Сreate-ipfs-app - deploy to [web3.storage, moralis.io, pinata.cloud] by running one command

Create IPFS apps with no build configuration (like create-react-app).

How it works? - https://vimeo.com/737320276

Create IPFS App works on macOS, Windows, and Linux.

If something doesn’t work, please file an issue.

If you have questions or need help, please ask in GitHub Discussions.

Quick Overview

To create a new IPFS app, you may choose one of the following methods:


npx create-ipfs-app my-ipfs-app --web3 WEB3_STORAGE_API_TOKEN


yarn create ipfs-app my-ipfs-app --moralis MORALIS_WEB3_API_KEY


npm install -g create-ipfs-app
create-ipfs-app my-ipfs-app --pinata PINATA_API_KEY:PINATA_API_SECRET

Once the installation is done, you can open your project folder:

cd my-ipfs-app

Inside the newly created project, you can run some built-in commands:

npm start or yarn start

Runs the app in development mode.

Open http://localhost:3000 to view it in the browser.

npm test or yarn test

Runs the test watcher in an interactive mode.

By default, runs tests related to files changed since the last commit.

npm run build or yarn build

Builds the app for production to the build folder.

Your app is ready to be deployed.

npm run deploy:service or yarn deploy:service

In a few seconds, your application will be deployed on the decentralized network.

  • Open ipfs://Q.../index.html to view it in the Brave browser.
  • Open https://dweb.link/ipfs/Q.../index.html to view it in the ALL browsers.

If you see a white screen instead of a website:

  • Add to package.json "homepage": ".";
  • Build the project;
  • Deploy it again.

Many plans for improvement :smirk:, make the script without being tied to the framework (react, vue, svelte, …), add more interactive interaction with web3 to the main page (web3.js, ethers.js, …), add more ipfs services, …

Thanks for the feedback :innocent:
