I know this is a little old, it was posted almost two years ago, but I’m not completely new to IPFS and I’m just running across this for the first time so I thought I’d post it for anyone else who might have missed it.
This is exactly what I was looking for for something I was looking into a little while ago. The problem was, yes IPFS gives you strong assurances that the file you request hasn’t been tampered with but that goes out the window with a gateway involved and you have to trust the gateway but not with this.
Anyone know what the status of this is? Is it still being supported or worked on?
