A standalone deployment of a libp2p host, running in its own OS process and installing a set of virtual endpoints to enable co-local applications to: communicate with peers, handle protocols, interact with the DHT, participate in pubsub, etc. no matter the language they are developed in, nor whether a native libp2p implementation exists in that language.
The specs for the daemon are currently housed in the go implementation. You can read them at libp2p/go-libp2p-daemon
npm i -g libp2p-daemon
For a full list of options, you can run help
Running the defaults,
jsp2pd, will start the daemon and bind it to a local unix socket path.
Daemon clients will be able to communicate with the daemon over that unix socket.
This module is actively under development. Please check out the issues and submit PRs!
