Take this idea one step further, and you have IPFS, which is a very promising approach:


I tried to setup ipfs on El Capitan yesterday. I stalked the OS X Homebrew FUSE package, mounted ipfs and it immediately fails complaining too many file descriptors are being used.

ipfs is awesome, but I want to first be able to mount it as the file system :-)

I haven't tried using IPFS, but the default ulimit setting on OS X is tragically low. You might want to try bumping it up.

I tried - increased it to unlimited and it still had the same error :-(

I have zero knowledge of Go, so not even sure how to start troubleshooting.

IPFS is certainly not this idea taken one step further. It is a totally different thing.

If we're talking about linking names to resources, ipfs/ipns is not a different thing https://github.com/ipfs/examples/tree/master/examples/ipns
