilder) SetHost(ho HostOption) *NodeBuilder

func (*NodeBuilder) SetRepo

func (nb *NodeBuilder) SetRepo(r repo.Repo) *NodeBuilder

func (*NodeBuilder) SetRouting

func (nb *NodeBuilder) SetRouting(ro RoutingOption) *NodeBuilder
