I added some content - a directory via
ipfs add -r <path> and it worked:
... added Qmcwa4FAW74p3M5AsRLC41ifo5ytEouam7EL1Ad3MasNog output 8.26 MiB / 8.26 MiB [==============================================================================================================================] 100.00%
and took about 30min
then I tried to pin it on my dappnode (added it on my laptop which is not 100% online) and it was just hanging:
And as I do not get any progress there I tried:
ipfs pin add QmZvCJBNKdKMohHE5u18vNgK6pA3RS5CkWu82M7HWZ84pA --progress
even on the same machine where I did the successful
ipfs add to eliminate connection problems.
And it is stuck on
Fetched/Processed 0 nodes for days.
The problem is that one subdirectory contains a lot of (small) files (272745)
Is there anything I can do or is it just not possible with IPFS?
if you want to reproduce it - I was trying to pin the directory
output that is created in the build-step of GitHub - ethereum-lists/website: The source for the site lists.eth
But guess a simpler repo might be to just use GitHub - ethereum-lists/4bytes: List of 4byte identifiers for EVM smart contract functions directly as I am pretty sure this is the culprit (cannot test now as I am now on 3g and limited data)
