As i keep diving into IPFS, new questions popup, so any help would be appreciated. Google wasn’t much of a help.
I need my app to be able to manage my own files in a GUI. I need it to be explorer-style showing the original filenames and directory structure.
- Is there a way to list my own shared files?
- Is my node keeping any info about the local file(name) that generated a shared object?
AFAIK i can do it using –nocopy which will use the original files for sharing and will copy nothing in .ipfs directory.
In that way i will be able to fetch the file structure from the local root folder.
So if i want to achieve my goal i can either use –nocopy, or have all needed metadata (filenames etc) managed by my app, am i correct?
