Pretty new to community so forgive me if I am sounding too naive. I’ve recently started exploring IPFS and the possibilities with IPFS. While I was doing my first PoC and I really missed Geocities. As a learning exercise I actually want to build a Geocities on IPFS, and I had couple of questions that I thought community might be able to help me with.
- I am going to host my IPFS daemon on a my local laptop (or a raspberry Pi), and build something running on Node.js and then calling my daemon API. This is going to be a limited storage machine, and I am suspecting if it really works I am going to be out of storage space. Will IPFS keep working and redistributing files as I adding more, and more to my node without pinning?
- I will use IPNS and figure out something to give everybody consistent URLs. I’ve noticed IPNS takes some time to publish entries. Imagine people updating their files, would it be a good idea to publish IPNS with every directory update? Or should I have a periodic job to do so?
I want to start simple and evolve it into something complex. Would love to share code on my github as I build it. Happy to listen to suggestions, and open to ideas as well. I know there might be ideas out there doing something similar already, but I might pivot it into something different like JS fiddle or JS bin if I get the basics right.
