Tutorial: The Myriad ways to Access and Distribute IPFS Content
These Lessons are tested with go-ipfs version 0.5.0. Please update this file on github to reflect any other versions that have been tested.
IPFS hashes are permanent, content-addressed identifiers for your content. This means that you can use many different ways to access, replicate, and/or redistribute the same content using the same link/identifier. The lessons in this tutorial explore many of the ways that you can do this. If you want to learn about why it is valuable to have all of these options, read the lesson on the power of content-addressing
All of the lessons use the same content: a snapshot of the Turkish version of Wikipedia.
These Lessons will teach you how to
- Define content addressing and compare it with location-addressing
- Use IPFS content hashes to access the same content in many ways with the same link
- Access content through the public IPFS gateways at ipfs.io
- Access content through any IPFS node's http gateway
- Access content using the IPFS browser extension
- Access IPFS content through Tor
- Use a sneakernet to move and redistribute IPFS content
- Explain the implications of being able to access IPFS content through so many different paths
