Hello there! First time poster in here
I’m not sure where I read about IPFS deployment for the first time but I’m sure it was a tutorial whose first step was to run the
ipfs daemon. I’m now deploying a webapp to IPFS using the
ipfs add command but despite I sometimes forget to run the daemon first, the
add seems to work just fine.
I say seems because I’m not always able to access the file later – this could be just the propagation times. The thing is that it always work when I run the daemon first.
My question then is: is it necessary to run the daemon in order to add files to IPFS? And if not, how does the CLI talks to the network?
