kandi X-RAY | go-ipfs Summary

go-ipfs is a Go library typically used in Storage applications. go-ipfs has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities and it has medium support. However go-ipfs has a Non-SPDX License. You can download it from GitHub.

IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem. It combines good ideas from previous systems such as Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the Web. It is like a single BitTorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built-in. You can also mount the world at /ipfs.

            Signals sent to the child process from a parent process is ignored inside a docker container
            Asked 2021-Nov-07 at 09:26

            I have a Python REST API server built with FastAPI. Upon response, it spawns a ffmpeg sub-process which is used to capture a video from an RTSP stream provided by an IP camera. Upon another request, the app stops recording the video by sending a SIGTERM signal to the ffmpeg process.

            This works just fine outside of Docker, but in a container, the SIGTERM is ignored by the ffmpeg process, thus the video never stops recording. I tried adding the --init option to my container but it didn't help although my app didn't have PID 1 anymore.

            My Dockerfile:

            While I was trying to figure this out, I created another topic on the Docker forum.

            We weren't able to make it work using signals, however I found a workaround. In my case with ffmpeg, instead of sending a SIGTERM / SIGINT signal to the process, I can send the "Q" key to the stdin. This has worked for me.

            This is a Go 1.16 issue which is currently investigated in golang/go issue 44529

            It includes Jay Conrod's comment:

            go mod tidy and go get may both hit the network to look up imported packages that aren't provided by any required module.
            If a module is replace locally, the go command will look there first, but I think it may still go out to the network for other prefixes of the module path.

            Instead, you can add a requirement on a non-existent version while replacing that version:

            how to get peers list using go-ipfs-api?
            Asked 2021-Feb-26 at 15:14

            I am a Newbie of ipfs and go, trying to get the ipfs information using go-ipfs-api. Following is my code:



            Answered 2021-Feb-26 at 15:14

            The context is a Golang context which helps track things like deadlines or cancellations of operations. In this case because you're making an HTTP call to your local IPFS daemon it's possible you might want to cancel the function because it's taking too long or your application no longer cares and the context lets you handle that use case.

            You can get a background context (i.e. lives forever and is never cancelled) via context.Background(). If you want to set a timeout on it you can pass that background context to context.WithTimeout. Checkout the Golang docs on context for more information.

            Yes, you can use go-ipfs as a library. There are some examples here https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/tree/90a573354af23e361da87a29f7bafc459967c070/docs/examples. Basically you need to import go-ipfs (and some of its subpackages) instead of go-ipfs-api.

            As Stebalien said in this Github issue, it's a go's expected behavior of Reader.

            Refer to the third paragraph of this documentation

            When Read encounters an error or end-of-file condition after successfully reading n > 0 bytes, it returns the number of bytes read. It may return the (non-nil) error from the same call or return the error (and n == 0) from a subsequent call. An instance of this general case is that a Reader returning a non-zero number of bytes at the end of the input stream may return either err == EOF or err == nil. The next Read should return 0, EOF.

            Install go-ipfs

            The canonical download instructions for IPFS are over at: https://docs.ipfs.io/guides/guides/install/. It is highly recommended you follow those instructions if you are not interested in working on IPFS development.
            You can also download go-ipfs from this project's GitHub releases page if you are unable to access dist.ipfs.io:.
            Click the blue "Download go-ipfs" on the right side of the page.
            Open/extract the archive.
            Move ipfs to your path (install.sh can do it for you).
            go-ipfs's build system requires Go and some standard POSIX build tools:. To build without GCC, build with CGO_ENABLED=0 (e.g., make build CGO_ENABLED=0). If you need to update: Download latest version of Go.
            GNU make
            GCC (or some other go compatible C Compiler) (optional)
            Install a compiler toolchain for the target platform.
            Set the CGO_ENABLED=1 environment variable.
            Separate instructions are available for building on Windows.
            git is required in order for go get to fetch all dependencies.
            Package managers often contain out-of-date golang packages. Ensure that go version reports at least 1.10. See above for how to install go.
            If you are interested in development, please install the development dependencies as well.
            WARNING: Older versions of OSX FUSE (for Mac OS X) can cause kernel panics when mounting!- We strongly recommend you use the latest version of OSX FUSE. (See https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/issues/177)
            Read docs/fuse.md for more details on setting up FUSE (so that you can mount the filesystem).
            Shell command completions can be generated with one of the ipfs commands completion subcommands. Read docs/command-completion.md to learn more.
            See the misc folder for how to connect IPFS to systemd or whatever init system your distro uses.


            If you have previously installed IPFS before and you are running into problems getting a newer version to work, try deleting (or backing up somewhere else) your IPFS config directory (~/.ipfs by default) and rerunning ipfs init. This will reinitialize the config file to its defaults and clear out the local datastore of any bad entries. Please direct general questions and help requests to our forum or our IRC channel (freenode #ipfs).
