Keep meaning to tinker with Beaker, but it keeps falling in my to-do list because current-web stuff pays my bills. On the other hand, Beaker looks like that Netscape Gold read/write view source web that I really loved. My career has been a lucky thing that I happen to get paid working with things I really love.
Beaker uses a peer-to-peer filesystem on the Hypercore Protocol. Users connect directly to your computer to access your files.
Hypercore is a distributed append-only log
Hypercore comes with a secure transport protocol, making it easy to build fast and scalable peer-to-peer applications. Think lightweight blockchain crossed with BitTorrent.
Hypercore currently serves as the foundation for a diverse range of P2P applications, including chat apps, filesystems, databases, and even a browser for the distributed internet. And the whole thing's MIT-licensed, so you can use it as you like!
