There is an alternative stack that works pretty much as you describe, its browser being Beaker: https://beakerbrowser.com/docs/tour/

There is an option in there to seed visited content as well as to host your own stuff.

Yeah I was so confused why the author didn't just use dat it's so easy

He also tried dat.


Hasnt written about it again though.

I'd like to read a comparison between the two hosting experiences; I'm not sure that eg. the linking-to-other-content part would be easier in dat-world, unless they run a pinning/re-hosting/gateway service tied to their current domain (which is doable, either standalone, or via Hashbase).
