I'm disappointed that I don't find result for "La vita e bella" but I do find results for "La vita è bella".Reply
The headline doesn't make much sense. There's still a database, what changes is simply where it's stored when in use. "Torrent Website w/o DB Server" might work better.
That aside, would this method scale? 135,000 torrents doesn't seem comprehensive, so I would expect real world use to have many more. Maybe a different SQLite db for different categories?Reply
Since it has used IPFS, why not host the content of those torrents with IPFS?Reply
How do immutable systems like IPFS manage the problem of updates to a blog?Reply
Makes me wonder if you could host a pouchdb in ipfsReply
I love the internet.Reply
I'm curious about why didn't they compress the SQLite file using gzip. Even in level 1, for superfast compression/decompression halved the file size.Reply
Reading just the title, I was expecting storing/serving magnet files on DNS, as someone did a few years back if I remember correctly (just as a joke/poc, not as a serious solution).
I'm pretty sure it was posted on hw, but I can't find the link anymore.Reply
I wonder why the author ignored the option of compression in the post. Even with a simple gzip DEFLATE compression, those 10MB of plain text could get as small as a 1MB archive and possibly more, meaning that in a compressed 10MB payload you could fit much much more than 135K records.Reply
One unmentioned con: no updates, no new torrents can be added (or, updates require re-deployment of full new .sqlite db, together with a new website). I think there's a space for decentralized database format. Something that would have immutable rows (not the whole db), ranges and search, indexes, etc. Maybe there's something like this already?Reply
love these kind of things. I am interested in distribution methods for smarter clients without needing a dedicated server to host from.Reply
IPFS requires "pinning" content for it to exist, meaning you host it, whoever pins content becomes liable for its distribution, if no one pins it, it disappears. That's why you can't freely host things like child porn on IPFS.Reply
That's not going to stop takedowns, they don't care about if it's technically on your site or not.Reply
Could someone more savvy clarify....
On that page I do inspect, got console and do:
loadDBAndExec('SELECT * FROM my_table LIMIT 10;')
Uncaught ReferenceError: loadDBAndExec is not defined
Why doesn't this work?Reply
