@Discordian Wow I did not know about Tauri, very cool project.
Seams like your native-ipfs-bluiding-blox might be the best way to build web apps on IPFS for now.
We’ll have full IPFS api in a browser, one day I hope!
Great stuff in here!
Curious if you have any learnings from the IPNS profiles and how the performance of IPNS is with this setup?
Very cool to see how much it has evolved. I really like to play with this app back where it was still a website. Glad Tauri (and Rust) can help there
If you’re interested in a demo of the app, check out the episode of This Month in IPFS, in which @Discordian gives a demo of Disco Chat: This Month in IPFS - Jan 2023 - YouTube
IPNS itself doesn’t feel slow here if you’re chatting with a user who’s online, as you know where the record is, and it’s available. What is slow is doing lookups when no node is providing the record, you must wait for a timeout. Generally this doesn’t matter for live chatting though, and more for loading backlog.
