I am new to IPFS and trying to learn. What is the meaning of recursive in terms of IPFS.
From context I’m assuming you are talking about pins:
There are 2(+2) basic types of pins:
- Direct - Objects pinned directly
- Recursive - Roots of recursive pins (like direct, but also pin the children of the object)
- Indirect - Objects referenced by recursive pins
- Internal - internal, most of the time you don’t see those
