}

PeerpadBackend(options)

Creates a Peerpad backend.

const backend = PeerpadBackend(options)

Starts the backend. Returns a promise that resolves once the backend has started.

async backend.stop()

Stops the backend.

Network: backend.network

backend.network.hasStarted()

Returns a boolean, true if the IPFS node has started.

backend.network.once('started', fn)

Emitted once the IPFS node starts. If you passed in an IPFS node that is already started (via options.ipfs), this event doesn't get emitted.
