I’m not sure if this is supposed to work since it doesn’t seem to be documented anywhere else, but I followed the instructions outlined in the video of the IPFS All Hands from September 18 to try to install the IPFS git plugin, and it doesn’t seem to work. Here are the exact steps I tried:
- Follow the instructions in the README to build from source: https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs#build-from-source
ipfs init; mkdir ~/.ipfs/plugins; cp plugin/plugins/git.so ~/.ipfs/plugins
- Navigate to a folder with a git repository,
git push ipld:: master
The result is
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'ipld'. Any advice on how to get this working?
