The future of PubSub


Do you happen to know whether or not the PubSub feature which is experimental right now will be a permanent part of IPFS to invest time in using it? Thanks.

The algorithm behind pubsub (gossipsub) is not experimental, it’s used in filecoin and works well.

What is experimental is Kubo’s HTTP API (we don’t like it and want to change it), if you write a pubsub app IMO you should make your own go daemon that spinup a libp2p node and do whatever gossipsub you want to do using the gossipsub lib.

You can find more info here pubsub package - - Go Packages
